Norfolk Pine
I got this Norfolk Pine in a holiday tro from The Sill around November. The tips of the branches are turn gin brown. It is happening slowly, but it is spreading. It is kept in an East facing window that gets direct sunlight through the first part of the day, and indirect for most of the rest of the day. I have upped the watering a bit, but it hasn't changed. Any thoughts? Thank you!

    Ava Norfolk pines do turn brown in some areas! If the humidity is ok just prune the brown area. This is a normal thing with norfolk pines!

    Paris Lalicata Hey Emily! The crisping and browning of the leaves looks like a humidity issue. Since the Norfolk is a tropical pine it has high humidity requirements! You can prune any dead and crispy needles, and try to increase the humidity around the plant. You can do that by misting the plant heavily on a daily basis, keeping it the bathroom, or providing a humidifer nearby! Hope this helps :)

        Pei My Norfolk is struggling too. Has you showed signs of improvement yet?

          Emily I pruned it back, and I haven't noticed any new browning, but it has only been a week or so. I have been misting it heavily and using my humidifier more frequently. I will let you know if anything changes.
