Meet the Norfolk Island Pine (Araucaria heterophylla), a stunning indoor plant not actually a pine, but related to the monkey puzzle tree. It grows to 3-8 feet indoors, bringing a majestic touch to your space.

With its straight trunk and symmetrical branches, the Norfolk Island Pine is an elegant addition to any room. Its short, inward-curving needles add a unique texture, perfect for enhancing home decor.

The Plant's Symmetrical Beauty

Thriving in bright, indirect light, place your Norfolk Island Pine near a south-facing window. Water every two weeks or when the top inch of soil feels dry, and mist regularly to maintain humidity.

Light and Watering Needs

Use a weak liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during growing seasons. Pot in a sandy, slightly acidic mix, repotting only when root-bound. Ensure good drainage to prevent waterlogging.

Fertilizing and Potting Tips

Propagate through seed germination, a rewarding process for expanding your collection. Norfolk Island Pines grow slowly, reaching 6 feet or more over years, requiring regular fertilization and ample sunlight.
