I know I should post this on the "WANTED BADLY" thread. But this is a gorgeous plant that needs its own thread. This is a wonderful plant that can be used to GREEN our concrete jungle. I know alot of areas use the Fpumila. I wonder why they dont use the Fvillosa also. Nparks should and MUST cultivate more of this. A real NATIONAL treasure that is slowly dying out............

Hunkebun, I can see you "greening" every HDB wall with this! Way to go! That will be the day ;)/> One practical worry though (not to wet blanket as anyway!), do they repel ants and pests as well, cause I'm worry they attract ant nests next to my window?!

Way to go,
Daniel

I saw this building walls up to 7 floors covered with Fpumila in thailand. Alot of castles and old buildings in Europe have ivy covered walls. U read of romantic novel where the heroine looks out of her window framed by climbing roses and ivey? or the hero visiting his lady love on the tower by climbing up the ivy or wisteria? :lol:/> HDB walls y not? Lets just start with outdoor structures like overhead bridges and flyover columns first. U see the state of the fpumila on these structures these days? Absolute DISGRACE!!!! Wonder if anyone is maintaining them.

creepers growing on building wall will reduce the indoor temp by few degrees provides its well watered. Those with walls facing the direct sunlight might consider this . Not only that you need not paint the wall any longer :hysterical:/>
