    Location

    Put the Norfolk Island pine in a bright spot, but not in full sunlight. The plant prefers a room that is not too warm. Between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius is perfect. Like many plants, the Norfolk Island pine does not love a draughty or cold area. Do not place it near an open window. Is your pine looking a little shabby? If so, adjust how often you water it and place it in a brighter location.

    Caring for your Norfolk Island pine
    • Water: the Norfolk Island pine requires little water. Only water the plant when the soil feels dry. The plant would rather be dry than wet. Yellow needles mean too much water, or too little light. Are the branches at the top of the pine drying out and dying? If so, give the plant more water. During the winter, the plant requires less water. You can spray the plant every once in a while with a mister. This removes dirt and dust from the plant and keeps it looking fresh.
    • Pruning: the Norfolk Island pine can easily be pruned to the desired shape. Grey branches should also be clipped: it is the plant’s natural way of discarding its needles.
    • Fertiliser: since Norfolk Island pines grow slowly by nature, there is little need to fertilise it.
