Save the world: Plant native plants




I have lived in the tropics, I have lived in the temperate climate. I loved gardening. Some people like to plant exotic plants from another region. They are frustrated when the plants fail to grow.

I was the secretary of the Gardening club of NTU in Singapore. I gave advice to neighbours from different countries. I use to collect saplings of the birds nest fern. I started a fernery, and I left five years ago. The ferns continue to thrive though nobody had tended the plants.

The water engineer went to "my" garden and took this photo. My legacy of living 16 years there.

That happens a lot. Tropical plants get planted in too cold climates, etc.
