With the experience and help of others, Ben was able to improve the collection and continue refinement. He can talk about a specific species, refinement techniques, wiring, repot/pot selection, irrigation and garden design, and so much more. Based out of Orlando, Florida. Clubs are also welcome to visit the garden as a club tour. He is also known, generally, as being terrible at carving.
