This Cinnamon Bites the Dust

Dried up cinnamon
Quick Post: I was saddened to find this Cinnamon microphylla dried up and dead at the MSI.  I gave this seedling to Sir Ed Gomez about 4 years ago. I brought it home from William Granert's nursery in the Bohol Biodiversity Center.  Sir Ed said he doesn't know how and why the small tree died especially that most of the adjacent trees and plants are alive and well.  Saw a similar phenomenon happen about 2 years ago when the katmon in NAPWC dried up because of the hot summer weather.  Let us keep our fingers crossed that we will not experience extreme dry season this year.
