- Scientifically known as Citrus meyeri
- Pronounced sit-rus may-er-ree
- Also commonly known as Chinese Dwarf Lemon.
- Dwarf lemon trees are not only popular for their small size, which allows them to be grown in containers, but also for their year-round attractiveness and prolific fruit production.
- Plant your dwarf lemon in loose, rich soil. The soil should be well-draining.
- Citrus trees in general need a lot of water, and the dwarf lemon is no exception. The soil should be consistently moist, but never soggy, which can lead to root rot.
- Dwarf lemon trees thrive in the sunlight. They need exposure to a minimum of eight hours of sunlight per day, and preferably twelve.
