SEPTEMBER 20th 2019 MEETING | PAUL MINERICH – BOUGAINVILLEA STYLING DEMO
Paul Minerich has been practicing bonsai since 2008 when he dug out an old growth Bougainvillea from his yard. Paul’s father-in-law was Tim Nomiyama, who owned a nursery and landscape business and also developed Japanese Black Pine from seed.
Paul’s love for tropicals, especially Bougies, has led to his obsession with bonsai. Paul studies under Mel Ikeda and DIBK founder Leila Kusumi. At our September meeting, Paul will be demonstrating Bougainvillea styling techniques and discussing bonsai pot repair.
