Combine together equal parts of peat moss, loam and sand in a bucket. Split the growing media into individual three or four-inch plastic pots until filled.
Pack down the growing media until it's firm and well compressed in each of the three or four-inch pots. Place the pots into a watering tray, or any other container that can hold about one inch of water.
Pour water into the tray so the three or four-inch pots will absorb enough water to become well saturated. Drain out any remaining water after the pots have been moistened.
Poke one-half deep holes in the centre of each three or four-inch plastic pot. Drop into each hole, two to three of the Kaffir lime tree seeds. Then, sprinkle approximately one half inch of the growing media over the top of each of the holes.
Cover the pots with cling film forming a mini greenhouse environment.
