SOLD Pinus thunbergii/Japanese Black Pine Starter Bonsai
Out of stock
Pinus thunbergii/Japanese Black Pine Starter Bonsai. Started from seed 2 years ago. These saplings are very well prepared having good nebari preparation, some lower trunk movement and lower branch options for the future.
It has not been possible to import Japanese Black Pines for quite some time and they are becoming difficult to find.
These trees can either be developed into small 4"-8" tall bonsai (mame and shohin size) or allowed to grow-out to thicken the trunk for a taller bonsai. Allowing the top of the tree to extend freely to help thicken the trunk while developing the lower trunk and branches as a bonsai is a great way of mixing both approaches!
Black Pines are very vigorous and thicken rapidly. It is also possible to use the old method of wiring the trunk and allowing the wire to bite in to dramatically accelerate thickening.
If you are going to start bonsai, make your journey much easier and more positive with a healthy tree that has been set up properly.
Excellent quality starter bonsai that is being sold here as an alternative to typical imported bonsai that are planted in very poor quality soil and often due to root failure. This tree is very healthy, has a vigorous root system and simply needs placing outdoors (year round) and watering in a regular basis.
The tree that you see here is the actual tree you will receive. All have been candle-pruned in mid-June 2022 and are pushing new growth already.
Current height 10"/25cm to 12"/30cm approximately
