“Bonsai with Cacti & Succulents”
A presentation with live plant specimens– Glen Lord is speaking to us on unusual Bonsai …
He is using actual bonsai plants for his talk, rather than showing slides of bonsai…
Glen will show us a variety of plants that make excellent, if unusual subjects for Bonsai…
Find out all you ever wanted to know about what it takes to makes a Bonsai.
Glen’s personal botanically interesting collection is extensive and award winning!!
His specialty? Variegated plants, rare novelties, cacti and succulents, Japanese collectible plants ( like Rhodea, Neofinetia and Acuba) and extraordinary bonsai.
