Pruning question

8 years ago

I'm not new to gardening but I am new to container citrus. I just potted this lime (I think) into a larger pot with an olla. It just recently started showing signs of leaf miners. I was thinking about prunning it just below the lowest leaf showing mining but that would take off an upper branch. Should I prune higher to keep the branch? Would neem oil suffocate the miner? Thoughts on prunning? I am in a rental with limit yard space, hence the pot for a citrus in Florida. I wouldn't mind keeping it a manageable size since moving back to a zone 5 is a possability. (Could a tree survive a move like that, becoming an in house tree)?
