  • Description: Text information and links in Google Site.
  • Comments: (1) A 10 m tall plant was sporadically flowering, which perhaps started in early 2016. The flowering was first detected on 24 May 2016 when the flowering branches were already decaying. Further flowering branches in a late stage of development were detected 15 Jan. 2017. Not a single seed was found, no seedlings were found on the ground. The sporadic flowering has not caused any harm to the plant. (2) Four further plants of the same species, received from 3 different locations within Thailand, in cultivation at Baan Sammi, do not flower so far. (27 Apr. 2017).
