Araucaria heterophylla is known by many names. As a norfolk pine or Andes pine it reaches a height from up to 60 m in the wild. Indoor, on the other hand, the tree with the lively branches only reaches about 1,80 m. The pine has its origin in the Australian Norfolk Island and is relatively one, which doesn´t need much care.
Pot size: 14 cm
Plant size: 40 cm (without the pot)
The pine, Araucaria heterophylla, does not like direct sunlight, but tolerates a bit of morning and evening sun. Otherwise, a shaded site with enough space is very good. It should be quite bright, because the pine has only something against direct sunlight, it does not need shadow though. It is a problem when the room is heated all year.
Bright, indirect light
The root bale shouldn´t ever dry out, but there should also be no waterlogging
Araucaria heterophylla enters the winter phase between late September and early October. Now the conifers should be brought into a room which is not heated in the winter. If it is in a normally heated room, the plant has to move. A lightly heated entrance hall, on the other hand, is in order, and the unheated winter garden is also a good place for the cold months.
