Pine collecting in a Central Florida Sand Scrub

<< < (2/5) > >>

SpongeMann:
I have a few more places to go. Hopefully I can find better material. I still can't get to the bald cypress till the bog dries up a bit.I found a little sweetbay magnolia that has nice roots and movement. Yes the leaves are big but they reduce enough for me and I get them to back bud by snapping the trunk and only leaving a strip of cambium to the top of the tree. It works every time.

Anthony:
Spongeman,

looks interesting. Please send the results are your efforts continue on. On our side we are testing the Caribbean/Honduran pine.

What is the red stuff - coconut fibre ?
Thanks for posting.
Good Day
Anthony

Hi Anthony . I am from the carribean also. I am from Puerto Rico. I would really like to see the carribean pine. Feel free to add a pick to the thread. I will definitely keep up on the posts.These trees should recover well since they were growing in sand . I was able to get a lot of fine roots and the tap roots were real short. I would like to style my long leaf pine similar too a slash pine I saw on the internet. Here is the http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://i85.servimg.com/u/f85/13/55/60/08/001_bs16.jpg&imgrefurl=http://ibonsaiclub.forumotion.com/t1255-best-tree-in-nature&h=586&w=800&tbnid=w7Kaswy5nnvKwM:&zoom=1&docid=Lr_oj4s_tBr4FM&ei=fqrcVMryB-fksATJ5oL4Dw&tbm=isch&client=ms-android-metropcs-us&ved=0CB0QMygAMAA

Spongemann,
[ have a real name ? ]

I kinda figured Puerto Rico. Yeah, my Brother-in -law [ Khaimraj ] is an IBCer from around 1998/1999, he does the designing, I just weed/water and help with the repotting [ as I just finished reminding Sorce  ;D ] and the photography.

Here are two Caribbean pines, from seed.
Builder's gravel [ silica based ] 5mm and compost.

I will see about getting you two new images.
Both were just thinned and tested for training using the Japanese techniques for Black pines.
The little one in the image is a J.B.pine and J.B.pines grow easily down here.
Good Day
Anthony
