hi pongsatorn, everybody seems to want baeckea in thailand, i have not got one yet, i bought 2 from my trader khun suey , and left them at his shop but after 2 months they slowly died, even after sending out new leaves, he had a big one in the ground that was really strong, so i ordered it , when i went back after another month that was dead as well . i know some of our members in bangkok ordered some from a trader and they died as well . so not easy . they like volcanic soil 100% , they are good for deadwood as they do not rot, but branches are prone to die back, hope i have not been too negative and wish you good luck . i will try again myself when i see some more . tui has one that is growing ok . regards john
