Wal-Mart (as well as other stores, I'm sure) is selling these little
live trees decorated for the holidays. They do so every year. I know
that they're not really any standard type of "Christmas tree." They
sort of look almost like some sort of fern -- a little. No leaves.
They look more like they have "needles." Right now they're anywhere
from one to three feet high. I doubt that they get much bigger.
I'm wondering if any of you knows what these little trees are and what
kind of care they need.(I remember I had one years ago and killed it.)
Sorry I can't be more specific with the description.
Thanks in advance.
Does it look like these?
It's likely a Norfolk pine. They're very cute as tabletop 'Christmas'
trees. My little Walmart baby tree grew into a lovely houseplant sized
tree in a few years. My method of care for it can best be described as
benevolent neglect. It likes a bit of sun and I watered it every week
or so...when I remembered to.
Norfolk pines, in tropical to sub-tropical environments, can grow to
around 80 ft tall.
They're really cute trees...
