The lemon tree as a house plant

We can begin with growing lemons indoors. The trees make surprisingly attractive house plants, but they do need a little more space than most of your other indoor plants. They can grow just fine in a container, but the container needs have a good drainage system and needs to offer the plant enough room to grow. The height of a mature plant will range from three to five feet if grown indoors. One tricky thing is that the soil needs to be moist, but it also needs to drain very thoroughly.
