Plant Care

Watering:
Lemon Cypress cones prefer consistently moist soil, so water them when the top inch of the soil feels dry. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, as they don't tolerate overly soggy conditions. During the growing season (spring and summer), water more frequently, and reduce watering in the dormant season (fall and winter). Mist the foliage occasionally to maintain humidity, as these plants appreciate a slightly humid environment. We recommend measuring the moisture of the soil with a moisture meter.

Light:
Place your Lemon Cypress cone in a location that receives bright, indirect light. It thrives in full sunlight but can adapt to partial shade. If kept indoors, ensure it receives at least 6 hours of sunlight per day. Rotate the plant occasionally to promote even growth. If you notice the foliage becoming sparse or yellowing, it might be an indication of insufficient light. Adjust the placement accordingly to provide optimal light conditions.

Fertilizing:
Feed your Lemon Cypress cone with a balanced, water-soluble or liquid fertilizer fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer). Apply the fertilizer every 4-6 weeks to promote healthy growth. Dilute the fertilizer according to the package instructions to avoid over-fertilizing, which can be harmful to the plant. Refrain from fertilizing during the dormant season. Always water the plant before applying fertilizer to prevent root burn, and be sure to use a formula suitable for evergreen plants.

Repotting:
Repot your Lemon Cypress cone when you notice it outgrowing its current container or if the soil becomes compacted. The ideal time for repotting is usually in the spring. Choose a well-draining potting mix and a container with drainage holes to prevent waterlogging. Gently remove the plant from its current pot, loosen the roots, and place it in the new container. Water thoroughly after repotting and allow the plant to acclimate to its new environment. Keep in mind that Lemon Cypress cones are relatively slow-growing, so they may not require frequent repotting.
