Chuhin Black Pine Restyle | Michael Hagedorn


In a game-changing redesign, John Wang of Los Angeles, CA remodeled this gangly pine right into a unified bonsai. Whereas my consumer owns it now, the pine has modified solely subtly since John received his golden mitts on it over ten years in the past.

At this level I took over the pine’s upkeep, with a primary wiring that leaned on John’s excellent earlier work.

After an extended search, an appropriate vintage pot was discovered (the one within the center).

That is December 2021, earlier than pulling previous needles and trimming extra summer time shoots.

Right here it’s afterwards, 2021. Needles are just a little brief this yr. Black Pines can weaken if the regrowth following decandling produces needles which can be too brief for too a few years in a row. With a tree this dense there may be some latitude. A number of methods to keep up vigor: reduce off weaker shoots; extra fertilizer; depart some previous needles; shorten repotting schedule; and rethink decandling date.
