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.

Full flowering supa
The tree is partly covered by other trees
Flower spike detail
Passed by Los Banos because Ime said she was told that a Sindora supa or simply supa tree is in flower. I have seen the supa tree behind Bahay ng Alumni flower 3 times. I have taken pictures of it 3 times. So hearing that another supa did not excite me.
But when we got to the area where the tree is, we were enthralled. The tree is in full bloom. I never saw the Diliman tree as heavily burdened with blooms like this. I left my camera in Mam Ime's car so I had to go back to grab it because it awesome. I had to take pictures.
