 Ginda,
Your potted meyer is grafted on Trifoliate Orange. It usually has 3
leaves (hence the name Trifoliata). Trifoliate orange is hardy in your
area. If you like, you can cut off the peice of the rootstock, and root
it. Cuttings of trifoliate orange take about one year to take.

  My potted meyers lemon has a sprout from below the graft. It looks
  completely different: the leaf is long and has three leaflets, and
  the
  stem has more, thinner spikes.

  I plan to remove it, but I'm curious what it might be. Any guesses?

  The plant is hardy to about 20F, and the mature bark on the stock
  looks
  just like the mature bark on the lemon.
