anyone wants seeds of this magnificent climber, hostplant of the Common Rose and Common Birdwing? I've got seeds to spare, as my climber is now sprouting lots of fruits for me to harvest time. Just SASE me. PM me if you'd like to know my address and get those seeds!

let's try to make these butterflies a common butterfly in Singapore seen in urban areas!

You will need plants that especially preferred by the Birdwing
Common Birdwing has been observed to like to feed on pagoda plants while Common rose prefer the lantana.

One thing to note is that do not confuse Common Rose with Common Mormon
The male common mormon really look like a common rose
But Common Mormon feed on Curry leaves and larve look like that of a lime swallowtail, only that it is bigger:)

Good Luck!:)/>

Hey Jesse, pardon my lack of elaboration on scent. Butterflies are very sensitive to smell. What I meant is that they will be attracted to your plants if they have host plants available to lay their eggs and they detect them by tasting them with their legs and detecting them through the scent of the plants in the air. We humans may not be as sensitive to be able to smell a like plant several hundred metres down the road but butterflies can!

That is very informative, i didnt know that they can detect the scent so far away.


Curry leaves i presume is Murraya koenigii, is this a big plant? I heard pagoda plants cannot grow in full sun? I looking around for lantana, should be small enough for my balcony.
