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.

Plump succulents in my garden
At one corner the pitcher plant is pitchering.
Succulents benefit from hot weather
Quick Post: It has been too hot hot hot the past few days. My palms and cycads suffered with their leaves drying out. Same goes with a few syzygiums and cinnamons. But my agaves are very happy exhibiting their very plump leaves. But even when it is too hot in my garden, my pitcher plant seem to be putting out its pitchers. Weird as most pitchers I know do not thrive in hot dry weather. So there are resilient Nepenthes after all.
