A good Norfolk island pine potting soil can be made by mixing 1 part sand, 1 part peat moss, and 1 part good-quality potting soil. Depending how big the plant has grown, the new pot could have about 3x the volume of the original. To correct the light green needles, fertilize as described in the following article and make sure the plant is getting enough light.
