Lime Tree in Container

by Charlotte

(Thornless Mexican Lime Tree)

A friend of mine gave me a "Mexican Lime" tree. It's in a 12" tall pot.Plant looks healthy and is
4' tall.Would like to put it in a larger container.The largest pot I have is 18" tall and 25" wide.Would this size be good for its growth? It can get up to 12' tall.

Whats the best organic soil for it? Anything else to add to the soil to make it happy and healthy?

That container would be fine for a year or so. One must always remember that, with trees, the root system grows to be the approximate area taken by the branches, without pruning.
