Caring indoor small trees
Watering of your citrus tree depends on the soil mixture and temperature of the room, which keeps changing with the climate. Generally it needs water only for two times in a week. Mild watering is required for these fruit trees grown indoor to keep them moist.
These trees need fertilizer once or twice in a month. Use a balanced water-soluble fertilizer
Also place your indoor tree in a sunny area but not near the window, as it can be very warm there.
Pruning of indoor small fruit trees
While pruning your indoor small tree just look for a brown ring in the trunk, which is known as graft union. Any branch that is growing under the brown ring should be chopped off fully. Also if anything appears awkward to your eyes you can just cut it off.
