Japanese Red Pine Stock

5 reviews


Only available to South African customers.


I usually release some of my Japanese Red Pine stock at the beginning of summer (seedings) and older plants at the end of the growing season, during winter. These plants have been grown by myself, from seed purchased from reputable sources in Kinashi, Japan thus they are guaranteed to be the species as claimed.

My process

All 1 year and older stock has been grown from seedling cuttings for the best possible nebari. This also results in a very short stem length till the first actively growing buds making them idea for mame and shohin sized trees which can be grown in a much shorter space of time than the medium and larger size bonsai.

Read more about my process here.

While plants are in my care they are fed copious amounts of BonsaiBoost, fed weekly alternating with Seagro, Sea Secret and Kelpak to stimulate strong roots. Monthly fungicide treatments are applied, alternating between Copper Oxychloride, Chronos and Unizeb.


Seedlings less than 1 years of age are sold loose, without growing medium in a plastic bag with damp sphagnum moss. Each 1 year and older plant is sold in its container with growing medium, which is watered thoroughly and then plastic wrapped prior to shipping.

Further Reading

The techniques for growing Red pine are almost identical to Black Pines. Read more about this species here. 

Seedling images are depictions only of the average size and development of sale stock. Other photos are examples of Japanese red pine which I have grown from seed.

    Japanses red pine

    I was pleasantly surprised when I received the little pines, they were carefully packed in a Jiffy bag and their roots wrapped in Sphagnum moss. I have potted the seedlings and they are very happy. Thanks again to Bonsai Tree for another excellent delivery.
