I have a little over 2 year old potted lemon tree that I planted with seeds from a lemon. It's about 4-5 feet tall but keeps growing straight. How can I help it branch out? I've tried pruning it and re-soiling it but nothing seems to work.

Welcome!

How big do you want it to be? It will branch at the leaf nodes just below where you make your cut. I see some branches off the sides down low.

It looks like it could use some citrus food.
