When growing citrus trees in containers it is recommended to use either a slow release fertilizer every two months or a liquid fertilizer every other week. Check what indoor fertilizers are available at your garden center. If possible, find one that also provides micronutrients iron, zinc, manganese, molybdenum, copper and boron. Follow directions on the container. Kaffir lime (Citrus hystrix) in its native habitat can grow to 6 - 30 feet, prefers fertile, well drained soils, but is a slow grower which it makes it more suitable to growing in containers.
