As the title suggests I need to know what pot would be suitable for a kaffir lime seedling as I'll be moving house soon and have a possible 15 seedlings to move or will they be alright in the tray they are in which is 6 x 8 x 1.5 deep.

Obviously I'm looking for a minimum without harming them.

RE: What pot?

depending on how old they are,im assuming not very old, they would be just fine in a 6"(not sure what cm that is) for a good year or so.


RE: What pot?

They're just sprouts atm just for a few weeks really until I'm moved in I wouldn't think they'll get above a few inches high.

RE: What pot?

they should be ok for a bit. I germinated some grapefruit seeds a few months back and when I thinned them after the second set of leaves the roots where already about 3 inches long. You should transplant them right after that to be sure the roots dont get to tangled.


RE: What pot?

Ok Mike thanks.

I'll get some pics up when they're up and about too 
