    Satish,Yew and Randy I know it's so pricey try to get the smaller one at least it will take 2 to 3 years to bloom maybe less than that if the condition is suitable for them to grow.

    Salam, yes this is different initially I thought white background as the vendor told me I'm so excited finally when in bloom the pattern on the petals so unusual never seen before, I love it.

    Yes through my experience this guy also like it make sure the broken branch is lasting at least 4 years you can use the "lempoyan" or longan branch minimal length is about one foot to accommodate the roots.

    The bane of all mango growers here - the attack by borers, the larvae of a beetle. Most trees attacke by the borers last only a few years The only mango variety that seems immune to the attack by these borers is the 'Sala' variety, now widely grown in Kedah. This variety of mango would make a suitable host tree for the orchids. Apart from this, it fruits the whole year round with quite large fruits 2 - 3 to a kilo. The fruits may not have the eating quality of 'Harum Manis' or 'Chok Kanan' but on a scale of 10, I would rate it a 6.5 . However, the green unripe fruit makes the best Nyonya kerabu, and of course Thai kerabu ( Thai hot, spicey salad of shredded green mango ) . It is also ideal for making mango juice - smooth, creamy and with a very 'mangoey' fragrance.
