Indoor Citrus Trees

Little Green Notebook: Calamondin (Indoor) Orange Trees.

After seeing a post from Jenny over at Little Green Notebook on citrus trees, I was so inspired to try this in my own home. Unfortunately though, I don’t really have a window that allows enough light in for the trees. Especially, since I live in a home built in the 1950s (that hasn’t been updated much), the isolation just isn’t energy efficient enough for me to leave the blinds up and curtains tied back all day. Also, I live in Austin, Texas where it’s like 159 degrees everyday. I’m on a mission now to find a way to do this. Maybe a small lime tree in the kitchen?

Another bonus to having these plants inside, is that plants in your home help to filter out harmful toxins. Not to mention, they produce yummy fruit. By the way, did you know that ivy in your kitchen filters out harmful gas from your stove. Making the air better quality.

I’m inspired in more way then one.

Do you have a indoor citrus tree? I’d like to know any tips or ideas you might have about owning one.
