Common name: Chir pine, Himalayan longleaf pine, Chir
Color: red-brown
Bloom time: June to frost
Height: 30 ft.
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
Gather longleaf pine seeds in late autumn after the cones have ripened and begun to split open. Collect one or two cones and place them in a paper bag. Put the bag in a very warm, dry area for six to eight weeks, or until they drop their seeds. br> Determine which seeds are viable. Place them in a bucket filled with cool water and soak them for 24 hours. Throw away seeds that float to the surface since they are probably hollow or rotten. Collect the seeds that sink to the bottom of the bucket.

Sunlight: Full Sun

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 60° to 74° F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Sow the seeds in individual 4-inch pots filled with a mix of equal parts medium-grit sand, perlite and sterile potting soil.
  • Press the seed into the surface of the sand mixture so it is halfway buried but still exposed to light.
  • Cover the seed with a very thin layer of pine needle mulch.

  • Place the potted seeds inside a lightly shaded cold frame.
  • Warm the pots to 70 Farenheit using a germination mat.
  • Leave the mat on at night.
  • Cover the pots with a loose sheet of clear plastic wrap to help hold the warmth and moisture around the seed.


Care:
  • Water the seeds whenever the sand mixture feels barely damp in the top inch.
  • Add water until it trickles from the bottom of the pot.
  • Avoid overwatering the seeds or letting them dry out completely because either situation will lower the likelihood of successful germination.


Special Feature:
Grow the longleaf pine in its original container for two to three weeks. Transplant it into an 8-inch pot filled with a mixture of half medium-grit sand and half loam once the seedling produces its first set of true needles.
Use
