Needle length control / how’s to fertilise for this


(jamie swords) #1

I’ve often heard of people mentioning the shortening of needle length in pines and how they can control them. So I guess my question is how do you fertilise a pine within its growth period and not finish up getting longer needles? Or how do you actually feed at all and shorten the needle length?

The short answer is to not feed too much, but there are a number of variables. I cover some of the basics here: https://bonsaitonight.com/2016/07/22/decandling-black-pine-bonsai-overview/
