Care Information

The success of your bonsai depends on a variety of factors, most notably watering and light. Below are some species specific guidelines to follow that will help ensure that your bonsai will stay healthy and happy.

Pruning Tips:
Black Pine bonsai trees require regular candle and needle maintenance during the summer and winter months. Doing so will reduce the needle size as well as promote healthier growth. We recommend candle cutting between June- August when it is warm and the sap is pushing. Needle and bud selection can be done during the dormant period.

Fertilizing:
We recommend fertilizing your bonsai tree every month with a bonsai fertilizer. Time release granules are the easiest to use and can be added every season. Reduce the amount of fertilizer during the winter. Take care to not over-fertilize as this can cause your leaves to burn or grow too leggy.

Lighting:
Black Pine Bonsai trees thrive best with natural sunlight. We recommend direct natural sunlight. If placed in full sun, take care to manage your watering to prevent your tree from drying out. However, black pines enjoy full sunlight.

Temperature Requirements:
Black pines are very hardy to all climates including both hot and cold condtions. Due to their evergreen nature, black pine bonsai trees will maintain their green color over all seasons.

Watering Requirements:
Black pine bonsai trees require regular watering. We recommend using a soft spray to soak the soil. Ensure that water penetrates not only the topsoil but also into the roots by checking that draining is occurring on the bottom of the pot. Keep the Black Pine moist at all times.

Repotting:
Black Pine bonsai trees can be repotted during spring and fall for highest success rates. Avoid winter repotting as colder temperatures will make it harder for roots to recover. During repotting, we recommend trimming off older roots to promote new growth. After repotting, place tree in a shaded area for 2-3 weeks prior to placing back in full or partial sun. Use a high draining mix as Black Pine's are susceptible to root rot.

Outdoor:
Black Pine bonsai trees thrive best in outdoor conditions.
