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.

Something To Look Forward To
Dendrobium hercoglossum flowers
Quick Post: Been busy with school stuff and backlog. Doing this history lecture which is taking me forever, only to find out that classes are suspended this afternoon. At least I could get some time off to blog.
Posting pictures of a blooming Dendrobium hercoglossum. I was told they are in bloom right now and they appear to have pink delicate dainty flowers.
Actually a lot of orchid species will be in flower in the next few months. I hope I have the time to sketch them. The color of the blooms would be nice to render using transparent watercolor. Oh well, I would have to wait to finish this lecture and the other stuff so I could orchid sketch again.
