The Olive Tree, aka Olea europaea, meaning "European olive", is an ancient plant. Archeologists have found olive pits and traces of olive oil in pottery shards dating back 6,000 to 8,000 years! Their delicate silvery-green leaves and pale stems add a beautiful statement to your home. Also, since they are native to the Mediterranean, they are well-adjusted to dry air.

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.

Pro tips

Make sure the soil doesn'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 slow-release fertilizer.

Care Guide

How to take care of Olive Tree

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.

They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

Their humidity requirement is low, so do not mist them or put them in a terrarium.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.

Introducing the Olive Tree, a symbol of peace and resilience that teaches us the importance of patience and the beauty of growth over time.

The Olive Tree, or Olea europaea, is an evergreen tree native to the Mediterranean region, known for its silvery-green, elongated leaves and the precious olives it produces. A symbol of peace and prosperity throughout history, the Olive Tree is a testament to the power of perseverance and the rewards that come with patience.

To help your Olive Tree flourish indoors, provide it with a bright, sunny spot and well-draining soil. This sun-loving tree thrives with ample light, reminding us of the importance of seeking out our own sources of light and nourishment for personal growth.

When it comes to watering, allow the top half of soil to dry out before providing a thorough soak. Be mindful of overwatering, as the Olive Tree prefers drier conditions, teaching us the value of moderation and balance in both plant care and life.

As your Olive Tree grows and matures, it may require occasional pruning to maintain its shape and encourage new growth. This act of mindful care serves as a reminder to tend to our own personal growth and development.

Welcome the Olive Tree into your home, and let it inspire you with its symbolism of peace, resilience, and the rewards of patience. It's not just a plant; it's a powerful reminder that, like the Olive Tree, we can grow stronger and more beautiful over time, fostering a spirit of harmony and tranquillity within ourselves and with those around us.
