'Dora' the Spiny Black Olive

$ 110.00

 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 5-8 days, or when my pot feels about 1/2 lighter. For good air circulation, put me in a room with a fan or open window.

Includes care instructions. Plate sold separately.
