Silk Cotton Tree flowers are one of the most favored by bees because apart from producing abundant nectar, Silk Cotton Tree also produces a lot of flower pollen / bee pollen. Silk Cotton Tree are also known as a rich source of propolis. Because of this, beekeepers consider opium flowers to be a beekeeping paradise.

The presence of kapok plants in Indonesia has recently become very small in number. Previously, for centuries, people in the archipelago used Silk Cotton Tree flowers, known as kapok, for all purposes for mattresses, pillows, sitting mats and even rugs.

Since Indonesian people started using spring beds for mattresses, started using sponges for sofas in the living room and started to recognize goose feathers or feathers for pillows and bolsters, the existence of kapok trees began to be marginalized. This is made worse by the fragile and soft nature of kapok wood, so it cannot be relied on to make luxury furniture.

The lifestyle of today’s people who often shop online also threatens the existence of kapok trees because more and more of them are being cut down to be used as pallets for shipping goods.
