Leucaena leucocephala or petai belalang

So they say petai belalang are good as both nitrogen fixer and fodder plants. We have a number of seedlings ready to transform Seri Iskandar Home. Thanks to Tahir who had given away cuttings and seeds. We are planning to grow Leucaena leucocephala or petai belalang as hedge. I wonder how the hedge will look later. The soil in seri iskandar home isn't too rich, so Leucaena or petai belalang may be able to do nitrogen fixing. I am planning to regularly prune, and use leaves as mulch. Five seedlings are grown from seeds and 10 from cuttings.

Leucaena had been grown for many reasons, and mainly as fodder throughout  the world. The trees are planted in closely packed rows.

  1. Salam bangchik and kakdah. My name is kamal and I live in Gombak. I'm very interested in growing stevia plants at my home. Is there any way I can buy stevia plants or seeds near my district? Any help is appreciated :)

    1. lordcraze.... i used to have alot of stevia plants. Seri Kembangan home offers limited space for plants, so i reduce stevia to three little pots only. How many plants do you need?

    1. Takat ini cadangnya untuk jadikan pokok petai belalang sebagai tanaman hiasan. Di pangkas pendek paras pinggang..., sisa pangkasan jadi bahan kompos. Tapi pokok pun masih kecil, belum cecah sejengkal....

  3. Salam Kak Dah,

    Katanya petai belalang juga ada khasiat dari segi kesihatan. Mak Aji pernah jumpa petai ini yang dah siap kopek dijual di pasar di Sidoarjo, Surabaya. Mereka makan macam makan petai biasa.

  5. Worry over an Earth-wide temperature boost and a rising ocean level has incited some organizations to investigate approaches to counterbalance their carbon discharges. The expense of supporting a renewable vitality undertaking are restrictive for some organizations (over $5 per ton of carbon discharges).
