Norfolk Island PineRegular price $24.00
Norfolk Island pine trees (Araucaria heterophylla) are commonly used as those cute little houseplant Christmas trees.
While they may share the name and even resemble a pine tree, they are not true pines at all, nor are they as hardy as the standard pine tree that people are accustomed to. In terms of proper Norfolk pine tree care, they are more like a gardenia or orchid than a pine tree.
First thing to keep in mind with the care of Norfolk pines is that they are not cold hardy. They are a tropical plant and cannot tolerate temperatures below 35 degrees.
The second thing to understand about indoor Norfolk pine care is that, being a tropical plant, they need high humidity. Make sure to meet these need and it’ll thrive all year long!
