New to Citrus, Start From Seed or Buy Grown?
I have many house plants but no trees. I want to start to grow a blood orange tree but have heard a couple of things about them. Please correct me if I am wrong. I read that because they are varigated, one cannot grow a blood orange tree from the seeds in the actual blood orange. I also was told to put the seeds in water over night before I plant them, however this might have been because I was at work eating a blood orange and thought "hey! Why not grow one!". Not as easy as I thought.
I also want to grow an avacado tree (I know, this is the citrus forum) and this I know I can do from seed. Yay! :) But as far as citrus trees are concerned, should I grow one from seed or buy a established one from the store?
What would be a good type of citrus to grow indoors, in Texas? Would it stay in all year round? During the Spring, Summer and Fall I could keep the tree outside unless the heat in the summer would be too much. You know Texas weather, its Summer, Summer, Summer and then a breif mixture between fall and winter haha! :D Though this season we've been getting an oddly high amount of rain, my plants are in humidity heaven :P
Any help on easy growing citurs trees or trees in general to keep indoors would be great! As I only know of the ficus tree to be indoors. Though, Mike has explained that he grows citrus easily indoors, lets hope I'm as lucky as he.
Thanks for the help!
