I have a curry plant that is about a year old. I had transplanted it shortly after I got it into a 18" diameter pot outdoors. It is healthy but only about two feet. I live in the canyons of Malibu where it gets enough sun. I just wish it would grow faster and bigger. I have seen pictures of one that grew 9' in two years in Arizona! I fertilize it once a month with an all purpose liquid fertilizer that I dilute with water. Would alfalfa tea that is often mentioned as a rose food help jumpstart this plant? What else should I be doing? Someone said it is an acid loving plant. What does that mean and what can I feed it with to provide acidity? Thanks.
