can I grow this plant in side in the winter and out side In summer?
henry y on Feb 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That was my plan. The key lime did great outside all summer, but when I
brought it in for the winter eventually all the leaves fell off. I don't know if this
was suppose to happen. The branches are still green and I continue to water weekly. I have
the plant in a bright east window on a warm heated floor. I have read elsewhere to trim any dead off this spring and set it back outside when the night temperatures stay warm. It should put on new leaves.
I have a lime tree that was purchased last April that lived outside all summer and did fine all winter indoors. I live in Missouri. I was ready to put it outside this week because of the nice warm weather. However a few days ago it's suddenly started dropping leaves and turning yellow so now I hesitate Putting it outside. Any ideas?
Mary B on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Citrus trees drop their leaves as a sign of stress. The yellow color could be a sign of overwatering or a nutrient deficiency. Only water potted trees when the soil is dry to the touch to avoid overwatering and make sure they are planted in a container with adequate drainage. Fortunately, once the stress factor passes (which can include temperature changes, light changes, lack of humidity, etc.), otherwise healthy citrus trees put on new leaves to replace the ones that drop in time. Placing your tree outdoors, as long as the weather remains above 55-60??F, should be fine. It may even help encourage new leaves to grow.

Lime Time!
I actually purchased this as a gift for a dear friend who moved from WI to CO; I just got pictures last week, and she's very excited to see strong growth & hoping for a bumper crop from the plant this season.
The tree & kit are FANTASTIC! I ordered Limes & Lemons for Mom's patio this year & I'll need Christmas in July this year to get all the items on MY wish list!

Slow growing, but attractive and easy to care for
This plant grows rather slowly, and after two years I still haven't seen any limes, but it appears healthy and has a lot of attractive, dark green leaves. It doesn't require a whole lot of water or care, and is a lovely addition to my living room

I killed this one
I will give Lavern credit (yes I named her) she made it a good solid 9 months... I went to the hospital to have a baby, but God gives, and God takes away... And we don't always know why. Lavern was in good health when I received her, but after potting her she never did look as good as her sister (the Orange tree aka Shirley), when I came home all of her leaves had fallen off. I don't know if that supposed to happen but I didn't want to upset Shirley, so I seperated them... And then I kind of forgot about her so... She's really dead now. On the plus side, the baby's doing great! Haven't forgo to feed or water her once!

The key lime failed miserably. Leaf drop and recovery until the plant failed. The meyer lemon I got at the same time did well.
