I love meeting people who are as tree and bonsai obsessed as myself, and today I got to spend a little time with a very new bonsai enthusiast.
Victor came to the October 14 meeting of the NVBS and managed to win some plants in our raffle. These two young Ficus were sharing the same tiny little pot and I was happy to help get them separated and into larger pots where they have room to grow and develop into future bonsai material.
We talked a little about wiring and Victor gave it a go to put some movement and character into what were a couple of long arced stems.
It was a pleasure, sir. Welcome to the club!
