|I want put a lime tree in my garden by next spring. If I started the lime seed in a pot under a single energy saver fluorescent light indoors, could it stay alive untill next spring? The light stays on for most of the daytime.|

Yes, you can grow one from seed. It will be big enough to put out in about 4 years.

|This is my grapefruit I started from a seed I spit into a pot of dirt as a joke,my friend said it wouldnt grow, so here she is 4 years old, she's about 2 feet high and covered in thorns,sorry it isnt a better picture. I have to keep her in a pot so that I can easily bring her in for winter here in NY. Good Luck, its exciting to watch them grow. |

|I just want to grow it indoors under a single fluorescent bulb until next spring when I will transplant it to the ground.|

Not a one. And I know it would already be too cold to put outside at such a young age. It's not even germinated yet. lol.

|You ought to be able to do it. The light that we use to see with is of poor quality for plants. Keep the fluorescent light just 1-4 inches from the leaves, and keep the light on for 12-16 hours a day. Light isn't needed until it sprouts, but watch closely because you will want to start your lighting as soon as it begins to pop out of the ground.|
