Norfolk Pine That Got Too Dry

Anonymous added on January 14, 2014 | Answered

We received a Norfolk Pine as a gift during the holidays. Because of my busy schedule, I let it get too dry. The needles are very faded and the tips are brown. I have watered it and misted it. Is it too late to save it?

If the plant still seems too dry, soak the pot in a tub of water for an hour or so and then let the water drain away. This will rehydrate the soil to the center of the rootball, which should help. This article will help with continuing its care:
