Manual Pollination For Indoor Citrus Trees Manual Pollination For Indoor Citrus Trees
Indoor citrus trees can provide bright, attractive color and sweet smell to your home. Choose a dwarf of tree that will produce lemons, limes or grapefruit as well as lovely flowers.
Your citrus tree should be placed beneath a sun lamp or in direct sunlight from a south-facing window. Water it daily. During summer, protect the tree from midday sun.
Your indoor tree needs to be fertilized 3 times a year, during spring, summer and fall.
Without bees and other bugs in your house, you will need to pollinate the flowers yourself. Otherwise, the tree will not produce any fruit.
All you need is a paintbrush. Stroke the center of each flower, brushing the stamen and then the pistil to move pollen.
