The Olive Tree, scientifically known as Olea europaea, has a rich historical significance dating back thousands of years. Archaeological findings reveal that olive pits and traces of olive oil have been discovered in pottery shards originating from periods as far as 6,000 to 8,000 years ago. This ancient plant is defined by its delicate silvery-green leaves and pale stems, adding a striking feature to any living space. Being native to the Mediterranean region, the Olive Tree has naturally adapted to thrive in dry air conditions, making it a resilient and beautiful addition to your home.

The Benefits of Olive Tree

Aesthetic Appeal: With its elegant silhouette, delicate foliage, and pale stems, the Olive Tree adds a touch of timeless beauty to any indoor space, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal.

Air Purification: Like many houseplants, the Olive Tree contributes to cleaner indoor air by absorbing harmful toxins and pollutants, thus improving air quality and promoting a healthier living environment.

Stress Reduction: The presence of greenery, such as the Olive Tree, has been shown to have a calming effect on individuals, helping to reduce stress, anxiety, and promote relaxation in the home.

Cultural Significance: As a symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity in various cultures, the Olive Tree carries with it a sense of heritage and tradition, adding depth and meaning to your home decor.

Low Maintenance: Olive Trees are relatively low-maintenance plants, requiring minimal care and attention once established. With proper watering and occasional pruning, they can thrive in a variety of indoor settings.

Adaptability: Originating from the Mediterranean region, Olive Trees are well-adapted to dry, arid conditions, making them resilient and capable of thriving indoors with minimal humidity levels.

Invite the Olive Tree into your home and be inspired by its symbolism of peace, resilience, and the rewards of patience. More than just a plant, it serves as a powerful reminder that, like the Olive Tree, we can grow stronger and more beautiful over time. Let it cultivate a spirit of harmony and tranquility within ourselves and with others.

Sun: Direct

Olive Trees thrive in full sunlight, so it's best to place them in a location where they can receive at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight each day. Position them near a south-facing window or outdoors in a sunny spot to provide ample sunlight.

Light: Bright

In addition to direct sunlight, Olive Trees also appreciate bright, indirect light when grown indoors. If placed outdoors, ensure they receive sufficient natural light throughout the day to support healthy growth.

Water: When half dry

Olive Trees prefer well-draining soil and do not like to sit in waterlogged conditions. Allow the soil to dry out slightly between watering sessions, then water thoroughly until water begins to drain from the bottom of the pot. During the winter months or when the tree is dormant, reduce watering frequency to prevent root rot.

Humidity: Low

While Olive Trees can tolerate a wide range of humidity levels, they generally prefer moderate humidity. If you live in a dry climate or have indoor heating that reduces humidity levels, consider misting the leaves occasionally or using a humidifier to increase moisture in the air around the plant.

Pet Friendly: Caution

Olive Tree 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.

Pro Tip

To promote healthy growth and encourage fruit production, consider fertilizing your Olive Tree during the growing season. Use a balanced fertilizer formulated specifically for fruit trees, and apply it according to the manufacturer's instructions. Fertilize once a month from spring to early fall, then reduce frequency during the winter months when the tree is dormant.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
