Several months ago just for fun I planted a seed from a clementine (or maybe it was a mandarin) in a flower pot using some organic potting soil. The pot is 8 inch in diameter and 7 inch tall and has drainage holes. To my surprise, it is doing very well, especially as we have been putting it out during the daytime in this North East U.S summer. It's now about a foot tall with new leaves sprouting all the time. Being a total novice in this area, I'm seeking some guidance about what to expect and what to do. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
o Am I supposed to be feeding the plant? If so, with what and how often?
o How do I know when to replant it in a larger pot?
o I've seen various estimates for how large it might eventually grow. As I can't plant it outdoors, given our cold winters, will it eventually be feasible to keep it inside in a room with a normal ~ 8 ft ceiling height and is there something I can do to restrict its growth without harming it?
o The last sentence in this article (Which came first, the Clementine or the seed?) is confusing and I don't understand what it implies as far as being able to eat any eventual fruit from the plant : Clementine is seedless only if grown in isolation. Don't you be tempted to plant any of these seeds, though, because if the seedlings were to bear fruits, they would not, of course, be Clementines.
