Soil may need to be amended with grit or compost to ensure good drainage. Water well during the first year of growth.
Lightly prune as a young tree in late spring or early winter to maintain an attractive and pleasing shape.
It is possible to propagate Araucaria araucana by taking cuttings of vertical shoot tips during the middle of summer, or by root in a cold frame. It is important to highlight that if cuttings are taken from the horizontal side branches, it is unlikely this will form an upright tree. Ripe seeds sown in a seed bed are also a key method of propagation for this species.
