Now remember water is a primary importance to your lime tree seed and is gauged by the size of the tree and temperatures. Reduce water prior to winter to avoid the possibility of stimulation growth that may become damaged in cooler temperatures. Overwatering can become an issue, but just don’t let the tree dry out completely! Allow the upper inch of the soil to dry out before watering. Metal, ceramic, and plastic containers stay wet longer than wood or clay containers. Water the lime seeds gently until the entire surface of the soil feel damp. Continue to water the seeds whenever the top 1″ of soil feels Dry.

Owning a lime tree or a Lemon Tree has several benefits, not only are you able to get a Lime at any time you would like, but your friends will be jealous of you and your beautiful center piece. In this article we will go over how to not only start your own Lime Tree in your living room but maintain and care for it also.

First of you will need a pot that has a base so you can keep indoors and will also hold water. We would recommend getting a 5-10 gallon pot . Then you will want 6-8″ of potting soil in the bottom of the pot. You will want to add a slow release fertilizer, such as Osmocote. We use Miracle Grow Potting Soil for our Potting Soil. You will need to soak the Lime seeds in warm water for 2-3 hours before planting to ensure a fast germination, once you have the seeds soaked for 2-3 hours you will want to plant them 2-4″ deep within the potting soil mix.

How to Plant Lime Tree Seeds

Fertilize the lime tree monthly until midsummer and never after July, we recommend going to buy Liquid Miracle Grow and follow the instructions “EXACTLY”. Watch for germination about 12-14 days or 2 weeks, when germination occurs, move the seedlings to a sunny location, or provide adequate artificial light. Lime trees cannot tolerate temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, so in winter move them indoors or they won’t survive. Your lime tree should produce limes 90-120 days from the time it germinates. Enjoy your great indoor lime tree and enjoy a Margarita once you get your first lime you deserve it.

They’re also excellent paired with seafood, to replace the usual sliced lemon on oysters and seashells. Amateurs of sushi will love adding it as a delicious variation. Spread them across grilled fish to hydrate with a delicious touch. Also great with poultry and white meats.

Their juice is trapped in tiny capsules that look like pearls, and burst in the mouth, releasing an explosion of flavors like lemon, citrus and grapefruit: this is the “lime caviar” that great chefs crave!

Pick the finger limes when they easily break off from their branch. Before that, they’re very bitter.

Citrus is vulnerable to loss of apical dominance. New shoots come from the lower trunk upon pruning, instead of branching out from the tip of the tree. This results in a hard-to-train tree that is more vulnerable to disease. It is the result of insufficient availability of boron trace elements.

What to cook with finger lime

Every two weeks, during the growth phase, add citrus-specific fertilizer to boost fruit-bearing.

The plant has trouble coping with air that is too dry: it develops brown leaf edges. In this case, try to increase humidity in the air around it.

When pruning finger lime trees, wear gloves to protect your hands, because their thorns are very prickly.

Finger lime native habitat

This tiny wasp only a few millimeters long lays eggs in fresh shoots. They commandeer growth of the branch to form a gall and then hatch. This pest is currently only found in Australia, although possible sightings in New Zealand indicate it may be spreading further. The best way to deal with it is to prune out gall-infected branches before any adult citrus wasp hatches.

Potted Australian finger lime cannot extract the nutrients they need from the ground.
