Pine effort - Dorothy - this is embarrassing

Post  Khaimraj Seepersad on Sun Dec 02, 2012 8:18 pm

Ok, Dorothy,

this is from seed, maybe over 12 years, and still throwing out juvenile foliage.
A lumber tree, and very top dominant. Leaves are some 6 inches [ 15 cm ] long, but can reduce.
Out of desperation, I trimmed the needles, but most have already fallen off.
Soil is mostly silca builder's gravel sifted.
Growing is not the problem, getting mature needles is.

About 12 inches tall [ 31 cm ]

I took the time to move branches around a bit.
Feel free to comment or not, nay or yay.
Thanks.
Later.

Greetings and Salutations,

Gil_fuka - thank you very much for looking and taking the time to comment.

X, it is a lumber pine, a blend of the Honduran and Caribbean pine. The short needles are the immature ones and the longer needled are the mature ones. They can come down to 3" [ 7.5 cm ] and I have seen a few at 1" [ 2.5 cm ], flukes.
Allowed to run wild in a larger 2 gallon clay pot trunks easily make 15 cm [ 6"]
Hope you have to try.
Thanks for looking.
Khaimraj

Khaimraj, anything one grow's from seed is beautiful! I like the way how you managed to grow forks. Not an easy tree. Why feel embarassed?? Oh I see, the pot.. Very Happy

Do you have any pics of mature pines (like yours) growing in your area?

Thanks, Dorothy
