Acacia confusa

台湾相思樹, Acacia cofusa, 4 month old seedlings. This tree is very much durable to draught, grows fast, and beaufiful tree, I really love this cute tree, the pretty mighty worrior to green this planet. Don't hear the words of snobish "ecologist" who say such fast growing secies are distrubance to the nature. They are just ignoran or am idiot. The nature of deforested area, in hot and dry places is not that romantic one,


Through controlled watering under the plastic film canopy, it grows compuct and durable for severe planting site. One problem is the root has not established plug body by root system yet, then the substrate would fell off while transporting.


This container is the second model I desighned with 180 cc cavity volume. For these first growing species, 150 cc would be better for fast root plug formation, but we had to design multi purpose versatile container..


To find the best substratum using locally available materials is most important, diffcult and then interesting and pleasant work. We have found surprising material ... (^o^)
