Araucaria cunninghamii 'Bonsai'

Hoop Pine

One of the best houseplants and also one of the least known about. A cousin of the equally interesting monkey puzzle the Hoop Pine is a great indoor conifer.
The needles (can be a little sharp when older) are a wonderful green/blue colour with the new growth ranging from blues to browns. The trunk is a warm red colour with shinny almost birch like bark.

Very very easy! we have had one at the nursery for four years now (2016) and it has had everything thrown at it - cold, hot, drought, bright light and deep shade and has not shown any sign of distress at all!

Not the cheapest plant but fantastic value.
