Vokel’s Upright Hinoki Cypress Care

The Vokel’s Upright Hinoki Cypress is a hardy and disease-resistant dwarf evergreen that is fairly easy to grow. These slow-growing shrubs are drought-tolerant and once established, they require minimal maintenance.

It is crucial to avoid letting your new trees dry out within the first few months before they are established. Deep watering about twice per week is recommended instead of smaller amounts several times per week to ensure proper root growth. We suggest watering your trees as soon as they arrive, even before planting, to keep the roots moist and ready for planting. Applying 2 inches of mulch around the newly planted Hinoki Cypress is a wise decision. This will keep the soil moist during the crucial early period when the roots are acclimating to their new home. Watering during droughts will promote faster growth and a healthier plant.

When planting, ensure that the Falsecypress is in full sun to part shade. This conifer is adaptable to various soil types and environmental conditions, but it is essential to ensure that the soil drains well, whether in the ground or in a container. Overly wet soil can cause diseases, especially in containers, so make sure to choose a pot with several drainage holes. Fertilizing with a balanced slow-release fertilizer is recommended when planting and once yearly in spring. Pruning your Japanese Cypress is not necessary.
