Cut it down and its regrowing nicely.
I noticed at each node along the branch theres these little leaves with super short petioles. Kind of hard to see, but im wondering how to take advantage of this growth. Maybe cut the branch back to the first node and see if these take over and develop?
Well it was labeled as a Natchez with white flowers, which I was really looking forward to... But guess what, it's not. I got purple flowers, which I'm not a huge fan of, but oh well.
So, I guess we have 2 Purple Cows on here now! @just.wing.it
Thanks for that insight, I figured the other needles that are broken off are just ones that have already browned and broken off, so they are already missing. But I've been wondering too what all the brown tips could be on the other needles. I've been hitting it with fungicide, but probably not...
I noticed that some of this springs needles have browned and broken off. Really weird, any ideas what would cause this?
I wonder if it could be physical damage? It did fall off the bench a week or 2 ago. 😫
Got this little thing awhile back at an old nursery and have just been letting it gain back some health.
Starting to clean up the trunkline and live vein. When you guys clean bark off old dead wood, is there a better way to get it cleaned off than what I'm doing? I'm just scraping it off with...
Small update on this one, just to track progress. Put on some good growth, this is after I thinned it it out and cut back some. Next spring going to repot it at a slightly more upright angle, possibly in the ground or a larger size container to help put on some girth.
I love the style of the first one, it does look natural. So when you say you grew the trunks too fast, what does that mean exactly?
To get taper along the branch do you have to cut back to the first node after every growing season?
