You might want to consider Norfolk Island pine as your next living Christmas tree and turn it into a house plant after the Holiday season. I love Norfolk Island Pine or Araucaria heterophylla as they make a great house plant and can be turned into a little Christmas tree. There are a few tricks to growing it for maximum success so read my Norfolk Island Pine management feature.
Here are several quotes from the experts:
Extension Nursery Specialist Dr. Leonard Perry says: "If you want to invest in a houseplant with a future, buy a Norfolk Island pine. It requires minimal care, and because it grows slowly will remain small and attractive for many years indoors."
Horticulturist Rosie Lerner says: "The Norfolk Island pine has grown in popularity as a live indoor Christmas tree. Its lush green twigs of soft needles provide a lovely backdrop for festive holiday ornaments."
