In memory of a great bonsaiist and artist with a vision,please post your nerifolias here so we can start a ficus gallery to remember Joe Samuels.
Without him we would not have this wonderful bonsai material.
I am posting Ernie's Ficus nerifolia over rock.He planted the tree as a cutting
and later (1987) grew it over the rock,which was extended over time.
The other tree is my first Ficus nerifolia.The tree,growing since 18 years in a nursery container in Ernie's backyard lost most of its' upper part during a rare frost (Florida) in the 90's.Nature was determined to make a bonsai out of this great material..
I eventually styled the tree in 2003 and transplanted it (many cuttings..)into a bonsai container.
