    Hi,
    i was passing by one of the village near the kalimantan/Sarawak border,having visited N.northiana site. The town was experiencing a small boom in business. As expected many endemic plants and neps are up for sale for a low low price :shock

    Ampullaria,northiana,rare orchids and ferns going for RM5.00- RM6.00 each. Rice dumpling from ampullaria are offered for sell at RM0.30 each.

    Wild edible veggie and fruits are abundance.and 'cos of the fruiting season now durians(king of fruit) are making the appearance.







    ampullaria rice dumpling.Only fresh ones are collected,Prewashed,filled with glutinous rice and added with pandan flavors.Consume by peeling off the skin.

    How does a Durian taste like and is it true that they give off a strong odour?

    Aren't there any local authorities in place to prevent wild collection of these plants? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    All those varieties of ampullaria found in the wild are amazing! They are much nicer than most of the ones you can buy here in the U.S.! It does kind of worry me though that such large plants are being collected from the wild. How many years will it take for them to grow back?

    hi all thanks for the response.

    Omar,durians gives off strong smell,but the taste is marvellous.

    JBL RM5.00=US$1.300. u're right

    Rubra,yes the authority should make a regular monitor of the selling of rare exotic plants.

    Daniel, i was told plants are collected randomly.Much of it are not disturbed.moreover it grows in their own land,they are plentiful [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] .But as such plants are very common(except northiana),demand is low, business isn't very good.
