Very tall black pine

I have had some success with growing bonsai from seed (last pics are Judas tree and Cotoneaster)

However my black pine had gone mental, it seems very tall and floppy, im concerned because its now sending out candles near the top of the tree, will it flop over under the weight? or will it make it thicken the trunk?

I hope your comments can ease my concerns!

Thanks in advance

It needs to be outside for stronger sunlight and the ability to grow normally! What you are seeing is weak, spindly growth.


It probably would benefit from moving outside gradually, if you look up “hardening off” it should give you the steps.

Ha - it looks pretty cool. Not typical, but it could be a good start for a bunjin tree :slight_smile:
