The plants we keep at home are very effective in decorating environments and purifying the air we breathe. We usually choose plants based on their colors, their meaning and their size. Another determining factor is undoubtedly the perfume.
Lemon is an exceptional fruit, rich in vitamins and with powerful health benefits. In this article we explain how to germinate lemon seeds in a cup to have a plant that decorates your home and fills it with a delicious aroma .
To begin with you need to get some lemon seeds, and to do this you have two options: you can take the seeds from the next lemon you will use in the kitchen, or buy them in specialized shops. If you choose the first option, soak them for a while to remove the skin covering them.
Then you will need to get a cup of about 250-300 ml. Fill it with soil and place the lemon seeds 2-3 centimeters deep.
The lemon seed needs about 7 days to germinate, then the growth of the seedling will be slower and will also depend on the care it receives.
How to care for the lemon seedling
Lemon, like all citrus fruits, requires specific care. Below we suggest specific care to keep it inside your home.
Topsoil . Get permeable, well-aerated soil. Lemons need a lot of water, so the soil must be able to absorb it in the best possible way.
Temperature . The lemon plant is very sensitive to the cold, but this is a problem that does not arise since you will keep it inside the house. The ideal temperature for the lemon seedling is between 15 and 25 degrees.
Waterfall . Humidity is another very important factor. Lemon needs a lot of water, to be added slowly to avoid stagnation. Keep the soil moist at all times.
