I think the color balance on the photo is wrong (at least on my monitor). The foliage looks too light green - maybe the tree is a bit chlorotic. I've had this problem with several of my Japanese Black Pine this year.

The glazed green pot is not the best choice as it offers no contrast to the green foliage. Usually you try to pick pots that have a color on the opposite side of the color wheel from the predominant color of the tree - in this case the green foliage. I don't have a problem with glazed pots for pines provided they help portray the image. In this case the color is wrong. Plus the pot appears to be a very low budget version and this nice tree deserves a better pot.

I am with Rob on this... the tree needs a more 'masculine' pot. What it is in now suggests a flowering tree.... I have a similar colour for my Escallonia (it has pink flowers) flower

Could it have something to do with the fertilizer? I have been apart of several conversations about these black pines getting very green. One person had mentioned the placement of the tree during the winter. I'm just throwing it out there.

Have to calibrate your monitor. The tree is not chlorotic.

The color of the pot is a bad idea. Maybe the flat should be kept for the future.

Sorry for my bad english pig

Rob your monitor is fine, so is mine. The color balance is off. Here is a very quick adjustment.

Here is my personal idea for new container... also an adjustment in the planting angle.

Nice bonsai!

Keep up the good work.
