Spread: 1ft-3ft
Zone: 10-11

Care

General Maintenance: Repot every one to two years into a pot that is 2-3 inches larger.  Trim away any browning needles if neccessary.  

Temperature: Thrives in normal household temperatures, between 15º-26º Celsius.   Keep away from drafts and drastic temperature changes.  Cannot tolerate temperatures below 1º Celsius.

Light: Plenty of bright indirect light is ideal.  Direct sun can scorch the needles.

Watering: Norfolk like to be kept evenly moist, so you should water when the top 1-2 inches of the soil is dry to the touch.  Humidity is also important for this plant, so it's a good idea to use a pebble tray, humidifier, or mist your plant regularly. 

Soil: A mixture of sand. peat moss, and potting soil is best, to allow for proper drainage as well as enough support for the plant.

Fertilizer: Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 2-3 weeks during the spring and summer months.
