clementine seeds

o How do I know when to replant it in a larger pot?

The explanation for the sentence you find confusing is, if you plant a seed from a clementine fruit,it won’t come true, meaning any fruit you might get is very unlikely to be a clementine – it may turn out to be a sour orange, or a smaller fruit that is bitter, there’s no way of knowing. Be warned that some citrus plants grown from seed may want to get huge, maybe 40 feet high, before they will produce any fruit at all.

o I’ve seen various estimates for how large it might eventually grow. As I can’t plant it outdoors, given our cold winters, will it eventually be feasible to keep it inside in a room with a normal

Clementine seeds

Place the seeds in a cup of lukewarm tap water and let them sit for 24 hours. Although soaking the seeds in water before planting is not necessary for germination, it does increase the chance of the seeds germinating successfully. Note: If you do not intend to plant the seeds right away, dry them completely and then put them in an airtight container. This prevents the growth of microorganisms. Storing them in cool or even cold location until you’re ready to plant is also essential to prevent seed destruction.

Place the pot near a bright window or outside on a bright balcony where it will receive a few hours of direct sunlight each day. Remove the bag to water whenever the surface of the soil appears dry.

Plant each seed into a 3-inch pot. Plant the seed 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep into a rich but well-drained potting soil with a neutral or slightly acidic pH balance. Water the soil of the pot until it is soaked and let it drain.

Remove the seeds from the fruit. Rinse the seeds under lukewarm tap water. Rinse off any juice and remove all fruit flesh from around the seeds. Any fruit left around the seeds will rot when planted in the soil and could result in mold or fungus that might destroy the seeds.
