At citrus, including lemons seeds very quickly lose their germination, so plant them immediately after removing from the fruit. Growing plants from seed, most preferably, as during the individual development they adapt to the conditions in which to grow and develop.
One of the main conditions to receive the fruit is the health of the plant and its correct development. In this case, the fruition will come in the fourth year (if the lemon is grown from seed).
The most risk-free way to encourage flowering is to provide a plant of tropical conditions all year round. It is necessary to regularly spray the foliage, watering the flower with warm water to provide it color day 12 hours.
There are also a few radical measures, which resulted in the lemon will either bloom or die. The basis of these methods is the production of plants in such conditions where it is on the verge of life and death. Lemon "understands" that he may die, but the species must live, therefore, he will try to bloom and yield her fruit, i.e., to produce offspring.
The first method. Tighten one of the branches of the ring of wire or bend branches, resulting in disturbed nutrition of the plant.
The second method. Cut off crust "the ring" and by changing the polarity of the segment (backwards), private her to the same place.
And finally, you can "dry up" the plant. Bring it to a dropping of the leaves, and then give him a tropical climate. However, these three methods are quite cruel and can lead to the death of the plant.
There is another way to stimulate flowering and fruiting of a lemon, however, it is a bit troublesome. Private developed the branch, whose age is not less than three years, already platanaceae tree. During the next fruiting rootstock will stimulate the flowering of the Scion, and later blooming branch rooting method of aerial saplings. Lemon, prodanovi at least once, will bear fruit more and more with proper care.
Advice 2: Lemon tree: how to make it to bear fruit
In apartments sometimes you can find lemon trees growing in conventional pots. This plant is quite decorative and looks great in the room, and in winter gardens. But many complain that in spite of all efforts, the lemons grown in the indoor environment, do not produce neither flowers nor fruit. One way to get to the lemon fruit is to graft a kidney is already fruiting lemon.
As with all citrus, lemons are considered the most suitable budding "eye". But before grafting the tree should grow strong and have a fairly thick trunk and branches. Practice beforehand on other plants – willow, lilac.

To find out what this term has come, you can by the presence of 5-6 leaves on young growth. In that case, if the bark is lagging badly, the vaccine will likely not take root.
Okulirovannyh knife, make a thin slice of kidney with stem fruiting lemon. Then, make a T-shaped incision in the place where you will instill a kidney. Separating the kidney, keep it in the petiole of the leaf, not touching the slice with your hands.
The reverse side okulirovka knife, special metal plate fold back the bark on the cut and put it under the grafting kidney. Smoothen the same plate the cut, bring the bark to its original state.
Carefully perform the piping, do not leave gaps through which can evaporate the moisture. Tying should be tight enough to provide a complete reconciliation of grafted kidneys. For this, use the sticky tape or bandage. To be safe, get vaccinated 2-3 buds.
Root buds within three weeks. If the petiole near the eye began to turn yellow and then opal, then your vaccination was successful. Remove the part of the branch at a distance of 10 cm from the inoculated buds, remove the bandage and remove the shoots at the bottom of the plants to develop better vaccinations.
To graft went well, you should know a few tricks: use a very sharp knife with a completely clean blade, it should be free from dirt and especially grease. In addition, the operation should not take much time if the Scion and rootstock will dry out, it will greatly reduce the chance of success of inoculation. Learn to make the vaccination "a single motion".
