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.

Quick Post: Saw this orchid with a very nice bloom at the Philippine Horticulture Society garden show. We can't help ourselves marvel at its nice delicate looking flowers. Ernie Alvaran says it is Rhynchostylis violacea, a Philippine native.
