The present show has the theme "Philippine Orchid Species Revisited" showcasing mostly the Philippine endemic and native orchids. Some are botanical species not anymore found in the wild but only in nurseries of collectors. I am always present in these garden shows, but there are still some species that I've just seen for the first time.
Phalaenopsis hybrids, or butterfly orchids
Vanda teret orchids attached on driftwoods. This vanda very well suits our climate.
This is the back view of this design, highlighting Dendrobium anosmum or our sanggumay. It has a lovely scent that permeates the exhibit grounds.
A different design without orchids but bonsai plants and local rocks.
This is the natural design of the exhibit grounds. Men water the plants every hour because of the heat which otherwise will bleach this plants directly planted on the ground.
