A new plant needs a small amount of water more often since its roots are still quite confined for several months to a year. Your goal is to gradually wean it back to very infrequent watering over time, applying a good soaking and allowing it to dry out somewhat between waterings. The best way to tell if a new plant needs water is to dig down and feel the soil around the root ball. Water enough to keep the soil moist but not soggy wet.
An established Pinus thunbergia's water requirements are moderate in central Texas.
