Koronang Tinik



Undoubtedly Aurora's favorite flower of the moment, you cannot go 10 meters to any direction without catching a sight of this scentless, small and thorny cousins of the cactus also known as Euphorbia. The Aurorans love for this flower has turned it into a prosperous cottage industry that most say is better than raising hogs. A plant sells for 200 to 500 pesos and they are now exported to other Provinces because Aurora prices are cheaper than any other places. They are so in-demand and prized that most gardens are closely guarded for fear of the KT-robbers now proliferating. Koronant Tinik robbery is so rampant these days that the local government now requires a permit if anyone wanted to transport large numbers of the plant. Bad news for the kalachuchi.

Yes KT comes in different colors. The fun part for the KT-fanatics is trying to collect all the available colors. There's still no violet or pure yellow KT.

Hirap talaga ng mga taong tamad, yung may mga tumba-tumbang ginto sa balkon na mgahapon halos nakatukmud. Sa halip na magtanim ng para sa kaniya, nagnanakaw na laang. Kaya ang tamad at magnanakaw, magkapatid iyan.
