    Are These New Candles Pushing?

    Went out in the garden after working all day and been busy. I noticed my JBP appears to be pushing new candles?? Should I be worried? I repotted it this spring due to a bad needlecast issue and having it in too big of a grow box that stayed too wet. I did no rootwork, basically just slip potted...

    Question about a flowering male JBP

    Recently acquired a young (male, I assume) JBP that had flowered in between the time online pics were taken for sale and me receiving it. This means it has between 1-5 cm of missing needles on the lower parts of almost all its new shoots where the pollen-producing structures that develop in...

    Japanese Black Pine Design Options

    I picked this Japanese Black Pine up around 2 weeks ago. From what I see I have 2 options; 1. Keep it at it's current height and start developing/refining it. 2. Chop it roughly half way to create a shohin sized tree. Just looking for everyone's opinions as I'd be happy with either options, or...

    How To Water JBP

    Hi All, I have some 9 month old Japanese Black Pines and I am always wondering if I am watering them correctly. They are about 9 months old from seed, and they have varying degrees of browning, aside from one. I live in Texas, but it is winter so it is not very hot, and I water them every day...

    Moving a JBP outside

    I have a friend that has a ~6yo JBP that he has grown from seed. He has kept it inside in a bonsai pot forever. He now has a house he could put it outside and I've convinced him it would be best. I'm not sure if it would be better to move it now in our unusually warm and dry Seattle October...

    JBP seedlings: genetic variation or disease

    Do I just have a JBP seedling with some interesting genetics that produce a yellowish coloration on the newest needles or is this something health-related? The 2 seedlings are planted in the same soil mix literally side-by-side in the same mesh bottom tray with downspout tubing risers. They...

    JBP seedling

    So I planted these JBP out of season last October. They handled the winter very well staying greenish purple, but now as they wake up from dormancy two of them have turned brown.

    Time for Decisions on the JBP

    Hi All, Looking for peoples opinions on where I should go with this from here. My inexperienced instinct tells me it’s about time to cut back. Or I could let this seasons flush come and thicken the trunk more, however I’m afraid the lower branching might start dying off. Pictures could be...

In fall, I started noticing few needles browning in the lower branch and the bud not so aggressive. I have seen the diagnosis chart and couldn't find the exact issue. I suspect...

    Japanese red pine 'Jane Kluis'

    Does anyone else happen to have this variety? The information I've been able to find on the web indicates that it's a hybrid, although there seems to be some question about whether it's a cross between Pinus densiflora and Pinus thunbergii or a cross between Pinus densiflora and Pinus nigra...
