The Corpse Flower, though in the process of closing, is still GORGEOUS and people are flocking in to see it. SO COOL.
A couple people asked me how I vary my leaves and trees and honestly, it’s super easy! I’ve never made a tutorial/guide before so I kept this mega simple but I hope someone out there might find it useful at least!
Also, anyone can download the brushes I use for all my art on my tumblr page (: I only use around 5 so go nuts haha

Berberis thunbergiiJapanese Barberry is a plant that encroaches upon much of the remaining habitat of native flora and is a major host for ticks.

More research is needed and while thorough manual removal is difficult convincing, Scott M does a good job of this the blog linked here.
