Podocarpus Macrophyllus is a conifer in the genus Podocarpus, family Podocarpaceae.

  • It is the northernmost species of the genus, native to southern Japan and southern and eastern China.
  • Common names in English include yew plum pine, Buddhist pine and, fern pine.
  • Kusamaki (クサマキ) and inumaki (犬槇) are Japanese names for this tree.
  • In China, it is known as 羅漢松 or luóhàn sōng, which literally means “arhat pine”.
LIGHT
  • When nightly lows do not dip below 40 degrees, your bonsai should be placed outside, such as on a patio, balcony, terrace or in a garden.
  • Once outside, your bonsai should be positioned where it will receive sufficient sun – morning sun and afternoon shade is best.
WATER
  • Apply water when the soil appears dry – never allow the soil to become completely dry.
  • If your bonsai is receiving full sun, it may be necessary to water once a day.
  • Evaluate each tree’s water requirements and adjust your watering schedule to accommodate it.
  • It is a good idea to use a moisture meter until you get to know the requirements of your bonsai tree.
  • Watering should be done with a watering can or hose attachment which should dispense the water in a soft enough manner as not to disturb the soil.
  • Water should be applied until it begins running out of the holes in the bottom of your pot.
FERTILIZER
  • Fertilizing is also necessary if your bonsai is to remain healthy and beautiful.
  • Since your bonsai is growing in such a small amount of soil it is necessary to replenish the soil’s supply of nutrients periodically.
  • Any general-purpose liquid fertilizer will do fine and is available at most garden centers.
  • Suggested fertilizers will be used at half their recommended strength.
  • Your bonsai will also respond well to foliar feeding, with a water-soluble fertilizer applied every other month as a spray.
