Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree Instructions & Care

General Mail Order Instructions: Carefully unpack your plants as soon as possible. Remove moss from around the roots before planting. Shipping stress may cause some plants to arrive with a varying amount of dry, drooping or yellow leaves and or branches. Stressed plants can usually benefit from the removal of these problem areas. Do not plant your plants directly into the ground. A plastic pot slightly larger than the diameter of the root ball with large drainage holes is ideal. Do not use clay pots. A layer of river rock or pebbles at the bottom of the pot can be beneficial for improving drainage. Plant at the same root level with a well draining mix utilizing a combination of any of the following mediums, peat moss, perlite, coco coir, vermiculite, pine bark, sand. Do not use "native" or "garden" soil. Water your plants and place them in bright indirect light away from full sun and drying winds. In most cases your plants will benefit from providing an environment of enhanced humidity until root function has normalized, typically from a few days to as much as 1 or 2 months. Once new growth appears the plants may be stepped up to a larger pot or planted in the ground. At this point you can gradually move your plants into an appropriate amount of sunlight and fertilization may begin using a balanced slow release fertilizer.

Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree Instructions & Care

Light - Choose a sunny location with plenty of room for your tree to develop. Good good air circulation is important but avoid constant heavy winds until it is a bit larger or staked properly.  

Water - Rainbow Eucalyptus need to stay well-watered at all times, especially when young and/or in pots. 

Soil -  This tree will grow well in rich, medium to wet soils and does not seem to be picky about soil pH.

Container Growing - If growing in a container the container should be large enough to accommodate the tree, about 2 feet in diameter, and allow for adequate drainage. Eucalyptus trees cannot take temperatures below 50 F. (10 C.) for extended periods; therefore, it’s recommended that they be grown indoors in cold climates, spending summers outside whenever warm enough. Other areas can either overwinter them indoors or provide suitable winter protection.

Comments: Rainbow Eucalyptus will drop and regrow many leaves while they are young. You may even see entire branches drop and then another grow nearby. It is very common for Rainbows to have bright red to pink new leaves, along with some reddish coloration on older leaves.
