What type of high light does the Norfolk island pine tree need?
Tree was purchased from IKEA and is in a Vienese apartment with a steady internal temperature of 22 degrees celsius. Its snowing outside. Branches are drooping. Website states high light - about 6000 foot candles. Does that mean UV light or can high source artificial light fix the problem. If so what wattage? Thankyou

Make sure that the branches do not touch the window. This cold could damage the tree. Generally, a sunny window will do just fine, such as a south facing window.
If you still need to find an alternative method of lighting... An LED, even a cheap panel will work here. 100 watts will be enough for a tree up to 3 feet tall to flourish.
