Clove trees require a warm, tropical climate with an average rainfall of at least 1500 mm per year.
Clove trees are very susceptible to stress.
Areas that undergo a dry season are good for flowering but the tree must be planted in an area with deep, fertile soil to limit water stress.
Clove trees grow optimally at temperatures between 16°C and 27°C (65–80°F) in rich loamy, well draining soil.
