Key Benefits: A beautiful plant for first-time owners!

Never owned a houseplant before? Introducing the Buddhist Pine Maki, also known as a Japanese Yew Plant. With just a little indirect sunlight and some basic care, you can have a beautiful plant in the corner of your home or office that will look beautiful all year round. 

Since it’s slow-growing, you don’t have to worry about repotting regularly. You can just enjoy the soft, grass-like needles, which start out bright green and then darken to a stunning green/blue. 

How do Buddhist Pines grow?

This thirsty pine is a slow-growing plant and is ideal for those looking to interact regularly with their plants. It grows with a columnar habit, naturally growing tall and upright so it won’t take over your room. This makes it ideal for the corner of your bedroom or office where it will bring life and joy to your home. You can plant the maki outside in the ground if you wish, but when kept potted indoors it will remain a small, easy-to-manage shrub.

Plant Care Tips

  • Light: Prefers bright, indirect light, ideally filtered. No direct sunlight. 
  • Temperature: Prefers temperatures of 18°C to 24°C. 
  • Water: Keep soil evenly moist and allow the top 5cm of soil to dry before watering. Drain excess water.
  • Fertilizer: Fertilize monthly with a balanced fertilizer when the plant is actively growing (normally in Spring and Summer) 
  • Soil: Use a well-draining, high organic matter soil mix
  • Repotting: This is a slow-growing plant and may not require repotting every 12-18 months. Choose a pot that is 5cm larger in diameter than the current pot.
  • Cleaning: Reshape your Buddhist Pine with light pruning.
  • Toxic: Keep away from pets and children.

Common problems

Why do the leaves of my plant feel hard or crunchy?

It’s time to water! You can also increase the humidity by regular misting with a spray bottle.

I think my plant is starting to stretch for light, what do I do?

Move the plant to a location with bright, indirect light. Although it can’t tolerate direct sunlight, you can create bright filtered light by placing the plant in front of a window with sheer curtains.

Why is my Buddhist Pine drooping?

This is an indication that the plant needs water. Buddhist Pine does not like to dry out completely. Allow the top 5cm of the soil to dry before watering and ensure excess water can drain freely.

Why are the leaves of my Buddhist Pine dropping?

This problem is usually associated with overwatering. You may also notice new growth becomes soft and brown. Check your watering schedule and reduce watering if needed - let the top 5cm of soil dry before watering again. 

Common Pests: Susceptible to mealybugs and scale.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
