The Philippines is blessed with a very high biodiversity, including the plants living in its remaining forest cover. Trees alone comprise about 3500 species. Just to research on a species a day would take about 10 years to finish all of just the trees. Then there are still the shrubs, herbs, ferns etc. Through this blog we hope to introduce you to some important plants in the forest before they completely disappear because of habitat destruction.

Santan de Noche Indeed
Quickpost: I smelled the Philippine santan (Ixora philippinensis) again and this time at 10 am in the morning. It had no smell. Which means the flower is night pollinated, probably by moths.
