It's a tropical that I bought from Erik Wigert on vacation in FL. He said it's very similar to a boug in it's ability to root cuttings and other behavior. Sorry, I just can't remember what it was. Anyway, here are some pics. He gave me some thoughts on it--he said either a slanting style (obvious) and the other was to cut the trunk after the first branches (just above roots) and make it a shohin (a pretty impressive one by his and my own measure--I'm leaning toward this one myself). I just want to get others' opinions of it. Thanks!
