Norfolk Island Pine-will have to replicate this

While shopping in Nesting On Main in Concord, Mass., I focused in on this charming houseplant.  There were several of them scattered around the store and I had to find out what they were.  Never heard of Norfolk Island Pine but new I had to replicate this arrangement.  I even love how the plant is potted in an urn.  I don't think the urn was even an expensive one.  Wasn't very heavy or anything (you know one of those fake ones).  I am just smitten with this plant.  Too bad they weren't for sale...just a decoration for the store.



I just love how feathery and whimsical it looks.   
I am on the look out now for a pot or urn to plant one in.

This is not a very good picture, but this pine was larger that the rest.  I would love to place one in my kitchen by my sliding glass doors.
The only problem with a houseplant is when you go away...  We are renting a house up in Maine on the ocean in a few weeks and I don't want to buy a houseplant before that.   I usually kill my plants and that combined with leaving it for a week without water would surely do it in.  If you would like more info. on the Norfolk Island Pine go here.

I've never heard of that plant either! It has such wonderful texture, and I agree the urn is such a neat way to plant it. I need to make it out to that store!

Oooh, Nesting on Main - love that shop. I always worry the're gonna think I'm nuts when I'm in that store because of my extended browsing.
That pine is beautiful, and I like the urn too.

I'm afraid it wouldn't be a good purchase here either. I most often kill my indoor plants, and it looks like this one has some requirements that I wouldn't be able to meet. Estimated time of survival here - 3 weeks.

I have a norfolk pine that i bought one year as my Christmas tree. It was perfect. Now it is out on my deck, in the shade, and enjoying being out of the house....

I love the texture as well. I have a total black thumb so I'm certain it would be dead in a few short weeks, but it is pretty!

My grandparents used to have these kind of plans all over their house in Maine- I love them!
