Plant Know-How: Araucaria heterophylla (aka the Norfolk Pine!)
HOW TO CARE FOR ARAUCARIA HETEROPHYLLA:
Light Requirements: If grown indoors place your Norfolk Pine somewhere it gets bright indirect light. When grown outdoors your plant will appreciate somewhere it gets full sun. If you're transitioning your Norfolk Pine from its indoor life as a Christmas tree to outdoor life be sure to slowly transition your plant from shade to full sun. Placing your plant directly in full sun after living indoors can cause sunburn and other damage to your plant.
Water Tips for Araucaria heterophylla: Allow your Norfolk Pine to go almost fully dry in-between watering. Your Norfolk Pine will appreciate some added humidity!
The Best Soil for Araucaria heterophylla: Norfolk Pines need very well draining soil to be their happiest. We recommend either our Folia Favorites Potting Mix or our Desert Potting Mix!
