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.

The flowering Hoya was in its element
Hoya halconensis flower
Quick Post: I visited Ronald's house and was elated to find his Hoya halconensis in flower. He was one of the handful of people I gave cuttings to, coming from my mother plant which came from cuttings given to me by Nahdanielle Simonnson (of Sweden, from her expeditions). Good to know that other than in my own garden, there are other people having success in propagating this beauty. May it multiply more in number.
