General Info

Often called a Buddhist Pine, the Podocarpus is native to tropical mountain regions where it can grow up to 130 feet tall

It has lanceolate leaves which resemble the needles of a yew

The Podocarpus is said to be a harbinger of good fortune, and is known as a 'temple tree' in Japan due to its use in ancient gardens


Your Podocarpus should never be left to dry out completely

When the soil is starting to dry is the best time to give it a thorough drink, allowing water to run through the bottom of the pot

A high draining soil will help to prevent root rot, and lower the risk for overwatering

Light Requirements

Podocarpus enjoy lots of direct sunlight, but will want to be shaded during the hottest parts of the day

Providing placement in a South or East facing window will give the best light conditions

Podocarpus can be tolerant to lower more indirect light conditions, but lots of sunlight is ideal
