Pokok karupulai yg.kecik ni tumbuh sendiri dengan izin Allah jua.Burung2 menabur apa yg.mereka makan di sini.Jenis ni mempunyai daun yg.lebar. This young curry bush grew by itself ,in Allah’s will of course.It  sprouted from the droppings of birds.It has broad leaves.

Kalau tak nampak ulat ni,boleh botak pokok karupulai ni dibuatnya. Penyamaran yang baik!. If you failed to notice this caterpillar, it can eat up the whole curry bush overnight. Nice camouflage!
