So obviously you got one of those decorated "Christmas trees".
My daughter received one of those a few years ago and we still have it, so I'll tell you what I know:
Don't worry about the glitter, etc. just take any removable decorations off after the holidays. If you can, set the plant outside in spring for vacation until just before next fall frost, and most or all that stuff will weather off.
If you look close, you'll probably see that there are several plants jammed together in this pot. Ours had 4 or 5.
This means the soil will dry out quickly and need frequent watering. I found that it worked best to go by heft test -- water thoroughly and let excess water drain out. Do this couple more times until the soil is saturated, but don't let the pot sit in the extra water. Now pick up the pot with one (or two) hand and *FEEL* how heavy it is. THAT'S YOUR BENCHMARK. When the pot feels light when hefted (or if the plant falls over from being top-heavy
), water thoroughly again. Use de-chlorinated water (leave bucket of tap water overnight or 24 hrs to outgas) or filtered water.
Norfolk Island Pine tolerates low light, but it's better to grow it in somewhat better light. Otherwise, the internodes get elongated and gangly with weak growth. So I would recommend East or West window. Supplemental fluorescent light would be good too. So if you have a bright fluorescent desk or undercabinet light, you could fit it with daylight 5500-6500K bulb and leave it on for approx 16 hrs each day. If using compact fluorescent, get 26W.
This plant should be kept at 55Ã‚Â°F or higher and doesn't like low humidity -- so I found it best to set it on a riser (rocks, upside down plastic takeout tray or tuna cans, etc) inside a larger deep tray or a bucket. I let the excess water drain and sit in the bottom but not touching the plant's container, which evaporate to provide extra humidity. I also mist thoroughly with filtered water every morning.
It's early to talk about it, but when putting it outside, I choose a location under canopy of a tree where it gets some morning direct sun then dappled sun for the rest of the day. You'll probably need to Uppot to a larger container at that time.
