The indoor tree that looks just like a tree. You need high ceilings, but what a statement if you do.

Bucida buceras is known by a variety of names, including bullet tree, black olive tree, gregorywood (or gregory wood), Antigua whitewood, and Oxhorn bucida.

It is native to Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and northern South America, and is commonly found in coastal swamps and wet inland forests in low elevations.

The Bucida buceras is a tropical tree with a native appearance. This unique characteristic makes the tree very popular in many plantscaping projects because it brings the outdoor atmosphere inside.

It requires high sunlight and rich, moist, well drained soil. This tree takes time to situate and will drop leaves.
