Cupressus macrocarpa ‘Gold Crest’
“Lemon Cypress”

Light: Grown indoors, Lemon Cypress need a sunny window with at least six hours of direct sun rays a day. Typically western and southern windows provide this.

Water: Keep these trees evenly watered. While they do not want any standing, surplus water, it’s important that the soil is always damp.  

Environment: Particularly in the winter months, avoid dry drafts, such as from heating vents. Air circulation is also important so avoid overcrowding with other houseplants. Rotate routinely so that all sides of the plant receive some sunlight.

Toxicity:  Reported to be non-toxic to animals.

Of Note:

  • In warmer climates, these trees can be grown outdoors year round, but in those climates with harsh winters they can make a very fine and unique houseplant.
The bright foliage, and lemony-scent make this a wonderful addition to a sunny windowsill.

*When planting in a pot without a drainage hole, avoid over watering by estimating 25% of the container’s overall volume, with appropriate drainage materials incorporated when planting. Printable Care Sheet
