hi Eric, missed having you around. Your figs are coming on well, and it looks like you will have plenty of maples to play with.

Wow, what a nursery, Eric! Looks like some really interesting curves and directions starting to happen with those figs. What kind of pots are those in the first pic?

Hello Luzy

They are mame pots made of pumice stone, I like to restrict the growth right from the start for my smaller bonsais :)
