Norfolk Pine

I had to trim off most of the brown, dead limbs. Do these bottom branches grow or replace themselves, or should I discard the plant? The tree is about 6 feet tall with green branches on the very top only.

The dead branches will not grow back, since Norfolk pine only grows from the top. You may still be able to keep the plant alive- check to make sure it is not overwatered or underwatered, and that it has enough humidity and light, as explained here:


If you don’t like the plant’s appearance without the lower branches, you are better off discarding it and starting with a new plant.
