I have an orange tree in a container in my classroom for the past 3 yrs. I placed it in southwestern facing window until I repotted it this year and it was too big to sit on the window sill. I have had 2 "crops" of oranges and the kids love watching the little oranges grow. They are very easy to grow.I water when it gets a little dry,use all purpose plant food every two weeks during the spring and summer months and keep it in a sunny window and repot when it gets rootbound.

While I was researching which citrus tree to get for my apartment, I read frequently that orange trees in general were high maintenance. So far, all I've done is fertilize every three weeks or so and it seems to have settled in just fine! One thing I wasn't aware of is how strong the scent of the blooms are. It's VERY strong. I view that as a nice perk, but realize some people may not. Also, while it's blooming, be careful about jostling it as the buds may fall off.
