Light: Grow Norfolk Island Pine in medium or bright light. It excels in bright spots. If your Norfolk Island Pine doesn’t get enough light, the leaves will grow longer (stretching toward light); bright light results in shorter leaves.
Water: Norfolk Island Pine likes regular watering. It hates overly moist or soggy soil. In fact, most times when a Norfolk Island Pine dies, it is due to overwatering. The frequency of watering will depend on your Norfolk Island Pine’s pot size, how much light it gets, and the indoor temperature of your home. Never allow the plant’s base to sit in moist or soggy soil.
Feeding: Fertilize Norfolk Island Pine a few times a year, in spring and summer, to keep it healthy. Use a general-purpose fertilizer labeled for houseplant use. Follow the directions on the fertilizer packaging. Don’t over feed the Norfolk Island Pine.
Pruning/Shaping: Norfolk Island Pine typically doesn’t require pruning or shaping to keep its good looks. Remove yellow or faded leaves by clipping them off at the base of the stem.
Repotting: : Repot your Norfolk Island Pine when it becomes root bound. (A houseplant is root bound when roots appear in the soil or begin to escape through drain holes in the pot bottom.) A well-draining potting soil mixture for is recommended when repotting. Never repot houseplants using soil from your yard.
