Also known as the "Bullet Tree," the Black Olive has a classic tree structure and can be quite tall indoors (depending on its age). Suitable for large containers, or as the centerpiece of an expansive indoor display, Black Olive shows off attractive clusters of elliptical, leathery leaves. Sometimes this plant is grown as a bonsai, particularly dwarf and spiny varieties. Black Olive is not as prevalent as other indoor tropical trees and treelike plants such as Ficus or Dracaena because it's a little more challenging to reproduce this plant, it's typically not available in nurseries.
This Caribbean native loves lots of sun; the brighter the light, the better. Black Olive tolerates normal indoor humidity levels.
