I would love to have my very own Kaffir Lime..
Just wonder if anyone know if do cutting from the adult tree and then try to grow it. Will it work?
If it can, how do we cut it?

Hi April
I know obywan59 (Terry) has a Kaffir Lime. Perhaps PM him. He might have some good information.
Good luck!

I have 3 citrus trees (ponderosa lemon, pink eureka lemon and key lime)...I've read that trying to grow citrus from seeds is difficult because the fruit doesn't come true to the mother plant (meaning you might not get a kaffir lime when planting a kaffir lime seed) and seedlings take about 7 years to bear fruit...Many Florida gardeners get grafted trees, which fruit much sooner 1-2 years and are true to the mother plant.
Hoe that helps.

Hi, you can also do air -layering, it will take a couple of months to root,but it's a clone exactly as the original. Sergio
