Kaffir Lime Tree Curving at Top

Anonymous added on April 11, 2011 | Answered

My Kaffir lime tree is a year old and approximately five feet tall. The top is now starting to curve over and bend downwards. Should I cut the very top off to take the weight off the plant, or should I put a stake in and tether it to support it? I'm afraid of killing it because I am told (from where I bought mine) that there is a current ban on importing/selling the trees.
