Learn to Grow your own plants this holiday


by theleaf Uncategorized

Ecotourism is not only a way of thinking or a lifestyle- it’s a chance to experience being an organic part of nature. It means responsible travelling, preserving nature and culture. At The Leaf Jimbaran, we invite your to be part of this reforestation process. Here are some plants we will prepare for you in our organic garden.

Averrhoa carambola ‘Dwarf Maher’ (Star Fruit): Known for its sweet juicy fruit, the Dwarf Maher thrives in warm temperatures and direct sunlight.

Hylocereus undatus (Dragon Fruit): it is a climbing vine cactus species that blooms at night with beautiful, fragrant flowers. The plant produces scaly dragon fruit, which taste like a cross between a kiwi and a pear, after three to four years of growth.

Theobroma cacao (Cocoa): An evergreen tree that grows well in humid, warm climates, the theobroma cacao will yield cocoa pods full of 20 to 40 cocoa beans each in about five months.

Ananas comosus ‘Royale’ (Pineapple): this is a decorative plant whose delicious pineapple is about half the size of those commonly found in supermarkets. It requires heat, direct sunlight, and a bit of dryness between watering during its growing period.

Passiflora edulis ‘McCann’ (Passion Fruit): Native to South America, it is a vigorous plant that produces sweet oval passion fruit from early spring through fall. When growing indoors, keep in full sun, above 60 degrees, and supported with a trellis or stake.

This activity is complimentary every Monday to all villa guests.
