My friend says the girth at 7 feet is about 3 feet and the trees are over50 feet in height. It is clear to me now that he has no intention of selling them. I don't know why as they have a son struggling with his college fees and my friend goes around in a beat up truck. But he is curious about the price. His wife is on the war path, hehe...
In the meantime I am looking for a big Mee tree for my roof.

About Sandlewood. There are roving buyers who visit the Belihuloya area and during those visits any unguarded Sandlewood disappears and I think for illegal export.

Recently I found some. leisure sector investment projects at www.ideahomes.lk. It seems a novel concept to Sri Lanka. But I have no idea about this company. If any one know any thing, please share.
According to them you can own a 3 star luxury villa at St Clair falls site, for $ 15 000-20000 on profit sharing basis while they manage and market the properties.you can recover the investment in 3-4 years depending on occupancy.

Does anyone have any idea about horticulture industry. There are many companies do horticulture in north western province. Where can I get more information about this?

There is a separate unit in EDB for foliage business. They have some info and they will assist you to find buyers also.
Main thing is first you will have to grow few acres of foliage as they need continuous supply.

In NCP I have seen one person who exports cut foliage many years ago. I think he is still doing the business. There were about 30 girls working in his premises packing the stuff.
It was called " Decor Foliage" Address: "Rathnasiriya”, Meegahamula Watta, Pannala, Ibbagamuwa,,Sri Lanka
Proprietor: Mr. Gamini Rathnasiri - Managing Director Phone 94-37-225 9637

I heard there are many exporters in Gampaha area. They buy out-growers products.

In addition, I can give you some idea about pricing.

Some times ago I grew cane palm (Dypsis_lutescens) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dypsis_lutescens1.jpg) as a cut foliage. Collectors came to our place and paid Rs. 2.50 - 4.00 to us per branch. In Dubai I saw in the flower shops they sell it @ 2 Dirhams. I.e. 60.00 LKR. Naturally anyone will take this as a lucrative if we can export.
But this is how it happens:
Collectors sell it to the local exporter @ 5/- to 6/- . After cleaning and packing they export it by airfreight and main importer get it @ avr 15/- 20/- Rs. They distribute it to the local sellers in that country @ 30/- . the retail man sell it to the customers @ 60 /- . Transportation, salaries, tax , profits and other overheads included at each stage.
Somehow if we can become the grower and the retail seller that is nice.

If you grow these plants to sell locally as pot plants, a good business , you have to buy seedlings and pot them . They will take 8 months - 15 months to grow to a 2.5 ft bush.
If you plant 4-5 seedlings in a 10inch "Mal Pochchiya" the cost will be 75/-100/- . you can sell it 350 -500. after 1 year.
Bigger plants 1.5 year-2 year aged go over 2500/- @ Battaramulla plant shops. ( Former Mal Pradarshanaya at Wiharamahadevi park) Sometimes a single buyer buy 10- 15 plants @ 2500 each.

I know one person who supplied cane palm seedlings 15 years ago. I do not know his current position.
Mr. Nalaka Eknaligoda, Nilanka Nursery, 69/1, kandy road, Kurunegala. 0372233673 .

You can have a general idea if you visit Battaramulla weekend flower show near Waters Adge. Go and meet Mrs. Soma Nethsinghe. She is a good lady. (Some people may mislead you or lot of " Gurumushti")

In addition there are many other popular plant varieties including Aglonemas, orchids and Anthurium. Some people visit Thailand , bring plants and sell here at higher prices.

If you need info about orchid growing let me know. In 1980s I exported my flowers through Lakmalsala .
A flower called gerberra is popular these days. Some people go to Pune in India to bring Gerberra plants. Hayleys also breed and sell them in SL.

Orchid growing is one of the highest return generators in agriculture.
Similarly, putting money to Orchid growing in commercial level is one of highest risk taking investment you can do.

Hence you have to have a thorough knowledge and experience about it before investing in larger scale.
Actually in that sense it is same like stock trading.

Best way is to start slowly in small scale , get experience and then expand it gradually. You can visit farms, exhibitions, talk with people while studying it. It is good if you can visit Chatuchak market in Bangkok some day specially in a Wednesday.

I want to reply you like this, mainly because, these orchids are very much vulnerable to decieses like roor rot, top rot , bacterial attacts and various pest attacks. Not like in other crops, here it is very diffucult to locate and notice an attack before it damaging lot of plants.
For eg. root rot spread inside the entire plant first by destroying all the roots and then damaging psedobulbs while the leaves stay in very much healthy looking state.
At such stage you cannot do anythng but remove the plant. If this happen to the entire bed/lot you loose your money and hopes.

Hence first, you have to have some knowledge and experience about this cultivation . Continuous watching and learning is needed; until you are confident enough to invest in large scale.
There are lot of things books do not say.

Damages due to rain is also a big problem. Too much dampness in rooting media will rot your plants, definitely.
If you can invest in toatally or partially controlled environment that is worthwhile. Specially if you can protect plants from rain a big problm is over and your income will increase.

Later today or tmr, I will put here some info/replies to your questions.

මිට අවුරුදු 20 කට පමණ පෙර මගෙන් උපදෙස් අරන් මේ වැඩේ පටන්ගත්ත අය අතුරින් එක්කෙනෙක් දේශීය වෙළෙඳ පොළ අල්ලාගෙන පස්සේ එක්ස්පෝට් කරලා අද ලංකාවේ කෝටි පතියෙක් වෙච්ච කෙනෙක් ඉන්නවා. හැබැයි දැන්නම් එයා ට ඒ කාලේ මතක නැහැ. No contacts now. But, I can guide you to the people who are selling seedlings ( including that guy) .

If you are in no hurry, willing to learn by mistakes ( there will be lot of mistakes + losses) you can become an expert on this. Even if you fail in first instances, that knowledge will pay you in future. - same like stock market.

Hi Stumpy my friend, Green79, appuhami & others,

Thank you. Nice to hear from you.

Few years ago, I tried something similar to Green's suggestion but did not workout due to many reasons. It was an LLC , initially done by me, then offer shares to others who are interested to join as contributing holders.

Sinhalese names are tricky as these are not native to sri lanka. Sometime they might not have a common usage name in Sinhalese. Need to research further. Worthinton's Ceylon Trees book would have been handy but then again trees not native Sri Lanka will be a problem.



Walnut - Juglans regia - sinhalese name Aettakottam?
Rosewood- Dalbergia latifolia
Maple - Acer

I also have the same data as slstock given for Nadun and Burutha

For Nadun we can't find any English term. Nadun is not a Sinhala name, it is common term in Asia. It was (name ?) introduced to LK by Dutch ppl.

For Indian Rosewood (Dalbergia lantifolia) I have no Sinhala name. BTW, there is a variety called Dalbergia lanceolaria which can be found locally in LK; it is called Bol Maara බොල් මාර

For Walnut ඇට කොට්ටන් is given in books.

Most of the wood names used for furniture during the dutch era can be found in the book "R. L. Brohier’s Furniture of the Dutch Period".

Chinwi,

Good as you just confirmed what I found about Rosewood and Walnut ( sinhalese name "Aettakottam" which is apparently not used much by people).

Indian name for Rosewood tree (Dalbergia lantifolia) is 'beete" or "sitsal" according to research.


Maple is a mystery yet as it belong to Acer Genus which apparently has 100s of species. No sinhalese name can be traced yet. If someone knows please post.
