Lemon tree new shoots with huge leaves
We got a lemon tree in September and had it outdoors until 3 weeks ago when we brought it indoors. We put it by the windows with plenty of light, room temperature 19-22 degrees. Since indoors it flowered and it started growing two new shoots with too large leaves. The new leaves are slightly oily and smell amazing, very lemony. The flower is also scenting the whole room. Is this normal? Do I we need to remove the new shoots and flower. Many thanks. Luli

The vigorous shoots with large leaves may be the response from fertilization and/or the warm environment.
You can prune those shoots down half way, or to just above the older growth to avoid excessive height and top-heaviness. But if mine I would not remove the fragrant flowers. And from the flowers is where fruit develops. It appears you plant is happy and productive.
