Need Advice On Growing Orange Tree In Ohio
Hello! About 1 or 3 years ago I got the idea to grow an orange tree from seed. After eating an orange, I saved the seeds and then proceeded to germinate them. After that, I planted them in a small amount of potting soil and hoped for the best.
Only one seedling survived. Remarkably, this seedling was also able to survive several repottings, 5 cats and several forgotten waterings.
Last year the seedling became around 3-4 feet tall and is still growing. As of now, the tree is in my room. How should I care for it? It is covered in approximately 2 inch thorns, is starting to lean backwards, and has never been fertilized. What should I do to care for this citrus?
