How to Care?
- Choose a soil for your pencil pine that is fertile enough and well-drained.
- Make sure not to overwater as they do not like watering much.
- Always check the plant by touching the topsoil so that the soil gets completely dry before you water it.
- Try to loosen the soil from time to time without damaging your roots to help keep it growing.
- Always choose a well-balanced organic fertilizer to feed your plants in the main growing seasons, such as summers and springs.
- Do not fertilize your Pencil Pine plants in the winter season as the growth speed ultimately reduces and doesn’t work well.
- Choose a pot bigger than your current pot with fresh, well-drained soil to re-pot your Pencil Pine.
- Always prefer re-potting in the evening and keep them in the shade for at least 2-3 days before moving them to the full sun.
- Always keep removing the dead and infected parts from the plants to avoid pests and diseases.
- Apply Neem Oil or Eucalyptus Oil as a primary treatment in case of any fungal infection or disease.
- Always make sure to fertilize only once a month in your primary growing season to avoid roots burning.
- Fix a balanced schedule for watering and reduce the session in winter to avoid all the risks associated with root rotting.
- Allow the plant to grow longer, and then keep pruning it from time to time to give them the right shape.
