Fingerlime – New Growth!

24 Mar

Finally my sad little fingerlime tree is doing something besides losing leaves.

It started dropping a few leaves a couple of months ago so I repotted it to a terracotta pot as I was probably getting too wet in a plastic one. It still dropped more leaves but check these little babies out. I’m so excited! I think I saw evidence of more new growth elsewhere on the plant but these babies are the biggest ones so far. They all happen to be growing right by the grafted point. I’d rather my plant get bushier rather than taller so that is good news.

March 2011 Australian Finger lime. Not looking too good after dropping leaves. i hope that is normal.
