Green Tea Plant

$15

Green Tea Plant, aka Camellia Sinensis, is the source for many of the teas we regularly drink like green, white, black and oolong varieties. The plant produces fragrant glossy leaves and delicate white blooms in the autumn. It is an evergreen shrub native to China and makes an excellent container grown tea plant.

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.
They will thrive in bright light, but also can tolerate medium light. A good place in your home would be anywhere in a room that has a regular size window between the window and the middle of the room. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
Allow the top quarter of the soil to dry before watering again. This usually takes about 3 - 4 days in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions.
They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier! Excess humidity combined with heavy soils can cause fungal diseases.
Container grown tea plants should be planted in a pot with drainage holes. Pay close attention to tea plants grown in containers, and never allow the soil to become completely dry. Fertilize tea plants every two months when they are actively growing in spring and summer.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
