Feel the holiday spirit with your very own live Christmas Tree! Norfolk Island Pine trees (Araucaria heterophylla) are actually tropical, making them a perfect fit for Indian homes. Even after the festive season passes, these plants make wonderful houseplants. The Christmas Tree delivered is between 2 to 3 feet in height.
Place in bright but indirect sunlight if available. This plant is best kept in a balcony corner, or indoors near a bright window. Ideally, your plant should receive about 3-6 hours of morning sunlight everyday and natural direct bright light for the rest of the day to grow well.
Aim to keep the soil lightly moist. You should be watering twice a week. Overwatering will end your plant quite quickly. It's best to ensure the top 2 inches of the soil have dried out before you water again.
How to Care for the Norfolk Island Pine Recap:
Bright Diffused Light: Thrives in medium to bright indirect light. Can benefit from a few hours of direct sun.

Warm Temperature: Warm temperatures are preferred. Not lower than 16°C.
Average Feeding: Light fertilization is required once a month from February to August with an organic fertilizer.
