Podocarpus macrophyllus 10"
Podocarpus is a genus of conifers with flattened elongated leaves. They can make for a great houseplant that has a lot of character due to its fluttering and shagginess of the leaves. The Podocarpus macrophyllus, commonly referred to as the "Buddhist Pine", has scrappy green leaves with a central midrib. Highly regarded as a feng shui tree in Hong Kong.

Podocarpus are unique houseplants as they lend a very “tree-like” appearance with their fine leaves, and network of branches..
Light: Full sun to dappled sun is the best exposure to meet the demands of these plants.
Water: While Podocarpus have some drought tolerance, their foliage will look its best and freshest with fairly even watering. You can let the soil feel dry just a bit below the surface. Always avoid any excess or standing water.
Environment: A humid cushion is great for these plants - avoid any standing water on the leaves.
Toxicity: Reported to be toxic if ingested.
- Rinsing leaves regularly will keep them clean and healthy.
*When planting in a pot without a drainage hole, avoid over watering by estimating 25% of the container’s overall volume, with appropriate drainage materials incorporated when planting. Printable Care Sheet
