    Greetings All,

    Live in far northeastern California. Elevation about 4300' so snow and cold are a given.

    I'm here more for propagation techniques but it will probably evolve into bonsai.

    Love tropicals, cacti, and dogwood.

    Ask any questions you like.

    What kind of laundry detergent do you use?

    Are you allergic to pollen, or zinc?

    Does ice cream have legs?

    Kneel, or Ryan Neil?

    If a bonsai truck leaves Portland at 6PM...
    And a white Bonsai Van leaves Florida at 4PM...
    Who buys all the S shaped trees?

    Why the hell?

    Welcome to Crazy!?

    Indeed I have! One of my many dream jobs through the years was at a zoo where there was a large breeding population of howler monkeys. Since they were breeding I'm confident at least some of them were uncles. Now that was a fun job. At least it would have been if I hadn't just dreamed it up!

    I remember him telling me once that though bumpy, they were quite tasty!

    Just realized I crashed the party and brought up politics and religion in one of my very first posts! Do politics, religion, and bonsai mix?

  14. Love your sense of humor.

    There is a ''Grafting, Layering & Propagation'' sub forum, way down the list of categories. It is a little sleepy, as often threads that belong there get started higher up the list, usually General Discussion. But there is a lot of propagation information in this site.

    Propagation specifically for bonsai is a topic that gets relatively little attention. There is a difference between what one would do for future landscape stock and future bonsai stock. I do enjoy this aspect of bonsai, but as a hobby guy, I don't have time or space for as much as I would like,

    Brent Walston, Evergreen garden works, has a series of really good articles about raising young stock to become pre-bonsai. Check out the articles in his Article Archives. He also sells young stock specifically for bonsai. I buy something from him every year.

    Thanks Leo,
    Brent is about 5 hours drive from me on a good day. But, thanks to the net, he's just moments away via e-mail. I'll read and learn.
