what was the name of the nursery?
so i ended up doing that Tropical workshop at Naturesway with Yamil Collazo. He is such an awesome guy! He came up from Puerto Rico just to visit and do workshops/demos for Jim's open house.
The workshop was a tropical workshop, thats all the info we were given. so when I get there, I had no idea what kind of stock we would be getting. turns out it was a mix of things. there were 7 people in the workshop and they had 3 Schefflera, 2 Florida privets, and 2 Ficus. they drew numbers, and i ended up with a ficus. I forget what cultivar of ficus it was though :\ So when i got it, it was this ugly 3 trunked thing with a huge bulge halfway up the main trunk. i had no idea how to get anything out of it! but with Yamil's help, i was able to create a beautiful shohin! i ended up chopping off the main trunk and shortening the whole thing. im super happy with it! the pot i got with it isnt that great, it looks alright, but next time i repot ill get a better fitting pot. ill get pictures for you in a bit!
