    Bonsai at BBG *pic heavy*

    As some of you know, I am doing internship at the brooklyn botanical garden. Anyway, today we were given a tour of the botanical gardens private collection, it is supposedly one of the biggest in the world. Many of these plants are over 300 years old!

    Luca,
    Wow!! Thanks for sharing - there are some amazing trees in there!

    By any chance, do you have any closer pics of the one on the tall table in the middle of this pic?
    All the best,
    Ron

    Wow! I love their bonsai room, but it's so nice to see a behind-the-scenes look at their collection. Thanks for sharing!
    Do they have many CPs hiding back there somewhere? Last time I was there I only saw some US temperates (sarrs, VFT, drosera) as well as D. adelae in their aquatic room. Not a nep in sight.
