Message from Chuck in PR

You got a truckload of different species there.The Tropical Milkweed is just that-a weed here,and I don't mean that as a putdown,it's just they're one of the first plants to re-colonize,if you will, any cleared lots.They along with Castor Bean Plants,can be seen in a lot of the vacant lots and fringes of parking lots here in PR.They seem to love the heat and good soil drainage.I actually like Calotropis,because of their source of origin which is the eastern Meditteranean and the Middle East if I'm not mistaken.Thanks for breaking up the routine a little bit.
