Hello and thank you for having me I JUST joined and SO excited to be here! I have always admired the above pine tree. I have seen people growing them indoors and just think so much of the tree. At long last i purchased my first "tree" in december from a walmart hoping for a christmas tree. The interesting feature about this NICE big tree two and half or three feet high, THICK, is that it was three trees in one! I had to "park" it in a corner in the room here to squash the 3 trees together. I hated doing that to it so one evening I got REAL brave , pulled this "3 headed monster" out of its single pot, and YES I sawed the root system into 3 separate trees, and planted them WITH POTTING SOIL into 3 separate pots yes 3 separate trees now and they looked terrific got full appreciation from visitors! They looked SO perfect and exciting.........at first, and for how many weeks hmmm? UNFORTUNATLY yesterday saturday I took scissors to the dried hard dead branches. Only a few are left at the TOPS of each tree two trees have new "branch buds" that if they are still growing, they're NOT growing fast These trees just CANNOT have DIED out right, but rather going through a shock change? They each WILL grow back again? For now i maintain them in pots with potting soil, I keep them waterd, sadly this apartment IS dark so I have a fluoresant bulb and two fluoresant GROW lights on the 3. I dearly hope I dont read a reply saying "I blew it' i dearly hope some reply sands me alternatives or just a patience reassurance. THANK YOU EVERYBODY!!!
