Hello all; I\'m looking for advice on an Araucaria tree my family has as an indoor plant. It was sold as a Norfolk Island pine tree (no scientific name) at a local grocery store during the winter holiday season back in 2006. I figure it\'s probably A. columnaris, A. heterophylla, or a hybrid.

1. What size pot should I get for it? It\'s grown quite a bit since 2006... It\'s now 50 inches tall and 58 inches across at the widest point. I\'m not sure how tall I should expect it to get indoors. As long as it stays small enough to fit out the door when I move from this house I\'m fine to let it grow bigger. I am in USDA grow zone 6b so the winters are too cold for this to ever be an outdoor tree.

2. Do I need to be careful about the soil I use? So far this has been pretty low maintenance. We used whatever soil it was sold with plus some standard bagged potting soil (can\'t remember exactly what it was).

Overwhelmed? There's a lot to see here. Try starting at our homepage.
