How to Grow and Care for Meyer Lemon + Key Lime Tree Pack

Meyer Lemon + Key Lime Tree Pack (Citrus × meyeri ‘Improved,’ Citrus aurantifolia) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 4-11 patio / 8-11 outdoors
Harvest time February - March

Planting

Both the Meyer Lemon and Key Lime will grow best when planted in a warm, sunny spot with well-draining soil. Six hours (or more) of direct sun is best.

If you’re planting in containers, select pots that are 1 to 2 pot sizes larger than your shipped containers (one for each plant). Fill the bottom of your pot with a 2-inch layer of crushed stone to improve drainage. Center your tree, fill with soil, water well, and place near a south-facing window.

Note: The leaves of the Meyer Lemon can be toxic to pets.

Watering

Allow the soil to dry down to 2 inches between waterings.

While the roots prefer to stay on the dry side, citrus leaves love humidity. Indoor citrus trees will do best if misted daily, especially when you are running your heat during cooler months. You can also use a humidifier or fill your pot’s saucer with rocks and add water – place your plant on the rocks, ensuring the bottom of the pot is above the waterline.

Pollination

Both the Meyer Lemon and Key Lime are self-fertile, so you’ll get fruit with just one plant. You’ll get a greater fruit yield the more trees you plant. Our two-in-one Meyer Lemon and Key Lime Pack provides double the pollination power!

Fertilizing

Fertilize regularly with a high-nitrogen blend (like you’ll find in our Citrus Tree Care Kit) each month between April and September.

GCP Tip: Yellowing leaves may indicate the need for more fertilizer.

Pruning

Prune as needed to maintain your Meyer Lemon and Key Lime trees’ shape. Clip off any branches that are too long. Remove branches growing toward the trunk of the bush instead of away from it. This will maintain airflow between the branches.
