I have this indoor evergreen plant (I don't know its name) that was the
center plant in this picture
This pic was taken a few years ago when it was in pretty bad shape. Now
it's about double that size and relatively healthy but became root bound
in its pot. Today I transplanted it into its new, larger pot and I
screwed up and half of the root ball fell off. I should have been more
careful. Anyway, now that it is in a much larger pot with only half a
root ball, is there anything I should do to make sure this plant doesn't
go into shock and die on me? It looks fine now but I just did the
botched transplant operation a few hours ago.
The plant is Norfolk Island Pine (Araucaria heterophylla) and can be grown
from cuttings so the loss of some of the root ball should be tolerated.
http://www.floridata.com/ref/a/arau_het.cfm has a lot of info on maintaining
this plant and Google can bring lots more on care as a house plant.
HTH -_- how
no NEWS is good

Thanks a lot for that website; it was very informative. Unfortunately,
mother nature has been a real b*tch this spring here in Chicago and we're
getting low temps below 40 (including a frost in the suburbs on the frost
free date of May 15!). It was good to know that that plant can't deal
with sub 40 temps so I had to lug that 100+ pound planter inside.
