I bought a house in September 2020. A clean pallet for another 15 years as I’ve recently left my tropical garden in Brisbane and moved to Ipswich.

That's awesome! Did not know they produce seeds! How old is your plant?

@treefrog me neither. I thought they only get this big in rainforests. Full sun Brisbane outside dentist office.

#chinadoll took this away from so much sun. Will plant in shade. It gets beautiful deep emerald leaves. #evergreen

@kelsey92 This is an evergreen tree, native to the subtropical regions of China and Taiwan. They can grow in excess of 80-100 feet tall.

@kelsey92 it’s really pale here. Inside they like filtered light. This one will get to about 2m high in the ground. I just planted this am. Show when healthy again

@kelsey92 - You aren't wrong! These are sold as houseplants in the USA, usually growing to only about 4' when mature. I wonder if the encyclopedia link should be updated to reflect the size? @gardentagsplantsteam Thoughts?

@KariSamuel don’t think so. There’s no info there unless a member.

Thanks Sussanah, I appreciate your reply. Will you be expecting blooms from yours? It indicates that the ones kept as houseplants rarely bloom.
