Ethnobotanical Notes:
BArk: Magic. Used for revenge or if someone believes that something bad is happening to them caused by another person. Draw or carve the person's body on the tree. Then take the bark off the inside area that you just carved around and place in boiling water. Do this once and your problem should go away. A spell goes along with this and we are unsure of what it is. Informant: Pediro Panuelo: Pohnpei. Male.
Habitat:
