Cupressus Goldcrest

Cupressus Goldcrest is the name of my new plant. It belongs to the conifer family. According to a website, the leaves will emit lemon scent when crushed or cut. I’ve yet to try it out. Oh wow it is lemony alright.

Its shape is quite similar to a Christmas tree. I’ll keep my cupressus goldcrest potted because on open soil it can grow very large (more than twice a human size).

Let’s hope my dearest cupressus goldcrest can thrive well indoor. Give it enough water, fertilizer, sunshine and not forgetting love. *fingers cross*
