Here's an update on the remaining pines. Lost the one that wasn't doing too well but luckily the other two are going strong. I ended up not repotting them yet, since I only have two I'm going to wait for a safer time to do it.
The one on the right is developing better. It has a nice cluster of buds at the very top which I originally thought were setting for next year but they started extending a couple of days ago.
That one also has a branch growing from the lowest needle there was. Is there such a thing as it being too low?￼￼ There's another coming right above it it looks like.
The other one just has kind of one big bud setting for next spring.
It looks like it also has a smaller branch coming pretty low on the trunk.
