I was recently down in Houston and was very impressed with all of the Pine Trees there. I think they are Shortleaf Pines or something, everybody here just calls them East Texas Pines (not very helpful). Well, the generally grow VERY tall and usualy only have branches at the very top. I thought it would be great for Literati style, so I found a baby tree about 10 inches tall and took it home with me. I have it growing in a pot in my house under a grow light for 12 hrs a day and it's doing fine and producing new growth. My question is, I know that pines can't be pruned like a regular tree, so how can I do it? How can I keep it from getting any taller and focus it's energy on the lower limbs? I've been pinching off any new candles or growth at the top of the tree, is that right?
