The Japanese Yew is known for creating mighty outdoor hedges and being large, stately trees in warmer climates, but did you know that they are excellent indoor plants if you have a brightly lit spot inside your home? Podocarpus macrophyllus has emerged into the houseplant world as sculptural specimen trees that can creatively prune to your liking. They contrast with indoor plants with large, flat leaves like ficus or strelitzia. These conifers need at least 6 hours of very bright indirect light to grow and stay healthy; without it, they will start to drop their needles and thin out. Japanese Yews do very well place next to the south and west-facing windows. This plant is toxic if ingested and may cause skin irritation. Keep away from pets and children.
