Collecting tropical and exotic plants has increased in popularity in the past year, so just a few thoughts: The community in Singapore that offers these highly desired specimens is small, so it goes beyond being transactional, but instead, is a study in relationship building. To those who recently got “into” it, get to know the growers, collectors, and enthusiasts, and avoid being a cheapskate.
There is more to building a collection than simply buying plants online, at a comfortable air-conditioned boutique, or visiting Gardener’s Day Out “when it’s convenient”. And it sure as hell doesn’t happen overnight. Get out there – explore, get dirty, ask questions, meet people, and for Christ’s sake do your damn research.
