Norfolk Island Pine

$15

Norfolk Island Pine, aka Araucaria Heterophylla, is not a true pine but rather a tropical needled evergreen native to Norfolk Island in the Pacific Ocean. Their bright green needles can add a beautiful pop of colour to your home. A bonus with them is that they are a good alternative to a traditional cut Christmas tree, and you can have them all year round.

Although they prefer full sun whenever possible, Norfolk Island pines can also handle relatively long periods (months at a time) in lower light conditions.
It thrives in medium to bright light condition, but can tolerate low light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window.
They like the soil to dry out between watering. That usually takes about two weeks in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water like floppy, droop, or soft leaves.
They like high humidity, but will be fine in average home humidity condition. Give them a mist as often as you can, or place it near a humidifier if possible.
With less light, they need to be watered less and cut off fertilizer to avoid stretching. Keep them indoor during winter and move them outside when the temperature allows (above 60°F or 15°C).
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Concrete Planter is sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.

They will do well in medium light but will grow faster with brighter light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

With less light, they need to be watered less and only fertilize during the warmer months. Keep them indoor during winter and move them outside when the temperature allows (above 60°F or 15°C).

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
