    Ikebana in Japan is basically cut flower/plant arrangements as far as my genes tell me. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Those plants are growing in a beautiful arrangement, fortunately, not cut!

    You're right, they're cut plants. Point made/taken!

    It is, however, _some_ kind of Japanese horticultural art form, because A-Chang (the owner of this garden) states in the first thread that he imitated/learned this form of highland nep planting from a Japanese source. He calls it the "Yamada Method": 學日本山田的方式種植高地種 (Big5 encoding)

    It might arise from the Yamada of Yamada Nouen (Yamada Nursery) fame...

    Yep! I agree with that statement! If it indeed originated from where I think it did, here's Yamada-san's website. Absolutely stunning display of plants there too. It's good to see that people are taking full advantage of the climate in Taiwan to grow CP in such a manner!

    Oh, _that's_ Yamada! Why didn't someone say so earlier! One of my favorite drool sites!

    I do buy seeds in Japan, but no plants, as they're mostly too expensive. Seeing how the Japanese invade Taiwan every weekend by the thousands on the hunt for bargain orchids, I'm sure the Taiwanese could make a killing selling Neps to them, too, but somehow no one has figured that out yet.

    Oh well. Maybe I'll make that by business when I retire [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Joe,

    I guess that's the Japanese spirit. AFAIK, the highest goal in Japanese garden design is to make stuff look even more natural than nature, e.g., you won't see straight lines or perfect 90 degree angles.
