Good yolks, bad outbreaks

bonsai general - 25 views



Of the two young black pines then what is expected to grow more next year – The one on the left, or the right

Black pines

2-1 / 2 years old, black pines

My money’s on the tree right. Not because the foliage is of a darker green, but because outbreaks are much stronger.

Healthy bud

apical bud healthy

The tree on the left is weak and has little buds. This is probably because a certain tension in the tree, as transplant or aggressive infestation. As a result, the tree is not preparing for an explosion of vigorous growth in the spring.

Weak bud

Weak apical bud

As expected, the lateral buds on the trees are weaker than apical buds.

Healthy bud

outbreak healthy side

Weak bud

outbreak weak side – you have to squint to see

If the tips of the pines are small, you wonder why it may be the case. There is still time this summer to make corrections before these trees dormant.
