This fantastic Shohin Japanese Black Pine is trained in a traditional Japanese Slant Style. The training wires have been removed, and lots of new summer growth is being put on to thicken up the branches. We have trimmed the needles (rather than plucked) to allow more light to reach the lower branches, without sacrificing the weight that can be gained in the branches from keeping all of the needles. Eventually all of the old needles can be plucked out and new shorter needles will appear. This is an outdoor bonsai! A bright, sunny outdoor position will suit or a window sill with lots of direct morning sun. WATER DAILY! Needs daily watering, direct light and airflow. The moss will not respond well to direct sunlight, a mesh cover for the moss is included to shade it from the sun when it is outside 🙂 ***Bonsai Stand Not included.
