Description

Araucaria, a genus of 20 species of pinelike coniferous plants in the family Araucariaceae. They are found in Brazil, Chile, Argentina, New Guinea, New Caledonia, Norfolk Island, and Australia. The name of the genus is derived from Arauco, the name of a district in southern Chile where the trees were first discovered. Several species are cultivated as ornamentals and as timber trees, and a number are listed as endangered species in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. The trees are magnificent evergreens, with apparently whorled branches and stiff, flattened, pointed leaves. In some species, the leaves are tightly overlapping, giving the branches a scaly appearance. The plants are usually dioecious, meaning that male and female cones are borne on separate individuals. The female cones are typically globose in shape, and the seeds of most species are edible.

Sunlight – Monkey puzzle trees want full sun and do not tolerate shady areas. If growing in a container, make sure the window gets plenty of direct light.

Watering – If the tree has established itself and you have watered it well for the first year, then watering your Monkey Puzzle is low maintenance.For a plant in a container besides keeping the soil moist, a regular misting will be needed. 

Plant Care – The Monkey Puzzle tree is very adaptable, but does best in milder summers and winters. Placing it in a sheltered area in these types of climate is suggested. Once you find a good location you are ready to plant.
