Lemon seedlings, the peeled seed method: here’s the incredible result The first thing to do is to take a ripe lemon and cut it – using a knife – exactly in half. Each half of the citrus will then be squeezed by hand, using a juicer. At this stage, the seeds will be separated from the actual lemon juice. In creating a new lemon plant, the seeds will be the elements that interest us.

Lemon plant To implement this incredible trick, all you have to do is take one of these seeds, removing the outer skin. You can use a regular pair of tweezers, the kind used, for example, to remove a few too many hairs from our body or eyebrows.

Once you have removed the outer skin of one or more seeds, here is the exact procedure to follow to sprout your lemon plant in 30 days. You will need to take a small transparent plastic box, with a lid, and place a towel at the bottom of it.

On the towel inside the box, you will then insert the previously peeled seeds. Once this is done, you will need to spray a little water on the seeds, covering everything with another towel. Sprinkle a little more water and close the container with the seeds inside using a lid. Above, you will need to mark the date on which you did all this.

What do you need to do now? Here is the complete procedure to get a lemon plant using the peeled seed technique.

All steps to follow carefully This box will be placed in a very bright indoor area of your apartment. The important thing is that the box is never left in the sun for a long time or, in any case, in direct contact with the sun’s rays. The seeds, in fact, could burn.

Lemon seeds After 15 days, you will notice how the seeds have developed a hint of roots, a clear sign that the process is bearing fruit. At this point, you can go and sow each seed in pots with roots. Each seed will correspond to a vase. In the pot, fairly acidic soil – with a pH between 5.5 and 6.5 – will be placed, and indeed, our seed.

It will be necessary to create a small space in the center of the soil and place the seed with the roots down at a depth of about 1 centimeter. Once the seed has been planted in the soil and covered with it, watering will be necessary. To do this, use a spray to avoid creating dangerous water stagnation.

That’s not all. Take a plastic food bag and place the pot inside, closing it well. Even in the following days, the sun’s rays should not directly hit the pot. When a total of 30 days have passed, we will notice how our lemon plants have started to emerge from the ground.

With the peeled seed technique, we have thus created one (or more) lemon seedlings. After a few months, our seedling will have grown a few centimeters. At least until one year old, it is advisable to keep it still in a bright place but not in direct contact with the sun. Constant watering will be important.

At the age of one year, the plant can be placed directly in the ground. Finally, at the age of two, the plant can be grafted, so that it can produce lemons over time.”
