awesome!! pics!?!?!

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!

Nice. I'm in ATL and left my PC at home, so I will upload some when I get home tomorrow evening or the day after.

The nursery was Plant City Bonsai, in Clermont GA. Amazing place, absolutely fantastic.

I was eyeing this little guy today. I wasn't sure what it was and they were asking $35 for it so needless to say, it's still at the nursery.

Unfortunately so. But if you have the patience for bonsai you surely have the patience required to wait

Update on my Japanese Maple and Chinese Elm:


New material




This baby was cut down a LOT, hoping for some explosive growth soon -- this should be fun.

i do that sometimes, just to look at them i like to get accustomed to the particular soil and plant mix. each plant and mix is different.

Definitely, this new trident maple's in such a big pot. But it's so hot here I just have been using the hose and watering it in the morning, and by evening our wonderful 90*, soon to be 100* heat dries it out
