White pine repotting question.
« on: March 19, 2010, 11:48 AM »
Hi all, I have a repotting question. When I was repotting last week my regular Japanese black pine had tons of mycorrhiza in the roots. The Japanese white pine on black pine roots had almost none. The white pine is slowly declining, I thought because of the heat in summer around here and lack of cold winters but now I'm  not so sure. Could the lack of the fungus have anything to do with it's decline? There are people around here that can grow white pine, but I've read they don't do well long term in hot areas. I've had both trees for about 3 years and both were in great need of repotting. Not sure what to do, if anything, to help the white pine since the deed is done and it's now resting in semi-shade with the other repotted plants.
