Growing my Key limes
This past friday, I planted four Key Lime seeds into a 6" plastic container, by filling the container with Miracle Gro generic potting soil and covering them with an inch of soil. I left it at my house while I go on a road trip, asking my friend to water it. I basically told him to make sure the soil was moist, not soggy and that he let it dry a bit. Hopefully they will sprout, but I have a few questions:
For those of you who have successfully grown key lime from seed, how long did it take to fruit, and does ethylene gas help them set flower? Its going to be a potted overwinter in house type plant. And do they form naturally into a bush? (more desirable than tree) Or will I have to prune it into a bush?
