The common tiger butterfly is no longer common due to the lack of its host plant - Cynancum ovalofolium

There are only a few places left in Singapore which this vine is growing wild. I am currently propagating this vine and trying to get more people to grow it.

These are the seedlings I have germinated from seeds collected from wild population.

This plant likes lots of sun and typically grows on fences along the road. It will not do well in HDB corridor unless the corridor gets direct sun for a few hours.

Anyone is keen to try growing this plant in their garden ?
