New member here, I live in tropical island Mauritius
I got a sprouted white pine from a friend (supposed to be white pine acquired from ebay but one can never be sure 100% if its a white pine ) in July 2014
From what I’ve read and heard online, white pines have only one growth per year, but my seedling has had new growth in Oct 2015 and now I’m seeing another growth with new candles formation early Jan 2015.
I’m just wondering if that is normal behaviour for a sapling?
Climate : Tropical, but where I live its mostly cold for our standards 16 deg celc. and more rainny than other places. It can get much hotter with 20~23 deg celc. or more.
I’ve placed the seeds outdoors but currently shielding from strong direct sun.
I just got another batch of seeds that just sprouted for X-mas.
4 big white pine seeds and 2 small white pine seeds.
Those are in collander and having the same treatement.
The big white pine seeds looks more healthy and strong / vigourous than the small seeds ones.
I’m just wondering if 3 growth in such a short amount of time is normal for the seedlings?
I know some trees have quick growth when sprouting then settle up with a slower growth later on.
Thanks in adv!
