Clove trees thrive in areas with semi-shade to full sun. They perform best in humid conditions with high rainfall. If you plan to grow them in containers, ensure the container is at least 50cm long and 50cm deep for the best results. Clove trees are not tolerant of temperatures lower than 10°C.
Clove trees can grow up to 20 meters tall with a trunk diameter of approximately 30cm when they reach maturity.
These trees prefer light, well-drained soil. They can tolerate acidic soil with a pH as low as 4.5, but avoiding waterlogging is crucial. Ensure that the soil provides good drainage to prevent root damage.
Clove trees thrive in moist soil, so watering them regularly is essential. However, it’s equally important to ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging.
