Songkran is a Thai word which means "move" or "change place" as it is the day when the sun changes its position in the zodiac. It is also known as the "Water Festival" as people believe that water will wash away bad luck.
The Songkran tradition is recognized as a valuable custom for the Thai community, society and religions. The value for family is to provide the opportunity for family members to gather in order to express their respects to the elders by pouring scented water onto the hands of their parents and grandparents and to present them gifts including making merits to dedicate the result to their ancestors. The elders in return wish the youngsters good luck and prosperity
The values for community is to provide the opportunity to create unity in the community such as to jointly acquire merits, to meet each other and to enjoy the entertaining events. And for the society value is to create concern upon environment with cooperation such as to clean houses, temples, public places and official buildings. Thais value the religion by means of merits acquisition, offerings alms to monks, Dhamma Practice, listening to sermon and monks-bathing.
In the afternoon, after performing a bathing rite for Buddha images and the monks, the celebrants both young and old, joyfully pouring water on each other. The most-talked about celebration takes place in the northern province of Chiang Mai where Songkran is celebrated from April 13 to 15. During this period, people from all parts of the country flock there to enjoy the water festival, to watch the Miss Songkran Contest and the beautiful parades.

Blooming Time : Native, in spring to early summer, the Orangish-red, 2 inch (5 cm) blossoms open late in the afternoon and last only one day. They are very showy. If fertilized, they create a waxy hemispherical fruit that is quite conspicuous. SO LUCKY!!! In Thailand she gives her vivid orangish-red flower for ALL year……yippieeeee !
Culture : Wax rose needs full sun to partial shade, with a rich, well-drained soil.
I found in many articles said : In the greenhouse, they use a soil mixture consisting of 2 parts peat moss to 1 part loam to 2 parts sand or perlite. During the spring and summer, the plants are kept moist and fertilized on a weekly basis. Since the plants are fast growers, you may have to keep them pruned to keep a desired form. In the greenhouse, they will grow up to 2 feet a year. In the winter months, the plant should be watered only enough to keep the stems from shriveling.
