Lemon Tree Propagation


Anonymous added on December 29, 2014 | Answered

We have an indoor lemon tree (8+ years old) which has never flowered or fruited. What (if anything) can we do to get lemons? We live in Alaska, but it has much sunlight and good temperature. Thanks for your help.

The soil may be lacking phosphorus. Add bone meal. This article will explain more:

Additionally, it may not be getting quite enough water or fertilizer, or it may have too much nitrogen, which inhibits flowering and fruiting. I would make sure you are watering well and give it some high phosphorus fertilizer to counter any nitrogen overload the plant may have.
