Indoor Shohin Bonsai with Jack Wikle

Jack Wikle

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. 

Founded in 1972, the Bonsai Society of Upstate New York has developed into a strong group
for enthusiasts in Western New York. We regularly host bonsai professionals, with both national and international
reputations, for lectures, demonstrations and workshops. Each spring we share an exhibit of the area's finest bonsai
with the public. We'd welcome your presence at one of our regularly scheduled meetings, in Rochester NY,
where you can easily discover what we're all about!
