This is a small to medium-sized tree with dark foliage and showy, white flowers which are very fragrant. The whorled leaves are crowded near the ends of rather thickish branches with conspicuous leaf scars below. The fragrant white flowers have a yellow throat. The fruits are often twinned, ellipsoid and speckled green. The seed coat is thin and after falling, soon decays, exposing fibrous tissue. Seeds are extremely poisonous. This plant is similar to Plumeria, but the leaves are smaller and slightly rolled with a reddish midrib. Pong Pong is one of popular ornamental plants which has unique characteristic. Its seed looks like a ball which has beautiful skin. It can be grown in a small pot to show on office desk or everywhere you want for decoration. Moreover when it grows enough, it also has beautiful shape, with white flowers and many young green seeds. Growing from seed: Place the seed horizontally on top of the soil and dig it in 1/3 size. It should sprout within 3-4 weeks at temperature above 80-85F (Will take much longer at cooler temepature). You may grow this plant like a "Lucky Bean" and place the pot on your desktop or a window sill. In the ground it will grow in a small-size (8-10 ft) bushy tree.

Cerbera odollam is similar to Cerbera manghas and in some sources these names are considered as synonims.

In Amsterdam flower market they sell the seeds under the name of Buddah Palm Tree (and there is even some palm tree picture on the package, but not any latin name). They advise you to leave the seeds in the water for several days and plant them as soon as the sprouts appear.
I bougt three "cocos" and after searching in the Internet for care instruccions I discovered that there is no such plant as Buddah Palm Tree and that the real plant's name is Cerbera and it is highly toxic for people and domestic animals.

This plant (Cerbera odollam) is highly poisonous (its seeds) and is used in making rat poison in India. This substance is legally banned in North America I believe, because many people use it for suicide and murder. It's cultivated in India mainly for its leaves that are used to feed the goats - it's not poisonous for them.
