Anthocephalus cadamba

13 posts in this topic

Anthocephalus cadamba or "Jabon" in Indonesian. The leaf looks like Ficus Dammaropsis that can reach 60-80cm length and 40-60cm width.

The leaf thinner than Ficus damaropsis, just very difficult to get FD seeds or plant even the plant from Papua which still in Indonesia.

The use of this specie is for logging soft wood industries, for plywood, pulp and building material.

Very fast growing. 12-20cm per month depend on soil and climate condition. Need a lots of water and sun.

Origin: Java Island, Indonesia.

Popular as forest industry start on year 2000.

This was 1st month after from 30cm seedling. I bought less than 50 cents/ seedling.

Quite attractive as ornamental plants in palm garden

Dear Ari,

They do sell the seeds also. I will find out the seller for you. And it is not expensive. I think in Bogor area. Would it difficult to mail the seeds to you without phytosanitary certificate?

Here after 8-9 months

My daughter Naomi for a scale. I took out the branch up to 8 meters. Because the rules of the paddy's farmer here not to branching big tree that blocking the sun and small birds could build the nest. Often thousands of small birds like sparrows and wren become a pest that attacking the rice grain when time close to harvest time.
