Feed Five-needle pine
In the spring period we suggest fertilizing bonsai periodically, every 20-25 days, using a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour the development of new vegetation and of floral buds. On the market there are specific fertilizers for bonsai plants, which in general arenít very concentrated, to avoid excess fertilization, which could damage the plants cultivated in small containers.

Care Five-needle pine
The Five-needle pine develops like a conifer. Five-needle pine isn't an evergreen; during the winter it assumes a green colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 90 cm in height. They tend to develop like erect small trees.

Irrigation Five-needle pineTenere Umido
Bonsai are usually grown in very small containers, this is why itís best to check for water supplies often, to avoid very damaging periods of drought. These plants favour quite regular watering, usually 2-3 glasses of water ; we advise in any case to irrigate every 1-2 weeks , when the soil is dry.

Adversity Five-needle pine
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Substrate Five-needle pine
Locate these plants in an averagely drained, not too humid soil.
