What probably amazes Uly is the habit and the diversity of the species native to the Philippines. He mentioned a few other genera which now escapes my memory. I would probably learn more about them when I run into our friendly neighborhood botanist again in a future trip.
Everytime and everywhere he seem to find the romantic mistletoes. Makes me wonder if he is looking for them or they keep on finding him (peace, Uly, hehehe). But it is always intriguing to know that mistletoes do grow native around the diverse landscapes of the Philippines. They even grow on domesticated non-native trees like the lanzones just to survive. With Uly's zest for mistletoes we expect to learn more about them in his future researches.
