Norfolk Island Pine Trees
Q.

Two Indoor Norfolk Pines behaving differently!

Zone Pakistan | m-imran added on September 5, 2015 | Answered

I have a couple of Norfolk Pines indoors. They are small, just couple of feet high. I water them on daily basis, though have never misted them. One of them is really fresh with lovely green branches, while the other one gets brown tips every now and then. The growth rate for both the Pines is the same. I wonder what could be causing brown tips in the second plant when both the plants are exactly in the same environment. Any hint on the cause and a possible remedy would be greatly appreciated.

You are likely watering your plants to much.

They should be watering when the top inch of soil is dry.
Misting once a week is probably adequate.
To much moisture can cause root rot and fungus issues.
