  • 🟡 The plant has an outstanding fragrance from tiny, rice-sized yellow flowers.

  • 🟡 Aglaia grows into a dense bush without pruning. It is relatively slow-growing; so large plants are rare and hard to find.

  • 🟡 Easy to grow bush, it is perfect for a cold tolerant tropical hedge.

  • 🟡 Aglaia has many medicinal uses; contains odorine and odorinol, which have cancer chemopreventive activity.

What can be better than a Cherry? Cherry juice!

What can be better than a Cherry? Cherry juice!
🍒 What can be better than a Cherry? Cherry juice!

  • 🍷 We discovered that Barbados Cherry (Malpighia glabra) we introduced earlier makes an excellent fresh-squeezed juice!

  • 🍷 Barbados Cherry is a vigorous grower that starts producing right away, and by the second year you have so much fruit that you don't know what to do with it - you can eat only so much fruit out of hand!

  • 🍷 Here is our Top Tropicals Signature Recipe -


🍒🥤Barbados Cherry Juice:
  1. Collect berries and rinse them with cold water
  2. In a bowl, press the fruit with a potato musher, spoon or cup, and drain the fresh juice into a cup - put the juice aside.
  3. Add a few spoons of sugar to the mush (optional), push-mush some more to extract more juice.
  4. Add to the remaining mushed pulp some hot boiled water, stir, and let sit for a couple of hours.
  5. Drain the liquid through a colander (you may add a little extra water in the process of extracting more tasty pulp out) and add to the fresh juice you made earlier. 6. Refrigerate for an hour, then serve in a clear glass to enjoy the color.


  6. 🎀 The Barbados Cherry juice made this way tastes very similar to Guava juice. It is very aromatic and tasty, and has a beautiful Baby-pink color!

    ❤️ Enjoy and stay healthy!

    🍊 Remember Barbados Cherry fruit contains 65 times more of vitamin C than an orange

How to grow a happy

How to grow a happy Adenium.

What you need for successful growing Adeniums:
  1. A small pot with excellent drainage, size of root system.
  2. Adenium soil mix. Use only well-drained soil. We suggest this Adenium mix.
  3. Lots of light for heavy flowering. However, in super hot climates, they look healthier in filtered bright light.
  4. Little water. Adeniums like a neutral to hard water. Acidic water tends to sour the soil too fast and may cause root rot.

  5. Water plants preferably in the early morning, and allow them to drink up throughout the day.
    Do not water again until soil dries on surface. Never allow your plants to sit in a saucer of water, but don't let them to dry out too often - this causes adeniums to go into early dormancy. Adeniums do not like both over-watering or drying-out.

    5 Fertilizer. To make your plant develop a large swollen base/trunk, you'll need a good quality fertilizer. Sunshine Megaflor provides all the nutrients responsible for both Caudex growth and profuse flowering.

  • ✨ It's also important to consider the astrological relationship between cats and plants...

  • ▪️social
  • ▪️chatty
