    Meyers are known for not self-regulating production and they will nearly kill themselves overdoing it. So you have to be brutal and take a bunch out yourself. Wait until fruit has formed, then take it off. I might let it make one or two until it fills out a bit – it doesn’t look happy. There is a fantastic group on FB that is super helpful for citrus – Indoor Citrus Growers (you don’t have to be indoors). They are heavy feeders.
