I've had trouble with most of my coniferous plants. They tend to die. I've had this potted pine for over a year and it's been slowly getting more and more brown from the bottom up reaching about half way up the tree that is only 60cm high. I thought it might be lack of moisture but this is not the case and the side of the pot has little patches of white mold near the base. It's been outside throughout the seasons but I brought it inside to give it a little change of scenery. That doesn't seem to have made a difference. Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong or what I could be doing better? regards, Kukkonka Here are some pictures in festive dress.
