I'm 'Mugs' the Dwarf Mugo Pine and native to the cool mountains of Europe and Japan. I’m prickly but nice. Give me all the sun you got. I’m resilient, you can let my pot dry out between waterings. Some of you like my natural scent, I call it Mugs Musk. Its from my sap, but don’t call me sappy. I'm an outdoor bonsai and prefer full or partial sun locations for optimal health.
Give me a deep watering by submerging my pot up to my rim once every week, or when my pot starts to feel about 1/2 lighter. Submerge for at least 20 minutes. In the height of summer, water me more often if I'm in full sun. In winter I go dormant. Leave me in a cold, protected spot through winter and water only on unusually warm days. I'll want to be in temperatures between 25 and 50 degrees in winter. You can prune me in spring, after my candles have formed.
