I’m Dora, the 'Black Olive' or the 'Dwarf Geometry Tree', and native to the Florida Keys, Cuba and the Caribbean. I am not the same as a European black olive, but I do have compact leaves on spiny geometric branches and get tiny cream colored flowers. In the wild, I can grow to 40-50 feet tall! I will drop some leaves, though not all, throughout the year. The leaves can turn to red or orange before dropping and new growth regenerates quickly.
I like direct to indirect bright natural light. Keep me in steady temperatures above 50˚F all year. To water, submerge 3/4 of my pot in water for 15 minutes, and let me drain thoroughly. Submerge about once every 5 days, or more often when very hot or dry. In winter, I go semi-dormant and like some cooler temperatures, meaning don't set me next to a heater! Add a humidifier to the room for good practices.
