How do you take care of an Olive tree?

The best location

The Olive Tree is common in Mediterranean areas such as Spain and Portugal. The plant is certainly used to a lot of sunshine. You can put the Olive Tree nice and close to the window. The Olive Tree makes you most happy with a window facing south. In the summer you can also put the Olive Tree outside. Make it happy! As soon as the leaves fall out or turn yellow, the plant gets too little light and too much water. For the Olive Tree the following applies: the more light, the better.

Watering the Olive Tree

In summer it is important to water an olive tree two to three times a week. Especially when the plant is outside in full sunlight to enjoy. In winter, water once a week is enough. Make sure that you don’t give too much water then root rot can occur.

Plant nutrition

Plant nutrition is not necessary for the Olive Tree. Doesn’t your plant need a boost? Then you can feed it once a month from spring until the end of summer. Never overfeed, as this can damage the plant.

Repotting

Repotting the olive tree is certainly not necessary every year. Repotting every 2 to 3 years is more than enough. We recommend using a flowerpot that is at least 20% larger than its previous one. Are you going to repot the olive tree? The best period is spring. In addition to a larger flowerpot, use fresh potting soil and hydro grains for the bottom of the pot.

Air purifying function

No, an Olive Tree certainly has no air-purifying function.

Is the Olive Tree poisonous?

Both the trunk and fruits of the olive tree are not poisonous. Although it is possible that once you buy the plant, it is chemically sprayed. When chemically sprayed, the Olive Tree can be poisonous. So pay attention!

Diseases and peculiarities

In addition to being an easy houseplant, the Olive Tree is also an easy prey. Both woolly and scale insects are no strangers to the Olive Tree. If the plant suffers from vermin, you can often recognize this by the white plucks on the plant. In case of pests or diseases you can use pesticides.
