Emergency Black Pine Repot! Advice needed!

Post  Ryan B on Wed Jun 06, 2012 4:19 pm

So one of my mature black pine shohin was knocked off my benches yesterday, breaking the pot and seriously mucking up the rootball. Candles are at about an inch and a half now. I repotted it ASAP, but since I've never reported a black pine out of season, Id really like some tips on aftercare! Should I whack the current candles now, a few weeks early in my climate, to conserve strength, or leave them, to help build root mass? Move to shade? Average highs hitting mid 90s now, so it may be going dormant?
At a loss. Don't want a loss!

"mucking up the rootball" doesn't paint a clear picture.

How long was it out of the pot? Did it dry out totally?

Was the roots disturbed much? Did you reduce it or just slip potted again?

We need details... Wink

This pine was repotted this spring, so, needless to say, the soil dispersed from the Outside of the rootball, where it was changed, almost entirely when the pot smashed to the deck. Some feeder roots broke off that I could see, and I suspect more within. That being said, the half of the soil that wasn't changed this go round was undamaged and did not dry out.
I removed roots that were obviously broken, and then slip potted it into a slightly larger pot, replacing the soil that was lost carefully.

BUMP up for Ryan.

I am still learning about JBP so cannot help much but based on what I've read, they are very hardy (pine standard wise). With what you described, it should be fine but let's wait for the experienced members to chime in. You may want to consider sending Brian Van Fleet a PM.

Best of luck!!!

I wanted to chip in, but I've got no idea where zone b is, or was it Zone 7b? is it on the Moon?

Earth to Ryan, this is your non-captain speaking. Is it at the moment Summer there by you?
Lets try and figure this out Laughing

Thanks for the referal poink. Brian was, in fact, exactly the mix of advice and comfort I needed! Andre, as far as bonsai is concerned...the moon it is. Zone 7b is America, mid southern Mississippi, specifically, and 2 days into Summer.

I'm sorry but not everyone in the world knows the American zones off by heart, and with my memmory concerning people, I'm gonna ask you the same question in the future again. and again and.. Neutral

Regarding your tree. I think with summer and heat, there wont be any problems.
