It’s really just a cutting (never mind most plants begin as cuttings, seedlings, or air layers…)To many, it’s just a “stick in a pot”.
A nice pot, in this case…A pot made by Rob Addonizio of Taiko Earth.
I’m looking forward to this!
The tree is a ficus microcarpa “tiger bark” or, as some call it, “golden gate” (which I’ve finally found out why they call it golden gate, in this article)
I could call it a “superior” stick in a pot.
It has movement, taper, and a certain gnarly, “je ne sais quoi” quality to it.
And it has branches.
Branches are a plus.
It means we can make something out of it.
Let’s sit down in The Nook, have a drink or two, and see what can happen.
(yes, I need to clean off the bench, I’m interviewing for apprentices right now…..)
