Hey everyone! I have a Meyer Lemon tree I've had for about 2yrs now. Last year I kept it inside and didn't put it outside til about late April/May. It got some sort of mite that made it super sticky and so when I brought it outside I sprayed it down with some spray and cut it pretty much down to nubs.
It came back with a vengeance and grew happy and healthy all summer. I brought it back in and it did good for the most part but it's definitely much happier outside. Anyway, it went through a big bloom and has little fruities growing on it. But when it's inside the fruits start to fall off so I want to get it outside as quick as possible.
We've been getting unseasonably warm weather lately so I put the tree outside. I usually empty the pot and re-pot it when I put it outside for good for the summer with some fresh soil.
My question is what's the lowest temps that you've found Meyer lemons to be able to handle? I found a site that says it "does best in 55-70 range" but dies when it goes below 54. I kind of doubt a plant can know the difference between 55 an 54.
I'm thinking of moving it outside during the day and inside at night (spoiled sucker). It has a lot of itty bitty lemons on there right now...I would like to get them to maturity!
