- Pinus Thunbergii, also called Japanese Black Pine, Black Pine, and Japanese pine is a pine native to coastal areas of Japan (Kyūshū, Shikoku and Honshū) and South Korea.
- It is called gomsol (곰솔) in Korean, hēisōng (黑松) in Chinese, and kuromatsu (黒松) in Japanese
- Place it in well-drained soil that is acidic or alkaline and sandy, loam or clay.
- The tree also can grow in salty soil, which it readily tolerates; so it can be part of a seaside garden.
- Fertilizing is also necessary if your bonsai is to remain healthy and beautiful.
- Since your bonsai is growing in such a small amount of soil it is necessary to replenish the soil's supply of nutrients periodically.
- Any general-purpose liquid fertilizer will do fine and is available at most garden centers.
- Suggested fertilizers will be used at half their recommended strength.
- Your bonsai will also respond well to foliar feeding, with a water-soluble fertilizer applied every other month as a spray.
- When nightly lows do not dip below 40 degrees, your bonsai should be placed outside, such as on a patio, balcony, terrace or in a garden.
- Once outside, your bonsai should be positioned where it will receive sufficient sun - morning sun and afternoon shade is best.
- Apply water when the soil appears dry - never allow the soil to become completely dry.
- If your bonsai is receiving full sun, it may be necessary to water once a day.
- Evaluate each tree's water requirements and adjust your watering schedule to accommodate it.
- It is a good idea to use a moisture meter until you get to know the requirements of your bonsai tree.
- Watering should be done with a watering can or hose attachment which should dispense the water in a soft enough manner as not to disturb the soil.
- Water should be applied until it begins running out of the holes in the bottom of your pot.
