How to care for Limena
Persian Lime plants originate from the tropical regions of Southeast Asia and therefore prefer warm temperatures and higher humidity. These fruity fellas require plenty of sunlight, so a south or west-facing window would be ideal. When it comes to watering, it's important to not over-water as they are susceptible to root rot. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Also, fertilize your Persian lime plant every 2-3 weeks during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer. Oh and did you know Persian limes are known for their thin skin and high juice content? It makes them a top choice for culinary use!
In order for these fruit bearing trees to flourish, put them in a bright spot that will provide a few hours of direct sunlight each day. They love high humidity and also need the night time temperature drops to produce fruit!
