Wilbert is absolutely correct. We find that none of the indigenous Bornean
Amorphs are dormant for long. In fact, many species are effectively in leaf
all the time in that a new leaf is emerging as the old leaf is in its final
stages of senescence. We grow in coconut peat, coconut fibre, washed coarse
sand and a small proportion of burnt soil, water copiously and also feed
copiously. The minimum at the nursery here is 22 C (c. 72 F) and the maximum
34 C (c. 93 F).
