Another sprout (the little one in the middle of the picture)

Here is the star


PS. Blondie, I wouldn't mind if it doesn't make any lemons... at this point I am just in love with this baby and we'll see what the future brings.
It looks like you don't need to rush to repot them, if you haven't already. Let them get to be 3 or 4 inches tall. Give them as much light as possible to keep them strong and sturdy (without letting them bake dry).

I once had a whole bunch of orange seeds sprout up in my compost when I didn't eat all of the fruit I was given. They were very tough and didn't die, though I didn't do anything to them at all. Unfortunately I moved away, so I have no idea how they turned out.

They look really sturdy. Now that I found the baby one, I plan to allow them to get taller before I place them in their new home.
I know I will enjoy to see them grow, I am so happy

The pot is not big, I can take it indoors if temperature is getting low.

Default baby lemmon trees

I know that this is an old post, but I'm hoping someone will see it. I planted lemmon seeds 1 1/2 years ago from seed that my wife brought home from California. The lemmons was as big as grapefruit and they were beautiful so I decided to save the seed. The quickly sprouted and I now have plants that are approximately 3ft. tall. They have rather large leaves at the top and smaller leaves going up the entire stem. I'm wondering if anyone know if I should prune offo the leaves that are growing on the lower part of the stem? The stem has not made any branches off of it yet. Does anyone know how long that might take? I have a wonderful southern exposure window and I water them almost daily because they dry out quickly. If you have a reply, can you please also email it to me: [email]george@valleymusiccenter.com[/email]. Thanks so much.

George, I would just pinch them back, nothing major, just the growing tip. See what happens. I think the variety of lemon you have is a Meyer's lemon. Any one else?
