hello all, recently a new whole earth store opened near me so naturally I went to buy any nice plants they had and of course I had to impulsively bought an olive tree, I have in good lighting and I think I'm watering it properly and its looking good for now I just don't want it to die due to my impulsive nature.... any tips on keeping it alive and well in NJ?

Move to the Mediterranean? If that's out of the question, a south facing window with full sun. Don't water until the top inch of soil is dry.

You'll want to leave it potted. So you can move it, preferably to the garage, over winter.
It will require a few small drinks over winter, so check soil periodically.
Good luck 👍😀
