Margaret, that is what I was thinking as well. Alot of stores around here sell them this time of year with little glitter things on them. I was thinking of getting one, but then I'd have to move it. I might end up getting it tho. laugh

thanks all!! it is similar .. i called the store i got it from. spoke to the 'plant lady' there, the one who orders them all. she knew which one it was and read the tag. it says 'Italian stone pine' not much care instructions i have also seen the other ones that are the 'Norfolk pine' maybe because mine is so small i think it looks different. but for now i am following the care instructions for the Norfolk pine. thanks again. maybe when the hubby gets home he can load in a few pics for me.

Information in the descriptions here
indicates it could easily be Italian stone pine in baby form.

Click here for pictures of different little tabletop live trees and see if your tree is one of them (includes a pic of Italian stone pine, Norfolk pine, and others). I think that Italian stone pine looks cute!

Happy hunting!
