There's nothing like the smell of a freshly cut bunch of eucalyptus. You can put them in a vase for a simple, yet beautiful arrangement, bundle them with twine to hang in the shower, or dry and add a couple of sprigs to pampas grass for some added texture.

While you may run out to the grocery store or Trader Joe's to grab a bundle every couple of weeks, you can actually grow your own silver dollar eucalyptus at home to save a few bucks. While there are tons of types of eucalyptus out there, the silver dollar is probably one of the most common ones.

Indoors, plant the tree in moist, well-draining soil for best results. Inside, it'll only grow to be a couple of feet tall, but it can get rather bushy if you allow it to. It thrives in full sun, so be sure to set it in a south-facing window or somewhere outdoors where it can soak up the sun. Make sure your eucalyptus is planted in moist, well-draining soil. Depending on the size of your plant, make sure it's in a planter that's rather large. The plant grows quickly and doesn't like to have its roots disturbed, so it's best to go bigger to allow it to grow into the pot rather than outgrow it quickly. Keep the plant in a sunny spot indoors with moderate humidity for best results. Eucalyptus does prefer warmer temps, so be sure to move it away from places where it may catch a chill in cooler months.

Outdoors, plant seeds or starter plants a few feet apart so they won't crowd each other. There has to be plenty of space for the plants to spread out, and they should be in an area with a lot of sun. Well-draining soil is a must, too, however, the plant isn't too picky about the pH of the soil it's growing in.

Terracotta planter does not come with the plant. The plant arrives in plastic growers pot.
