Olive Tree

$25

Olive Tree, known by the botanical name Olea europaea, meaning "European olive", is an ancient plant. Archeologists who have found olive pits and traces of olive oil in pottery shards estimate we’ve been cultivating them for 6,000 to 8,000 years.

They love as much sun as possible. The best spot for them is where they can see the sun during the majority of the day.
When outdoor, keep them somewhere get the most amount of sun. When indoor, the minimum light requirement for them is 0 - 3 feet away from the nearest light source. A good bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window. During the warm months, they should be placed outdoors.
They need to be watered when the first 1 - 2 inches of soil is dry. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you do the watering. Make sure don't let the soil dry out completely.
Olive trees, since they are native to the Mediterranean, are particularly suited to drier air (like the kind found in most homes), so they don’t need to be misted.
Make sure the soil don't dry out completely for too long. Feed the tree once a month in fall and winter with a balanced houseplant fertilizer. When spring returns, start feeding twice a month, or switch to a timed-release fertilizer.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
