Plant Care – Citrus aurantifolia ‘Mexican Lime’ Plant
Light: Place your Citrus aurantifolia ‘Mexican Lime’ Plant outdoors where it can be under bright and direct sunlight for at least 10 hours a day. It can be grown under partial shade but it will slow down its growth rate.
Water: Water your plant whenever the top inch of the soil is dry to the touch, and make sure to water thoroughly till some water flows through the pot’s drainage holes. Water more frequently during the hotter seasons.
Soil: The Citrus aurantifolia thrives in well-aerated soil that drains water quickly, and therefore should not be placed in soils that are too compacted and heavy, which cause prolonged periods of water retention. And this can lead to root problems, for instance, root rot.
Fertiliser: Fertilise your plant with a slow-releasing fertiliser with an NPK ratio of 2:1:1. It is recommended to fertilise with a fertiliser containing higher nitrogen levels.
Humidity Requirement: Medium
