Re: Recommendation for Boundary Trees

Safaida and jamun trees are very weak, once the wind blows (storm, rain etc.) branches fall off. Neem is very good, but slow grower. Have you considered Conocarpus? The wood might be useful.

Re: Request ID for a climber species please

It could be possible, either wait for flowers or post it on Plant Planet ID on facebook.

If you see purple flowers it is the elephant creeper. If you see Tinospora type flowers then you are right.

Re: Zamioculcas zamiifolia (ZZ plant, Foliage plant)

Re: what happend these plants

Ficus (broad leaf plant) will not survive indoors. It is a huge tree, which can be 20-30 ft high. The pine might survive indoor, if you place it near bright light and water only when needed.

Re: Gardenias

Is there a possibility that the plants owned by imran are different than the ones by Dr Amer ? Maybe difference of cultivar or hybird or the difference of rootstock maybe?

I agree. I love to collect fragrant plants, however, I learnt the hard way that when people talk ab...
