I’m new to growing bonsai and started my first black pine last year. Just a couple months ago, it started browning. Now it’s completely brown. I went to look at the roots. They are very long, black and stringy but they don’t smell bad. Even tugging a little on the main root, it is pliable and doesn’t break off. I’m having high hopes that perhaps it’s dormant and it will revive but not sure if it’s a lost cause.
