What’s the history of the Black Olive Trees?
Native to most of the Caribbean and Central America, black olive trees were primarily used as a source for lumber. This was because their trunks are heavy and dense.
According to Greek tradition, you plant an olive tree when a child is born. When the child is 6 years old, the olive tree gives its first fruit. Because they’re expected to live for 300-600 years, they are also seen as a symbol of evolution and continuity.
History actually says that olive trees were first spotted in Syria. But, Greece brought it to the Mediterranean area. Then, it spread to Australia and America.
Greek philosophers even studied the medicinal properties of the olive tree, claiming that there were more than 60 olive treatments possible. Understanding its value, Romans started trading in olive trees more frequently. In fact, the olive oil trade helped reinforce several local economies. In addition to this, there was also a spike in soap production.

How to Care for Your Faux Olive Trees
Although they require almost zero maintenance, these indoor plants will collect dust after some point in time.
When that happens, you can try the following:
Use a feather duster:
Dust your artificial plants with feather dust at least once a week. When you do it, ensure you start from the top section and gradually move to the bottom. You can even use a paintbrush to do this.
Get a vacuum cleaner
Yup, cleaning your artificial plants is possible with a vacuum cleaner. Just remember to not overdo it and damage the plants though.
Clean with a damp cloth
Dip your cloth in cold water and dab it all over your plant. Then, remove the water stains in order to prevent your plants from getting limp. This method is a great way to get rid of any dust and stains.
Make a plant cleaner
If your faux plants have been uncleaned for long, the above might not help much. In that case, you can make your own plant cleaner.
All you need to do is mix white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Then, test it on a leaf to check if the colors bleed. Once you know everything is fine, you can spray all over your plant.
