Let the holiday spirit grow! Norfolk Island Pines feature feathery, pine needle-like leaves that work to purify the air all year long. The Norfolk Island Pine tree (Araucaria heterophylla) is great for decorating as a Christmas tree. Place the Norfolk Island Pine in a bright spot, but nor directly in sunlight. Water when the top inch of the soil is dry (about once a week) and be sure all excess water drains away. If the container does not have holes, use approximately half a cup of water, adjust as needed for your environment. Do not let the plant sit in water or overly soggy soil. The height at shipping is approximately 16-inches tall, measured from the bottom of the pot to the top of the plant. The Norfolk Island Pine ships in a festive, 6-inch diameter decorative wrap. The Norfolk Island Pine is a slow grower and is hardy in USDA Zone 9. Give it a boost during the warm months of Spring and Summer with a general-purpose fertilizer that is formulated for house plants. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer package for the best use. When the plant out grows the current container, it is time to repot. Plants are living things; each one is slightly different, so the plant you receive may vary from the photo.
