Best Grow Lights For Citrus Trees

Growing citrus indoors is one of the most satisfying home plants you can cultivate, whether you’re seeking for a new challenge or it’s your only alternative. Continue reading to learn how to grow citrus trees as houseplants.

The bulk of house plants are tropical in origin, making them well-suited to our warm indoor environment. Citrus trees aren’t any different. Look no further for all of our plant-obsessed friends wishing to get into the rare indoor plant game! Citrus trees are easy to grow house plants and make for a gorgeous piece of greenery that will brighten your room, but there are a few crucial aspects to consider for your plants to thrive.

Indoor citrus trees require approximately 8-12 hours of direct sunlight per day to grow healthy and effectively. For the greatest results, use a south-facing window with plenty of light. You may need to supplement light with full spectrum grow lights if you plan on growing in a space with less than 5 hours of sunshine or if you get less than 5 hours of sunlight during the winter months. T5 fluorescent bulbs with a color temperature of 6500k are appropriate for most indoor growing applications. To provide appropriate light while also preventing light burn, these lamps should be kept 1′-2′ above the trees at all times. LED lights, as long as they are full-spectrum, are another excellent option. LEDs are more expensive, but they penetrate deeper into the tree’s canopy, resulting in a fuller tree. Keep in mind that depending on the wattage, lights can be a major generator of heat, so keep that in mind when picking your lighting design. If you choose a high wattage bulb, keep in mind that the higher the wattage, the higher the heat production, therefore avoid positioning your lights too close to your plants.
