I Have a White Powder Substance Under the Leaves of Lime How Do You Get Rid

My Persian lime tree is flowering but I see this white substance that I believe is a fungus. Is there something that I cam use to remove it without killing the limes that are starting to grow?

Planting Persian Lime Tree With Compost

I have a gift of 6-foot Persian lime tree. I am in Florida, and it will be planted outside. Is there some kind of special compost to put with it when planting?

Persian Lime Tree Problem

Leaves are drying out and curling up. The leaf color is grayish and gold in color. There is new growth at the trunk of the tree. Fruit buds not developing, they turn yellow and drop.

Persian Lime Tree

I noticed leaf curl on my young tree last fall. I sprayed with a Malathion mixture and this helped. I fertilize regularly; however, since spraying we have had no blooms. The tree is growing well. How do we accomplish fruit setting?

Lime Tree Pruning

My 5 year old Persian Lime had a great year with over 500 pieces of beautiful fruit. However, several branches have split from the weight of the fruit. After the harvest is over, can I safely prune the tree? How to proceed? Just the split branches or trim the entire tree? It is about 9 feet tall and 8 feet wide.

Persian Limes

I have a big Persian lime tree that is packed with hard, dry limes that do not mature. We topped off the tree last year. We had a hard winter in north Florida. I fertilize as directed with a fruit tree fertilizer. What am I doing wrong?

What Kind of Fertilizer Do I Use

I have a 3 year old lime tree (Persian). What kind of fertilizer do I need? I only get a few flowers and maybe 1 or 2 fruit a year. The tree is about 8 feet tall. I’m in Texas and we have had an exceptionally hot and dry weather for two months, 100 degrees average and very limited rain. I water my tree every day.

Lime trees usually require a nitrogen-rich fertilizer, with more phosphorus early on (prior to blooming). This article has information on how to fertilize your tree: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/citrus/fertilizing-citrus-trees-best-practices-for-citrus-fertilizing.htm
