    Temperatures between 50-80F though will survive down to 32F

    What Meyer lemon trees don't like:
    Wet feet (too much water will kill them)
    Freezing temperatures
    Not enough or too much fertilizer
    Not enough light
    Strong winds

    Sun and Temperature: All citrus trees love sun - the more the better. They are happiest in temperatures between 50-80°F. That means, unless you live in USDA zones 9-11, you'll want to bring your Meyer lemon tree inside when temperatures start regularly dipping below 50F. In spring, bring your tree outside, and put it in a sunny protected spot when nighttime temperatures are consistently above 50. It's a good idea to slowly acclimate any plant to outdoor conditions by hardening it off.
