Lemon Tree Pink Variegated
The Variegated Pink Lemon Tree, aka Citrus limon or Eureka Pink Lemon Tree, is an eye-catching citrus that will be unique in your collection. Unlike the original Lemon Tree, this variety boasts variegated leaves as well as variegated fruit, not to mention the flesh of the fruit is pink, rather than the common yellow! With the correct care, your plant will produce gorgeous green and cream leaves with yellow fruit lined with green stripes. The fruit of these beauties is also a much more mild flavour.
They love as much sun as possible. The best spot for them is where they can see the sun during the majority of the day.
They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.
Lemon trees will not tolerate hot or cold drafts, so keep them away from all air conditioning and heating vents, as well as any open windows during the winter. Consistency is key with citrus plants and avoids keeping the soil too wet, as this will affect the growth of your plant. Train your plant to go outside in the warmer months by allowing the plant to sit outside in more and more sun each week until it is in full sun for about 8 hours a day. Abrupt changes in light and temperature will cause leaf drop so change environmental conditions gradually.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
