Date planted: June 2018
Remarks:  This is the north west corner of our home, by the road side. The plants colony I maintain here against mindless garbage throwing by the neighbours is now upgraded with a Mexican Sunflower plant. This is right under the busy electric pole, but I will maintain it against it as I will need too many plant cuttings now to feed the hungry "Billion Trees and Beyond" project.

Bottom line, our urban jungle Ashrama Gardens (four distinct gardens: Upstairs terrace, inside the compound ground flour, outside the compound around our home, and finally our neighbourhood area with greenery) is now forced to become a factory to produce Mexican Sunflower cuttings for this movement. Six months down, the plant cuttings planted now should serve as the source.  There should be an exponential effect eventually, entire tropical region of the world should have enough and low cost plant sources for greening the parched planet.
