Citrus Plants -Not so Easy

I had a lemon plant and a lime plant that I bought from a nursery. One died after I had it for a couple of years. I had to throw the other one out, because it got infested with bugs, aphids I think. Citrus plants are hard to grow inside. They exude sticky stuff; it got all over the table they were on. They probably need more light than I was able to give them, and maybe they need to be misted every day to keep the humidity up. I produced 1 or 2 limes the second year. So in caee you are thinking of picking up one of those pretty lime trees, be forewarned that they are high maintenance. The blossoms sure do smell good though.
