This month, Adam Lavigne, The Prez, will be talking about a propagation technique on Florida’s favorite ficus, F. Salicaria.
Adam will talk about the different uses of this technique, the history of it in Florida, and will have some examples of trees in various levels of development, grown using it.
The main tree to be demonstrated on (a big clump) came from the root base sawn off of a clump during a demo by the late, great Florida bonsai master, Jim Smith
There will be saws, wire, Ficus sap, bonsai soil, mayhem, and way too many bad jokes.
Should be a good time!
