In Hawaii, the three nights of Lā’au moon were associated with trees and plants. Planting of certain types of fruit were discouraged during this period because they would be woody instead of tender, though other types of plantings could occur. This period was also an important time for the healers to go out and locate herbs for medicines. On Lā’au Kū Kahi, the moon has waned so much that the sharp points of its horns can once more be seen.
