White Hibiscus in Malaysia

An earlier post on how a pair of Malaysian Cuckoo-Shrikes (Coracina javensis) was constructing their nest can be viewed HERE.

“In late June 2013 at Fraser’s Hill, Peninsular Malaysia, we were delighted to observe a pair of Malaysian Cuckoo-Shrikes tending to their young. At any one time, either parent would be securely seated over the nest, which was constructed primarily with lichen (above, male).

“Based on our careful observations from a respectful distance, there appears to be two chicks within the nest. Occasionally, either of the chicks would poke its head out from under the parent, resting on the edge of the nest, perhaps in desperate need for some fresh air (above).

“One morning, we were able to witness the return of a parent with a large green katydid in its beak. This insect was quickly fed to one of the chicks, after which the parent resumed its sitting position over the nest. A video clip of this feeding moment may be previewed above.

“Within close proximity to this nest, a small troop of White-thighed Langurs (Presbytis siamensis) often ventured and frolicked amongst the trees. One morning, they came very close and were actively feeding on the shoots and young leaves of a Hibiscus shrub (above). Fortunately, these vegetarian monkeys did not bother the Cuckoo-Shrike family up in the treetops.

“A video clip of the White-thighed Langur feeding on Hibiscus may be previewed above.

Hemp paper - great stuff, Kenaf - already legal

Kenaf makes an even better paper than hemp. The botanical name is Hibiscus cannabis and it looks rather like marijuana, though the two are not related. Buy kenaf paper if you can. The only company in the U.S. that produces kenaf paper is Vision Paper in New Mexico.
I like your 7 steps by the way, especially the 7th.
Tree pulp is not an optimal material for paper making. An elaborate series of steps is necessary to mechanically and chemically break down the rigid source material into usable pulp, and further processes are needed to render it white and smooth enough for printing
