Pinus Parviflora: how to take care
Pino watering should be performed with extreme caution; it loves to live dry, therefore, care must be taken not to keep the substratum constantly moist, but rather to wait for it to dry before wetting it again. Furthermore, it is recommendable to nebulize its foliage especially during the summer. In spring and autumn it is particularly important to keep the bonsai in full sun, while in the warmer months it is important to keep it sheltered from direct sunlight
