– Organic lemon seeds;

Then fill the pot almost to the top with soil.
Choose the seeds you’re going to use. Remember to keep them wet until it’s time to plant them.
Plant the seeds half an inch under the soil (the top of the last layer you added) and squirt some water over them with the bottle.
Cover the pot with the trash bag, and poke a few holes in it.
Put the pot somewhere warm with lots of direct sunlight.
The soil can’t become dry, so spray water whenever you think it may be drying out, but don’t overdo it.

Don’t ever forget to water it, a make sure it has plenty of sunlight and fertilizer.
This process requires patience, but the end result will be worth it.
