    Legacy Japanese White Pine

    In November 2018 my Father in Law passed away and a dozen of his trees passed on to us. We had kept these trees during the past two winters, but we did nothing except repot and keep the trees alive for the next year, mostly due to damage and subsequent surgeries from auto accident for 18+...

    panda’s Pinus parviflora ‘Aoi’

    I bought this white pine from my local nursery during their fall tree sale. I find the foliage of ‘Aoi’ stunning, and the growth habit looks compelling for an upright or slanting pine. Its also one of the cultivars listed in the Bonsai Today book, so somebody’s using them for bonsai. When I...

    Bonsai in fridge

    Hi! I decided to pick up 2 JWP but then realized they need a winter dormancy to survive long term. I live in a tropical area so there’s no winter, lowest it gets is 65F (18C). I read around and see some use fridge but no “long term” success yet. I’m gonna give it a shot with a mini fridge to...

    Repotting Japanese pines in summer???

    So, I was watching YouTube and a new BonsaiQ video popped up on my feed. A little over halfway through the video, the guy says that he repots Japanese pines in the middle of summer when it’s hot. Kinda blew my mind to hear that. Has anyone here tried doing that as their regular practice? If so...

    Japanese white pine seeds

    Hello everyone, I recently ccollected some jwp seed from my local nursery. The pine was a named cultivar and my question is what can I expect from the seed? Will they resemble the cultivar be sterile or best case scenario revert to a regular jwp as that is what I would prefer? Thank you

    Lorax7 JWP #4 progression

    Picked up this Japanese White Pine ‘Fukuzumi’ nursery stock this summer. Up-potted it a little when I got it w/ minimal disturbance of the roots. Pruned one branch to avoid creating inverse taper, wired the first branch, and wired a branch that will eventually be the trunk. I’m aiming to...

    Hello, I live in seattle, region 8b and i have a Japanese white pine which is maybe 2-3 years old. I got this tree maybe a year ago and it seemed to be doing well until January but it's needles started turning brown thereafter. I was kept in an uncovered section of the patio during the winter...

    Nursery JWP?

    Debating on getting this guy, but it may be more work than it's worth. $200 ain't cheap, but I don't see nursery pines like this here. Tree is about 18" from soil level with about a 3" nebari. Decent branch structure. Roots I'm sure are a mess, which may lend itself to not being a good choice...

    I am pretty new to pines and would greatly appreciate some advice and help with a game plan for this tree. It is a grafted Miyajima, jwp supposedly 9-10 + yr out.

    Lorax7 JWP #1 progression

    Beginning a progression thread for my first JWP. Forgot to take a picture before starting to work on it. It was straight and basically Christmas-tree-shaped when bought from the nursery. After some branch selection, wiring, and first bending: After working on that bend a bit more and...

    JWP Discolouring Needles

    Hi everyone! Im not sure if this is normal for white pines it’s got a blue ting to the needles so I’m assuming it must be grafted but they seem to be losing colour. Any tips would be great as I don’t want it getting any worse! Thanks Ben

    JWP Grafts

    Hey guys, I just bought several young JWP from an online Bonsai nursery with the goal of growing them in the fields and potentially ground-layering them at the graft (previous post discussing Brent Walstons' method: https://www.bonsainut.com/threads/ground-layering-to-get-rid-of-grafts.48454/)...

    Ground-layering to get rid of grafts

    Hey guys, I recently came across two articles, that, if I understand them correctly, state you can use ground-layering to remove grafts from 1. JWPs (https://www.evergreengardenworks.com/rootgraf.htm) and 2. Prunus mume (https://ibonsaiclub.forumotion.com/t8646-grafting-bonsai-prunus-mume)...

    JWP grafting

    This is my ongoing quest to graft jwp. I acquired some EWP rootstock from a local nursery that was being discarded as they grafts for the nursery trade didn’t take. I bought a Regenhold JWP. It obviously isn’t good for bonsai in it’s current form. I am barerooting the EWP bands down to the...

    Recently acquired this JWP 'Glauca' from a local nursery and I am very new to JWP's so I am hoping for some guidance. The tree only ran me about $75, so seemed like a decent buy and I was itching to learn more about the species. I did basic work uncovering the nebari, only working the first 2-3...
