I’m Gilly, the Brazilian Rain Tree, and native to the Brazil rainforests. I am a hardwood tree known for my small leaves that usually close up at night, or when agitated. I also have fragrant puffy flowers when older. I represent transformation and life cycles, much like the rainforest itself. Keep me in a location that has partial or full sun a few hours a day.
To water, submerge my pot in water up to the rim for 15 minutes and then let me drain thoroughly. Do this about once every 7 days, or when my pot feels about 1/2 lighter. I never like to dry out completely. I like temperatures between 45-80˚F all year and humidity in winter. On nice days you can even take me outside, where I’d love to feel the wind in my branches.
