Here I will share some photos, and info that I have gained while enjoying my new "Green Friend"
First- it is budding, now that it is indoors for the winter!
It was a tree that I wondered if I could keep as a houseplant, I have a room that will become the "SOLARIUM" in my home. It's short wall faces south.
I'm planning new windows, and mirror tiling the walls and possibly the ceiling also. For the floor I guess a very light tile will do.
~I can do that, I have gained a lot of skills over time
As you can see, the blossoms are about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 inch wide. I find this plant fascinating.....
There are at least 200+ buds forming up just now
Anyway, last night I installed a flourescent fixture in the corner running vertically. About a four foot one. I want to move another one from my garage to the other corner of that end of the room. In the dead of winter I want light to shine on my citrus buddies.
I also have a triple light fixture that will hang above them all.
I grow these trees in six or so gallon (24 litre?) laundry buckets, so that they have enough root-room to achieve a height of at least six feet.
As you can see below, IT'S ALREADY THERE!
The above was a few days ago, while it was in the living room. It's final resting place is in a den next the LR which will be transformed into a wonderful place all year 'round...
The problem with it being in the living room was that the window behind it was solarised glass - it cuts the light-flow through it down dramatically
I didn't want that.
(pictures of the new location will follow eventually, please be patient with me)
