Care

General Maintenance: Repot roughly once a year to a slightly larger pot, with fresh soil.  However, do not increase pot size too much, or growth with slow significantly.  Rotate pot every 1-2 weeks to encourage even growth on all sides.

Temperature: Podocarpus prefer cool temperatures between 10-24 ?.  They enjoy a medium humidity level, so if your home is quite dry you may want to add a humidifier or pebble tray. 

Light: Very bright indirect light is most ideal, but they can tolerate some direct sun, and even some shade.

Watering: Keep soil evenly moist, but not soggy.  Allow the top two inches of soil to dry out between waterings.

Soil: Well draining soil is essential to avoid potential root rot.

Fertilizer: Feed every two to three weeks during the spring and summer with a fertilizer suitable for acid-loving plants
