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 too much. I get fragrant, puffy flowers when I'm older. I am a symbol of 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. I don't suffer from overwatering, so when in doubt, give me a soak.
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 5-7 days, and more often when very hot or dry. I like temperatures between 50-80˚F all year and humidity in winter. On nice days you can even take me outside, where I’d love to feel the wind through my leaves.
