Plant Care Guide

Full Sunlight


Blue Pines love full sun so place your tree in the sunniest window you can find, south or east facing is ideal.

Infrequent Watering


Blue pine trees are drought tolerant once you can establish them. To establish them, make sure to give them lots of water to help their roots grow in nicely. As house plants, Blue Pine Trees are easy to care for as they won’t need water frequently.



Soil that is well draining and not too moist helps your tree prosper. Blue pines can survive in wide ranges of pH levels but as per most pine trees, they thrive in slightly acidic soil. In the first year or two, applying an acid fertilizer may help if the tree is not developing properly but after that fertilizer is not necessary.

Above Average Humidity


Native to the Mediterranean, Blue Pine trees do well in a mildly warm and dry environment where temperatures are consistent and expectable. Your plant won't do well in a place that is very humid because it can lead to the plant developing fungal problems and rot. They are also sensitive to cold winters where they can be damaged by ice forming.
