My Kaffir Lime Tree is Dying!

Ya. Hopefully I'll have good things to say, because I've been checking up on it, and the two leaves that were left curled in on themselves. It is in a good sized pot, and the drainage is excellent. So, I'll try to stay positive. I'll let you know if it starts new growth.

My Kaffir Lime Tree is Dying!

Okay. So I re-potted it in a more appropriately sized container and I trimmed the four dry leaves to a stump. As much as it emabarasses me to admit, I noticed it had some plastic wrap on the center stalk, and in taking it off, I felt like the tree would be happier. I guess I assumed it was meant for keeping the tree 'dwarfed.'

Very much! Thank you. Thankfully I'm not entirely new to pruning and such, but ya, it's scary. I'll see what I can do. Your information is really helpful.

My Kaffir Lime Tree is Dying!

I'm pretty sure I might have over watered since in the beginning I was competing with the Early Fresnan summer heat and I didn't pay enough attention to the moistness of the soil. I'd like to know what I can do to save the plant. Thank you.

My Kaffir Lime Tree is Dying!

I live in the Fresno area and decided to buy a Kaffir Lime tree to facilitate my panang curry cravings. Problem is, I don't know what to do with this little guy. The Fresno made it look like it was wilting, and when I brought it inside, the leaves developed those rounded nodules on the sides, but the color has gone even paler. I'm at a loss. Any ideas on how to save it?
