This month Jack Wikle will present a program on Indoor Shohin Bonsai at our meeting on October 21st. Jack is a long-time bonsai artist, teacher, and lecturer, who first encountered bonsai while on military service in Japan. He went on to earn an MA in horticulture, and became one of the moving forces in the growth of the bonsai community in the USA.
Jack is a member of the Ann Arbor Bonsai Society. He is perhaps best known for pioneering efforts in growing very small bonsai indoors under cool white fluorescent light all year round. Jack is also curator of the bonsai collection at Hidden Lake Gardens in Michigan, and has practiced the art of Bonsai for about 45 years.
