Q.Less Leaves In My Kaffir Lime Plant

Zone Hyderabad | ughosh added on October 30, 2020 | Answered

I had bought a kaffir lime plant online in India. Now the plant that was delivered, is not too healthy. I have planted it in a big pot and also watering it adequately. Its also getting good sunlight now. However, it does not have too many leaves, but it is already bearing 2 limes and a third one is also coming up. So, should I pluck away the fruits to help the plant grow the leaves? Or what additional should i do for leaves to grow.

You can remove the limes and store them in the freezer if they are mature enough to use the rind. Then prune lightly to encourage branching.
