collection of cactus
srikaya ( annona : the sweetsop fruit ?)- star fruit - citrus - chili
Last Sunday we attended a flora and fauna exhibition at Lapangan Banteng, many varieties of trees were exhibited, from regular tree to a rare expensive tree. And the prices were from thousand rupiahs to million rupiahs, there was a tree priced for Rp 40.000.000,- (± U$ 4.000,-) and it was sicas macrazamia, a 40 yrs old sicas from Africa.
And what I like was little fruit trees, it was only 1 m high but it had has fruits on its branches, and the price from Rp 200.000,- (± U$ 20,-) up to Rp 2.000.000,- (± U$ 200,-).. and there were plants that could throw out mosquitos from our home, one I remembered was lavender plant, maybe it's a good solution to avoid dengue fever..
