Trip to Big Island Hawaii and Fuku Bonsai

Post  Billy M. Rhodes on Fri Jul 27, 2012 10:24 am

I just returned home from a week in Hawaii and was able to prevail upon my friends to visit a Bonsai Nursery with me while we are on the Big Island (Hawaii) mostly to visit the volcano. I had contacted the owner by e mail through the IBC before my visit. These photos were taken by another member of our group but I downloaded her photos first. I might have more from my own files later.



That is me on the right. We got up at 3 AM that morning to fly from Oahu to Hawaii and this was about 9:30 AM. I think I look tired already but I had a good breakfast at a diner called Ken's in Hilo. The item was called Keike Moco, a popular Hawaiian dish that starts with a scoop of rice, topped with gravy, then a hamburger patty, topped with an egg. The Keike Moco has only one scoop of rice and one egg, the Loco Moco has two scoops of rice and two eggs. (I was on vacation and didn't worry about calories or etc.)

More. I visited David Fukumoto at his place and he does tend to specialize in Schefflera. He has one with fairly large unique leaves, I think he said it was called "Oak Leaf" but came from Indonesia.

Ficus, I think retusa

This is the Oak Leaf Schefflera

This is a large Schefflera planted on a large plastic sheet to develop a wide, shallow root system.

Sorry, a repeat.

I call this a Mistletoe Fig, I am not sure of the scientific name.

Anther large Schefflera with lots of aerial roots.

This is a Schefflera with lots of exposed roots. These are not aerial roots.
