The operation failed. I should have known better. The recent days of relentless heavy rain hitting on the few miserable leaves and caterpillars seeking shelter on them was doomed from the start.
The shrubs are still too small to support a healthy population of tigers. But all is not lost and there is still hope. There are still an abundant number of adult Plain Tigers in the park and most of the time, they can be found feeding on the Crotalaria retusa which I planted.
