    Default Norfolk Island Pine Seedling

    A couple of months ago Norfolk Island Pine trees here in my neck of the jungle dropped their seeds so I collected several hundred of them. I cleared an area totally free of weeds and laid out several seeds. After about six weeks two by four leafed plants appeared and they didn't appear to be connected to a Norfolk seed so l wondered is it just another weed, an internet search for seedlings only showed 6" - 8" high young trees with nothing relating to when they first appear. So I let them grow and walla they have now revealed they are Norfolk pines. Just thought I'd post this if others had the same quandary as me.

    Here's an up-date on the progress of the two trees they are now approximately 200mm tall and they still have the initial four leaf's attached. From the hundreds of seeds that I collected and spread non have sprouted.

    Probably best to establish the seeds / trees in pots as in the ground they would be competing with other flora for nutrients .These are looking good.
