Hi! Norfolk pines are a great indoor tree. I can't think of many pines that can survive inside for long but this plant can. Do you want to learn to recognize one? Read on to learn How To Identify Norfolk Pine Tree Indoor Plant Easy

Difficulty:
Easy

Instructions

    • 1
      First, understand that outdoors a Norfolk pine can grow a couple hundred feet tall. As an indoor plant though, you won't have to worry about that.

      Second, look at the plant. Is it only about 2 to 3 feet tall? If you answer 'yes', go to the next step. It could be an indoor Norfolk pine plant

      Third, don't get hung up on the shape. I've seen some bushy, like mine shown, and others with more space between the branches. I've seen some that are a bit more rounded (like mine, see picture above) and some that are Christmas tree shaped (that classic pine tree shape ). It all depends on how well you rotate your plant, prune it etc.... read on to the next step...

      Instead of concentrating on shape. Look closely at the branch. Is it flat with soft needles branching out densely along the branch? If yes, it probably is a Norfolk pine. Read on to next step.

      Look at the trunk. Is it spiny or thorny looking? An indoor Norfolk Pine Tree will have a trunk or trunks that are only about half to three quarter inch wide. They are characterized as being very spiny as pine needles grow directly out of the trunk.

      Finally, feel the needles. A healthy Norfolk Pine plant will have short and very soft needles.
