HOW TO GROW ORANGE FRUIT FROM SEEDS
The best time to sow the seeds of orange is in spring when the soil is warm enough. There will only be a small percentage of seedlings that will eventually grow young, so you will need to sow many seeds. Sowing should be done in large pots with 3-inch spacing and the seeds should be sown consecutively with 1-inch spacing. Now, wait patiently for the seedlings to come out.
HOW TO CARE FOR ORANGE PLANTS AFTER GERMINATION
You need to keep the soil moist (but not sticky) until the seedlings appear. When the seedlings reach a height of 20-28 cm, they can be transplanted into large pots filled with soil, fertilizer, and a small amount of rotted fertilizer. In general, young plants should be well exposed to the sun but should live for the first winter in a protected indoor space.
