"My farm was hit by strong wind twice this year damaging around 400mats, most of which were fruit bearing. Another weather disturbance I experience was the El Niño, which affected the followers and slowed down the recovery of plants growth." "Despite of this, I am still optimistic to Balangon. Not all the time is El Niño, not all the time there is strong wind. Some or many times are mine too. In fact, I have replanted around 300mats using seed bagged Balangon plantlets." ​August 2019
