I re-potted a JBP this morning, all are in process of being grown out, not sure if this one was from field or moved up to larger pot (rootmaker), some candles are 10" long, this afternoon I observed the longer candles are wilting. Yes, for Nfla it is late to re-pot, and candles are beginning to needle. Some field grown had to move, while other were awaiting soil components. This is the only one, amongst today's re-pots that is showing stress. I have them recovering currently on west side of house, sun is limited in afternoon by neighbors houseto the west and mine to the east. I'm surprised it showed problems so quickly, they are normally very slow to reveal any deficiencies.

I moved the sick child to the "ICU,"....shady spot under orange tree.

Should I remove, the limp candles? turgor other wise appears adequate.

Any suggestions?

There's medication for limp candles but you need a prescription for it :)

I'd say keep it in the shade, mist it a couple times a day and don't overwater

One of mine growing out in a 15(?) gal. can got dry last year and the candles lopped over, but after watering, it was fine. Shots are from last spring, and this spring. Not to hijack the thread, but I'll be starting one on this tree next week, it's the demo tree for Peter Warren's workshop this weekend!

Glad to hear your Pinus is performing again...

On discoloration, if it was going to, it would have returned by now in your climate. Just be sure it's not needle cast or some other fungus. Once this season is over, you can safely remove last year's needles...
