Answer: This is typical for this plant, especially in the winter. Usually the needles brown and drop from the bottom up. The air inside our homes is usually very dry in the winter time. You can help the plant along by placing it on a tray filled with pebbles and water to increase the humidity around the plant -- just make sure the plant isn't sitting in water. Also, keep it out of drafts from doorways or heating/cooling vents. Norfolk Island pine likes bright light to semi shade, but little or no direct sun.
