Also question is, how do you make Podocarpus grow faster?

Podocarpus can go without bright or direct light for long stretches but will grow taller and faster under the bright light of the sun. Like any plant, they do need regular watering, though they can stand long periods with no water, especially if the soil is particularly dense.

Similarly, can Podocarpus grow in pots? Podocarpus growing in pots appreciate a moist but well-drained soil. You can also add 10-20% pumice or Perlite to the soil mixture to enhance drainage. Also make sure to choose a container that is large enough to allow for 2 to 3 years of growth before shifting up to a larger size container.
