We had a beautiful Lemon Cypress a few months ago. Although we cared of it as best we could, it dried out and could not be saved. Now I have a new one in a pot. What would be the best way to keep it healthy and thriving in or around the house? Thanks, Agnes

Lemon Cypress trees do need quite a lot of water, especially in pots. Make sure to water this new one whenever the soil starts to dry out. Do let it dry out, though - it's easy to overcompensate and accidentally drown a potted plant.
Maybe even more important that water is light. Lemon Cypress trees need lots of sun and really don't do well in the shade. Make sure it's in a place that gets full sun.
