I was wondering whether anyone can help identify this plant?
My mother is convinced it is a lemon tree but I'm not sure if they can grow indoors and with Canadian weather.

I would be willing to believe it is a lemon - or some similar citrus.

Me too. If you can give it enough sun, like right in front of a south facing widow, it can grow...but not ever have fruit indoors unless you hand pollinate. I'll never understand why folks want to grow trees, or any plant that takes full sun and high temps indoors, but I suppose some do it for the challenge. Probably at least as easy as me trying to grow fruit or perennials that needs 400 hours of winter chill. LOL!

That's fascinating! I'll be sure to give this little plant as much sunlight as I can. Thank you so much for the help and good luck with your fruits and perennials Big Grin

My daughter grows dwarf citrus here in Reno in a temperate greenhouse. She gets fruit every year because most citrus are self-fruitful so a gentle breeze from her fans does the job.
