Pinus caribaea, a tropical pine

Pinus caribaea, a tropical pine from Central America, I think this is a good option for people living in the tropical climate to own a pine bonsai. This pinus caribaea belong to a FB friend of mine by the name of Willis Panell living in Puertro Rico.

Chiang Cheng Kooi,

thank you very much for posting this rare, rarely seen tropical pine. Down on my side, the tropical pine is a mix of the Honduran and the Caribbean pine, but since it is a tree grown for lumber, the trees tend to be very top dominant. I have a few under test training, and I have to keep the top severely pruned, to keep the side branches alive as well as thickening.

It is still easier on my nerves to grow Japanese black pines. Laughing

Thanks again,
Khaimraj
