Olive trees (aka European Olive) come from the hot and dry climate of the Mediterranean region. Bringing this plant into your home, will give it that Mediterranean feel.

They feature slender gray/green leaves that have a shiny cast to them. The undersides of the leaves are furry in texture.

It will be happiest near a window that receives ample light, like a south facing window. Be sure to open the window from time to time so that the plant gets some fresh air.

You can bring your olive tree outside in the summertime. Be sure to bring inside once the temperature gets below 50 degrees.

Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry. Place in a well draining potting mix.
