Yes congratulations Markku!

So there are no wild populations of this plant! Are there any seeds available?

Cool! Wonder why there are no wild populations left? Did you guys investigate that at all.

Hi,
During the 5-weeks mission one can't search the every corner of the country as Vietnam is huge country. However, we travelled from the very north (China border) to very south (Cambodia border). We had to skip oy some places to study due to very tight schedule.
Markku.
