All of a sudden my Mango Tree
didn't give fruit anymore and after some time, when the tree was already full of this plant, I discovered the "pest"!
I had to cut-off very big branches to get rid of the mistletoe various times. However, until about three years later, the tree isn't flowering anymore.
I found this Malay proverb:
"Seperti dedalu api hinggap ke pohon kayu: hinggap ke batang, batangnya mati; hinggap ke ranting, rantingnya patah". (The evildoer will destroy the good person.)
How true they are!
I didn't realized that I did my BROWN-THROATED SUNBIRD
a favor before I destroyed this mistletoe!
