So do you think it's worth trying to slip pot it?Damn, sorry man. That doesn't look good.
I've had one pine looking like this that bounced back. All the others have died.
In my case it was almost certainly standing water / overwatering. Heat could have been an issue too, but since my pots were painted white and it affected mostly JBP (know to withstand some heat) I thought it was probably just rotting roots from prolonged wetness.
Switched to a drier soil and it never happened again. Which makes a strong case for overwatering.
I don't know a whole lot about rigida. So I can't tell for sure. But since they can bud from bare old wood, and it's as good as gone anyways, I think it can't do much more harm.So do you think it's worth trying to slip pot it?
Pumice!Definitely need to get a different soil for my pines for next year.
