Plant of the week.. CM, anybody knows where to find?

Post by cyprusmax47 » Thu Jan 14, 2021 1:42 pm

Interesting article today in CMail. https://cyprus-mail.com/2021/01/14/plan ... l-spirits/

Is there anybody who knows the place where a huge tree of that Styrax benzoin can be seen? :?:

Based on what I have read about it on the CM, and other clues I can gleen especially the comment " The resin is known to give rise to hallucinations when consumed "


Ruling out the White House and Trump Tower due to climate and location can only think it can be Mar-a-Lago

Do I win a prize ?

Well, the tree had to be near a clerical building if the resin is sooo healthy and useful... Anybody knows the name of the place?
