My Norfolk Island pine has lots of scattered brown needle...

It’s in an EasyPlant self watering pot, by a humidifier, under a SolTech grow light and by a south facing window where I’ve mostly keep the blinds closed. I really don’t want to lose this plant. About 1.5 months ago it was in a different location and was dropping full lower branches. But now I have this entirely new problem :( #GrowLights
2ft to light, direct
12” pot without drainage

@Arugula.craves Welcome to the Greg community! Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. A tropical plant, the Norfolk Island Pine's potting mix can be kept semi-moist, but not wet, which will lead to root rot. Expect to water more often when your Norfolk is in brighter light and less often in lower light. Here’s a website that will help you keep and grow your plant. https://www.thespruce.com/grow-norfolk-island-pine-indoors-1902627 Happy Growing!
@Ms.Persnickety Thank you for the tips! Seems like this plant might not be a great candidate for a self watering pot?
