Fertlizer: Although neem is tough enough to survive in the most adverse of conditions and barren of soils, it is best to offer nourishment to your potted neem plant by spraying an organic fertilizer like liquid fish emulsion once a week.

Temperature: Neem is a hardy tree that can tolerate temperatures up to 120 F. (50 C.). However, extended cool weather with temperatures below 35 F. (5 C.) will cause the tree to drop its leaves. The tree won’t tolerate colder temperatures, wet climates or prolonged drought. That being said, if you can locate fresh neem tree seeds, you can grow a tree indoors in a pot filled with good quality, well-drained potting soil.

Pruning: Neem trees can grow to several feet high and it is good to prune the tips of the young plant for branching in all sides. This will restrict vertical growth and you will get a thicker, bushy neem tree.
