Fruit trees need about 8-12 hours of sunlight per day. Place your tree near a sunny window with south or west exposure.

If you get less than 6 hours of sunlight per day your may need to supplement with a grow light. If your tree does not get at least 6 hours of sunlight per day it will not produce fruit.

Many citrus plants are drought resistant. You want to water them approximately every 7- 10 days and be careful to avoid over watering.

These plants like a lot of moisture so if you live in a dry climate make sure you give them a good misting with a spray bottle on a regular basis.

You can fertilize your citrus trees about once a month. Citrus trees require a steady supply of nitrogen so choose a fertilizer with nitrogen as well as iron, zinc and manganese. Compost tea made from worm castings is also great for indoor plants.
