Fertiliser for Potted Finger Lime

    2 responses

My young potted Rick's Red finger lime is doing well with several small fruit growing after first bloom. I have used compost top ups but wondered what fertiliser to use and how often (as it is a native).

I've read conflicting things about finger limes. Some things seem to suggest you should use low phosphorous fertiliser, while other things have said just treat them like other citrus. I think the natives that are genuinely sensitive to phosphorus are the proteaceae, but then a lot of other natives get tarred with the same brush. I think they are native to SE Qld and Nth NSW rainforests, which would have pretty rich soil. I've used Powerfeed and Seasol on mine, and it seems to be going well so far.
