Plant Bio

Araucaria heterophylla

Native to Norfolk Island off the coast of Australia, this tropical evergreen conifer was first discovered by Western horticulture in 1774. It has since become a favorite living Christmas tree used in holiday décor. Outdoors in its native habitat, it can reach 200 feet tall or more, but stays much more compact when grown indoors. It’s hardy outdoors only in USDA Zones 10-11, so in most areas it’s best grown as a houseplant. In subtropical areas where it can grow outdoors all year long, it’s susceptible to lightning strikes and wind damage, so it’s best to avoid planting it near homes or other buildings.

Norfolk Island Pine grows best in bright light, but tolerates lower light levels. It prefers average household temperatures and average to above-average relative humidity levels (40 percent or more is ideal). Water as the top couple of inches so of the potting mix dries to the touch. Avoid letting it dry out and keep it away from hot or cold drafts, as these conditions can make the needles go brown and crispy dry.

Note: This plant may have some natural degree of toxicity and may cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Additionally, exposure to the sap of this plant may cause discomfort to individuals with a sensitivity to it upon contact. Grown for ornamental purposes and not intended for human or animal consumption.
