Owen Reich:
Ume get a number of different fungal, viral, and bacterial issues. 

Verticillium wilt is bad news.  Armillaria is really bad.  Scale, aphids, caterpillars, Japanese beetle, etc.

Totally worth it though   ;D.

Mine didn't have a problem with bugs but even though I coddled it to the point of obsession it would not thrive. It's the climate. Cool humid and wet.

Good question. In Japan it's forced to flower inside to raise the spirit in anticipation of spring. You could get the particulars from someone whose done this there.

So far I've only had to evict an ant nest in the base, other than that, pretty carefree here.  (so far)
