How to Grow and Care for Your Pencil Pines

  • Sunlight and Soil Requirements

    Pencil pines thrive in full sunlight, so make sure to plant them in a location that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day. They also prefer well-draining soil with a slightly acidic pH level. Add organic matter such as compost or peat moss to improve the soil's quality and drainage.

  • Watering and Pruning

    Keep your pencil pines well-watered, especially during dry spells or hot weather. Water deeply but infrequently to encourage deep root growth. Avoid overwatering as it can lead to root rot. Regularly prune the trees to maintain their desired shape and height, removing any dead or diseased branches.

  • Pest and Disease Control

    Monitor your pencil pines for common pests like aphids or spider mites. If detected early, use insecticidal soap or neem oil sprays to control these pests effectively. Additionally, keep an eye out for diseases such as cypress canker or root rot; promptly remove infected parts and treat with appropriate fungicides if necessary.

Size matter!

Ì bought the 200 mm size thinking they would be a bit taller than the ones I received, I think they should advertise the hight rather then the pot size☹️

Absolutely beautiful.

The plants that were delivered were Beautiful, healthy, and much bigger than I expected for the price.

And the delivery driver was amazing, dropping off the plants down our very long driveway, out of view from the road, and not blocking anything.

Fantastic product and service.
