Over the past several years, innovations in lighting design have led to devices that make growing indoors cheap and easy. Compact areas are further aided by the development of miniaturized trees. These dwarf trees grow in between one and two meters high and actually develop a very high yield of fruits. Their size can further be lessened by putting them in pots and pruning them once right below the wanted size. The compact size of these plants allows them to be placed on a balcony or even in a tiny closet with ease. This is also very beneficial for a small yard where the grower wants to have several different plants and trees placed in the locations where there is the most sun.
Another bonus of having these small trees is being able to easily grow them indoors. Lately, LED light bulbs have been introduced that are extremely effective, and power efficient types of indoor growing. Small pots and regular pruning of the fruit trees can restrict their growth to an even greater extent to suit the grow area. Another advantage is that indoor growing is season resistant, since the lighting cycles are controlled by the grower rather than by nature. This takes the area out of the equation, and allows apple trees or other fruits to grow in locations that normally do not support healthy plant growth.
A huge benefit of growing dwarfed trees is the time of growth for both the fruit and the tree itself. Many tree types have to grow for a long time before they produce enough fruit to feed a family or one person. Given that the grower has full control over all conditions and waterings, dwarf trees will end up growing much faster than regular-sized trees. In order to get the tree to blossom more quickly, the light cycle can be switched; this will help to provide fruit earlier. Potted trees can be moved when the temperature gets too cold, as well, saving them from freezing and perishing as a result.
