bottom branches of my Norfolk pine dropped off
All the bottom branches of my Norfolk pine dropped off. Can I plant it deeper in the pot? Or will that cause the stem to rot? We just moved into a house with strictly wood stove heat so our house gets really dry and hot. I think this is why all the lower branches fell off. They drooped and when I touched them they fell off. They didn't really feel dry just limp. I just got a humidifier I am going to set up by my Norfolk which I hope helps. Should I mist it on top of that? I have had this plant for six years and it seems to get less bushy as time goes on. How can I get it bushier? I looked at air layering but I think the stem is too thin. Everywhere says not to trim it back either. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
