    Happy New year! That marketplace and the flowers are awesome. Wish I could be there.. but then again , maybe not , I would get myself into loads of trouble because I would want to buy so much I would have to get a Truck to transport them, and then I would have no where to put them when I got home !!! LOL.

    Question: Anyone know the name of the tree with red berries, 4th pic. in the 2nd set of pictures. Looks like a ficus, but i have never seen red berries.

    Happy New Year. Thank you, thank you for the walk in the flower market. I would go absolutely nuts, then everyone would say, "look at that crazy American acting like he has never seen a flower in his life!"

    I can just see myself now with a dozen orchids in one arm, a huge bonsai tree in the other arm, trying to balance a few of those other plants on my head!

    @ angela : Plants that you asked called Ardisia crenata.

    Ardisia - (Ardisia crenata)

    Bushy plant.


    Ardisia - (Ardisia crenata)
    SCIENTIFIC NAME : Ardisia crenata.

    POPULAR NAME : Ardisia, coffee-of-garden. synonymy : Ardisia crenulata, Ardisia labordei, Ardisia bicolor, Ardisis would crispa.


    FAMILY : Myrsinaceae.

    LIFE CYCLE : Perennial.

    ORIGIN : Asia - Japan and China.

    SIZE : Up to 1.80 meters tall. LEAVES : Shiny, evergreen waxy, with serrated margins and wavy, dark green color, are quite attractive.






    Ardisia - (Ardisia crenata) - De -cut sheet
    FLOWERS : Small of size , have white or pink coloring .



    Ardisia - (Ardisia humilis)

    FRUITS : Very decorative, durable, spherical, red colored, bright, emerge in summer to early winter. Some birds feed on it.


    Ardisia - (Ardisia crenata) - Detail of decorative fruits


    Ardisia - (Ardisia crenata) - Detail of fruit
    STEM : Stem thin and upright, the branches naturally lean with the weight of fruit. LUMINOSITY : Half-shade. Enjoy great clarity, but the direct sun during the hottest hours of the day burn their leaves.


    WATER : Enjoys soil slightly moist, never soggy, is drought tolerant, water 2 times per week, decreasing the amount in the winter. CLIMATE : Prefer mild climate but tolerates almost any temperature. In very cold weather places, loses its leaves, which turn to be born when the temperature rises.


    CULTIVATION : preferred soil rich in organic matter, deep, but can be grown in practically any type of soil, since it has good drainage to prevent waterlogging. Because of the small amount of roots does well in pots, planters and flowerbeds shallow, quite rough, does not require maintenance.

    FERTILIZATION : To have a more showy plant, apply NPK 04-14-08 formula, 1-3 tablespoons, depending on the size of the vessel. If planted in garden, 3 to 8 tablespoons as plant size. Apply around the stem, never with him.

    USE : It is very well in pots as plant alone, in small groups or by contrast with the other plants. PROPAGATION : By seeds and cuttings. Germinates quite easily underneath the plant, near the trunk, it is common to find seedlings that sprout seeds that fall through, so in some situations is a plant that can be invasive.

    Thank You so much for your very interesting discription of this plant. I don't think we have it here in the Caribbean (someone correct me if I am wrong) at least I don't know it. Very pretty.
    Thanks again.

    The range of Genus Ardisia is widespread from the New World to Austrlasia, Malenesia and most of the Asia-Pacific region. The Chinese have used Ardisia as a medicinal herb for centuries. In Malaysia, the Ardisia crispa is very common in our jungles and one of the most common plant found growing in rubber estates. It is a short shrub to 4 feet tall and is locally called 'mata itik', or 'coralberry' in English, and research in one of our local universities have found that it has anti-oxidant qualities as well as the ability to control high uric acid in humans and used to control gout. It is also relished by the Malaysian-Siamese community as an 'ulam' (salad, to go with the spicy chilli/'belacan' (fermented prawn pate) ). I always remember the happy times when I was a young boy, accompanying my grand-aunt to collect this 'ulam'. BTW the local Siamese name for it is 'ta pet ta kai' or 'eyes of the duck and chicken' , a reference to the red berries of the plant.
