Dipterocarpus sp. is a big tree with height up to 20 ft. and grows in Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and Bangladeshi.

It grows well in semi-shade or full sun with moderate water, but during the dry season, it requires regular watering. This tree produces small white or off-white flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. It produces a fragrant resin or wood oil depending on the species.

Dipterocarpus sp. is suitable for growing in USDA Zone 9-11. It is relatively easy to grow in a pot in cold regions and needs a combination of good drainage and deep, moist soils. It requires a mild climate and some protection from cold winds, particularly when young.

To ensure successful growth when growing Dipterocarpus sp. in pots in cold areas, it is important to provide protection from bad weather such as frost and snow. It is also important to apply plenty of organic material that will provide a layer of insulation. Additionally, you should make sure to water regularly, and mulch around the base of the tree to help retain moisture during the summer months.
