Bau Kencur Meaning

So, if I translate the explanation from that Dictionary, bau kencur means:
  1. Just getting started.
  2. Still young and in the process of learning something.
  3. Still new and do not have a lot of experiences yet.
Bau kencur if you look at the English idiom, you can say a little green or a bit green.
