    Well, the top of the Wollemi pine is getting ready to sprout. After taking these images I noticed the gum, or resin, seepage down the stem. It is quite hard, too. Seems as though the plant is healing whatever wounds the new growth may cause. As yet, there is no sign of forthcoming growth on the lateral branches, though many of them have knobs at their ends which, usually, indicate imminent growth. There also appears to be growth just below the top, as well.



    Closer view.

    More images of these strange warty growths. The Wollemi pine is a truly strange plant. ;)

    A tip at the end of one of the lateral branches. This, usually, indicates future branch growth.

    Another view of the shoots. This is, indeed, a strange plant.

    Our wonderful little Wollemi Pine continues to rapidly grow its new foliage. How the shoots push through the hard resin is a mystery to me. The plant seems, so far, to appreciate its new, larger, container.

    There seems to be some new growth on the trunk as well.

    Do you know if the resin it secretes is to protect the new shoots coming out?. It must be there for some reason.

    I would imagine this is the case, Dawn. Have noticed it, also, on the tips of branches before they start shooting out.

    It is a great little tree & I do hope it will grow upwards, also, during this growth cycle. Hope the new pot will give it a nudge in that direction. Though, it is predictable in its unpredictability. :lol:

    The lower layer of shoots at the top of the Wollemi pine are opening up while the top ones are not. Wonder if they are going to wait for the tree to grow upwards before opening up??? Hope so.

    The buds that were part way down the trunk have also started opening.

    The new growth at the top of the Wollemi pine continues to slowly open.

    Well, our wonderful Wollemi pine has started sprouting again this spring, albeit a little late in the season. It has much more pale green shoots than it did last spring. They are on the top as well as many of its branches.

    We, may, finally, have a growth spurt!!! :bravo: Will have to get some pics tomorrow. :whistle:

    Our Wollemi pine is now having its spring growth spurt & it appears to be more extensive than it was last spring.

    Here are a couple of the lovely soft green growths on the edges of branches.

    Another on a branch tip. The Wollemi pine seems to grow a new branch at the end of the old one.

    Most of the new growth on our Wollemi Pine is concentrated on the small upper branches, though. It is a mass of little branches which didn't seem to grow much last spring.

    Hadn't really noticed that there was a growth spurt at the top of our Wollemi pine. It has grown a few inches since last year & now has a crown of new growth at the top as well as on the bush of branches below. They seem to be all bunched up with plenty of growth buds at the ends of the small branches getting ready to pop open.

    Here are today's images of some of the new growth on our wonderful Wollemi pine. They show just how quickly it can grow. There seems to be less rsin this year. May be because there has been less sun, perhaps. :??: :huh2:

    Our Wollemi pine has doubled in height in the three years we have had it.

    This plant is unique in its design. It looks like in a fern family more than a pine. Does it smell like a pine tree? I must remember the plants will look different for your area than for mine.

    Beautiful plant.
