It should be a fantasy condominium covered with plants, but the mosquitoes evacuated the condominium and the condominium went to the jungle



Towns that incorporate plants are being created all over the world so that you can feel nature even in the city. In Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China, a 'condominium full of green from the balcony' was built in 2018, but a large number of mosquitoes occurred due to the plants on the balcony, and of the 826 apartments in total, they moved in at the time of writing the article. It is reported that only 10 families are doing it, and the entire condominium has become an urban jungle rather than an urban forest.
