When it comes to aromatizing the home, we almost always use industrial products, laden with harmful chemicals that we end up inhaling throughout the day.
In this article, we propose an excellent alternative to give our homes a very pleasant aroma, while adding an element of great aesthetic value. The solution is simple: plant a lemon in a cup.
Very rich in nutrients and very versatile in the kitchen, lemons have an incomparable aroma, and a small plant is enough to guarantee an intense aroma throughout the house.
How do I grow lemon in a cup?
Obtain the seeds from 5 to 10 lemons, selecting them carefully to remove any damaged or cut ones.
Put the seeds in a glass of water and discard any that float: you’ll only need the ones that settle to the bottom of the glass.
Dry the seeds well with absorbent paper.
Put some moist, black potting soil in a cup, then place the seeds until almost all the topsoil is covered.
Cover with a layer of small gravel.
Seedlings will appear after about 10-15 days. From then on, water every morning with a bottle fitted with a spray diffuser.
