How do I care for an indoor blooming Meyer lemon tree in the winter?

I live in the North and will be bringing my 2 year old lemon tree indoors soon. It has 1 lemon left on it from spring growth, but has gotten many blooms last month. Do I put it through a rest period, or do I energize it to grow? Thanks

If you intend to get fruit from the tree, eventually, then you will have to put it under at least 200 watts of horticultural lighting during the winter. Otherwise, it will go into a semi-dormant state during this time, thus never allowing to to form fully mature fruit.

If you just want the tree to stay alive, and produce flowers form time to time, then you won’t need extra light. They just won’t produce with the lack of light throughout the winter time.
