Can you grow Eucalyptus indoors? Yes you can! Eucalyptus trees are famous for their friendly relationship with koalas, one of the rare animals that can digest the plant leaves. The oil is toxic to ingest for most other animals (including humans!).
Eucalyptus Gunnii makes a stunning indoor plant. They have grey-green leaves which produce a distinctive aroma when crushed. It is native to Australia where they grow as a tree but some species are more like a shrub. This plant is considered evergreen, though it can lose its leaves.
PLANT CARE :
- They love living indoors in a well lit place. It doesn't appreciate shade. Some direct sunlight is good too.
- Water regularly from spring to fall. Water sparingly in winter. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
- Repot in spring every year.
- It prefers cool temperature over warm. In the winter the perfect temperature is between 7C and 18C degrees.
- Toxic to pets.
