: I crushed a few fresh henna leaves that had fallen off the little
: plants with some lime juice but there was no red dye.
: Does henna have to mature before the dye is produced?

I don't recall where I heard this, but I believe the plant needs to
be at least 3 years old before it produces dye. My oldest plants are
only a year old so I haven't tried anything with them yet.
