OLIVE TREE / OLEA EUROPEA

Common Name / Latin Name

ALUMINIUM PLANT/ PILEA CADIEREI

Olive trees are beautiful and versatile. They have an elegant and rustic appearance with silvery-green leaves that can complement any style of home or garden. Additionally, they can be grown indoors or outdoors, making them suitable for a wide range of living spaces. Overall, an olive tree gift can symbolize timeless beauty, meaningful traditions, and a connection to nature. Position - Olive trees thrive in bright, indirect sunlight. Place your indoor olive tree near a south-facing window or provide supplemental grow lights to ensure it receives around 6-8 hours of sunlight each day. Water - Water your olive tree thoroughly, allowing the top inch or two (2.5-5 cm) of soil to dry out between waterings. Avoid overwatering, as olive trees are susceptible to root rot. Check the soil moisture by inserting your finger into the soil, and only water if it feels dry. Tips - Olive trees thrive in well-draining soil. Use a potting mix specifically designed for woody plants or create a mix of equal parts potting soil, sand, and perlite.Feed your indoor olive tree with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Follow the instructions on the fertilizer package for proper dosage.To maintain a neat and compact shape, prune your olive tree in the early spring before new growth starts. Remove any dead or damaged branches and pinch off excessive growth to encourage bushiness. Safety - safe for pets and children to be around. CARE - EASY but Remember, while olive trees can be grown indoors, they naturally thrive in outdoor environments. Indoor olive trees may require some extra attention to meet their sunlight requirements, but with proper care, they can still bring the beauty of the Mediterranean indoors.
