Japanese black pine are among the classic Japanese species used for bonsai. We recommend when growing trees from seed or cutting that you start with a batch of 20-50 trees.

Germination will occur on fresh seed within 2-3 weeks of sowing. No stratification required, a 12-hour soak of the seed will provide more uniform germination timeline but is not necessary.  Seeds can be sown outside in spring once danger of frost is passed, or indoors.  Pines require full sun for robust growth. Grow your seedlings outdoors. Protect seed and germinating seedlings from birds and rodents. 

Bark and branches shown in the photos are from the Alameda parent tree. Seedlings are shown for illustrative purposes only, they are from a common parent stock.
