POOR KENANGA

I noticed my kenanga look so poor day by day...
The leaves eventually running out.
I only found the shoots and the flowers.
Look... so poor... 
 

I couldn't find the leaves on the trunks anymore.


Finally, I found the destroyer...
Again... a green big worm!
It was similar with the worms that destroyed my Nusaindah several weeks ago.


Another day, I found a similar worm again.
Really a big worm.
They were hand-thumb size.


My chicken were so confuse, when they see those caterpilar

  6. Last summer my red currant bushes were eaten by tiny green worms and I killed them all, one after the other by hand!

  8. Oh, what an interesting site, and what a finding!! Thank You very much for contributing this. This is a caterpillar of Psilogramma menephron, a hawkmoth indeed. This species howers like a humming bird above the flowers and takes the sap from them by its long proboscis, a fascinating pollinator... The caterpillar eats quite a lot too - I didn't know they can eat this plant - but it looks a little bit like ylang-ylang.
