    Question

    Has any one ever tried to grow an orange tree from seeds? It is really cool to watch them grow.

    Sorry I am late to replying to this but yes I have an orange tree also. Very easy to grow and the flowers smell wonderful! My house smells like a citrus grove every spring. But anyhow, I have it in a mix of regular houseplant soil, vermiculite, and a bit of perlite. It is doing fine and has new growth that has emerged since I have had it. If you want to try one I suggest go for it! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Don't expect tasty sweet oranges if you grow from seed. Citrus that you buy are all hybrids and chances are extremely slim (possible though) that you will get "true" fruit. Typically you get a wild orange... very sour. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    The blossoms do smell sweet though. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    How about kumquat? Has anyone tried growing one of these? I once had some seeds that I wanted to grow, but I lost them. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] I don't know about wild oranges, but kumquats could probably make your face implode!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] I'm gonna see if I can find more of those seeds.

    I tried growing an orange tree in a 2 litter pop bottle, during my pre-high school yrs. It was in there for about 2 yrs. in front of a huge window that got plenty of sun.............. poor little tree never got past 4 1/2 leaves. Then I had to start high school and left my little tree behind. I wonder if they remembered to water it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
