Norfolk Island Pine

Plant Care Instructions*

Plant Care*:

Temperature
House temperatures of 55-85 are best. Warmer is ok, but Norfolk Island Pines are tropical and can not tolerate freezing weather.

Light
Being a tropical pine tree, Norfolk Island Pines prefer bright light to full sun.

Watering
They tend to be thirsty plants. Be sure to keep the soil moist, but not soggy, and be cautious to not let it dry out.

Soil
A fast draining soil mix is best to use. A mix of organic potting mix, vermiculite and peat, along with coconut coir is a possibility.

Fertilizer
Fertilize every couple of weeks with a balanced fertilizer.

Re-Potting
Re-pot when needed. Norfolk Island Pines do not like to have their roots disturbed, so use caution and repot every 2 or 3 years, unless it has grown out of its pot faster.

Humidity
These need high humidity and plenty of gentle misting.

* Standard care recommendations - you may need to adjust based on your home or office environment.
