Saipan, A'be's garden - fireworks

    Newer Older

    My Uncle A'be, lives a fairly natural life on his beautifully tended property. Although he has one of the last tin & wood houses on our family compound, his tidy house and garden is the charming ideal of tropic life. More on talk zori.

    I'm not sure of this plant's name, but it is often cultivated for house plant use. if anyone knows, please school me. The light coming through the mottled green, yellow and reds was almost psychedelic.

      I believe the bottom plant is a codiaeum variegatum - or species of.

      You wouldn't happen to know where I could get some information of what trees and plants grow on Saipan would you? I've been searching the net for two days and only come up with a handful of trees. I wondered if there was a good source of knowledge somewhere?

      Thanks

      Here are 2 links I found:
      www.eoearth.org/article/Marianas_tropical_dry_forests
      guamforestry.org/

      I couldn't find a link for Saipan, specifically, but doing a search the Marianas with Guam, came up with these. I hope they help. Btw, do you live on Saipan? I believe there is a forestry or environmental dept that should have an inventory of plants and species. Good luck!

      Croton, or Codiaeum pictum is the name of the plant. Beautiful picture,breathingof sun.
