Lemon tree update #3

For those of you who have been following Momfiles for a while you might recall that I planted a Dwarf Meyer lemon tree back in May. It was wee bitty little thing (see picture below) and I was not sure if it would even grow. I updated again 7 weeks later and you were able to tell that it did indeed grow! I don't have a green thumb at all so I was really happy with the progress.

Well now I am happy to report that my little plant has turned into a bush! Look how big it got! It has now been 5 months and it is still doing well. I actually brought it indoors since our temperatures have been flip-floppy. I keep it in a sunny area of the house and plan to re-pot it in the early spring in a bigger container and return it to the outside deck. I actually found a little caterpillar that had fallen off of it and that explained why a few leaves were chewed up.

I may not get any lemons for a while, but I sure am thrilled that my plant is still alive :-)

  1. Oh my gosh, that tiny little bud has come so far! Great job! No green thumb my FOOT! That's a beauty, right there.

  2. That is so awesome. I tend to kill plants. :(

  3. WOw, that's awesome! I kill everything pretty much. I've tried indoor plants, outdoor plants...I just don't have the time or the knack.

  4. I need to plant one of these because it sounds like it's super easy to keep up.

  5. Yay its coming along well. Its like following the growth of a baby. LOL

  6. How cool! Hopefully I'll have one planted by next Spring!

    Hugs and Mocha,
