Meet Limena, the citrus Persian lime. Limena may be small in size, but packs a big punch of flavor. A bit of a sourpuss at first, but once you get to know him, you'll find he has a zesty and refreshing personality. He's the life of the party, always adding a little spark to any dish he's in. Just don't leave him unattended for too long, or he'll start to pucker up. But even then, he's still the go-to guy for a classic Margarita
What type of care your plant needs
Doesn't need extra water, the occasional rainy day will do/Often needs extra water during the summer/Needs to be watered on the regular, keep the soil slightly moist.
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!
