  • CommentsNothing freshens the air like the pleasant fresh citrus fragrance given off by the beautiful, waxy white blossoms of these unique tropical plants. Move to a bright light indoors for the winter. Four hours or more of direct sunlight from a South window. Let plant approach dryness before watering. Average indoor humidity levels. Day temperature 65 - 70 degrees F; night temperature 50 - 55 degrees F. Use an acid-balanced fertilizer throughout the year and add trace elements in Spring. Leaves will drop if soil is too wet or too dry. High Ph or high soluble salts can cause leaf yellowing. Will not bloom if light is too low. May need to hand-pollinate for better fruit production.
