Many plants we assiduously and lovingly cultivate as pot plants in the West-poinsettia, dracaena, coleus, begonias-grow in riotous profusion along the roadsides of Bali and have to be hacked back with machetes.

Due to difference in altitude, rainfall, temperatures, and humidity, there's a wide variation in the types of plants in bloom from month to month on Bali.

Along Bali's roads and crowding its markets are stands selling all manner of fruits of strange colors, shapes, and sizes. All the usual varieties known in tropical Asia are grown on Bali, plus about 20 or so grown nowhere else, such as the enormous grapefruit-like 'pomelo' (jeruk Bali).
