Killing plants so you don't have to

Wollemi Pine





Thanks for the photo, it’s a beautiful plant

Wollemi pine is a very old plant, it was here on earth when the dinosaurs were still roaming the place. It was thought to be extinct but was found alive in the Wollemi National Park near Sydney.

The more gardeners grow it the better chance we have to protect this plant against extinction.

In the wild it will grow 40′. But it does exceptionally well as a house plant.

Soak soil completely when the top 2″ of soil is dry in the pot. The less light it has the less water it needs. Water it as you would a cactus.

Place in a bright window. If you are going to put it in a window with direct sun, slowly acclimate it to the sun.

It can handle cool and hot temperatures comfortably.
