China Doll Plant
Hi!! I'm the China Doll Plant. I may look like a dainty houseplant now, but I am actually a fast-growing and beautiful tree. But don't worry, I stay smaller when potted indoors. I'm very delicate, physically and mentally. My soft, glossy leaves make the perfect statement in your home. I like thing to go the way I plan and I don't like change, so I need someone who can be by my idea and help meet my needs.
Difficulty: moderate, has some needs
Light Needed: moderate, bright indirect light
Water: moderate, keep the soil lightly moist
This delicate looking plant is actually a tree that can grow up to 25'-30' outdoors! Indoors it will grow to about 4'-6' tall. The glossy, mid-green leaves are compact and shrubby.
Size: Medium (6”)
Where I’m From: Southern and Eastern Asia
Botanical Name: Radermachera sinica
Nicknames: China Doll Plant, Emerald Tree, Serpent Tree
Favorite Hangout Spots: Near a well-lit window

BIODEGRADABLE GROW POT
Our biodegradable grow pots are made of 50% sphagnum peat, wood fiber and lime to adjust the pH. The peat content provides a combination of superior root penetration, good drainage and aeration whilst the wood fibers strengthen the pot.
Designed for easy transplant. They are 100% compostable and approved for organic production. Simply place the entire biodegradable pot into your planter and the roots of your plant will soon grow through and decompose the pot.
ECO-FRIENDLY ROOT POUCH
Our recycled & semi-degradable eco-friendly fabric bags are made from a mix all natural fibers and recycled plastic water bottles saved from landfills. The breathable fabric allows for your plants to stay cool in the summer and provides good drainage to avoid overwatering. They provide a healthy environment for your plant to grow by pruning the roots and creating dense, healthy root structures.
These fabric bags are washable and recyclable. It will take 1-2 years for the bags to semi degrade. Use your fabric bag as a decorative planter and remove from the bag when it is time to repot. This planter is designed by Root Pouch.

Love my new baby! She’s gorgeous in my dining room and I can’t wait to get another for my office. ❤️❤️ Thank you!
Logistics: heat pack was extra useful since the shipping company had some issues. She arrived to central Indiana in winter without frozen roots!
It came in quickly and in good condition. I shipped it to New York and the packaging was great!
Thrilled about my China Doll Plant from 36vine. It arrived well-packaged, and so far it’s doing great in my not-experienced-with-plants hands.
