    • Climate Control: Needs to be protected from strong winds or temperatures under 40 degrees F.
    • Light: We recommend the tree be kept outdoors for full sunlight. If is kept indoors, we recommend a full-spectrum grow light, window light will not suffice as this is a tropical tree. If the tree is kept indoors without a full spectrum grow light, we cannot say with confidence that the tree will survive or thrive.
    • Nutrition: To thrive, your tree needs proper fertilizer three times yearly.
    • Your tree can spend its life in a pot. We do NOT recommend planting the tree in the ground if there are any freezing temperatures unless you live in USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 9a, 9b or 10a. Even then your tree must be protected from temperatures below freezing.
