There is another plant show here and this time its by the Philippine Orchid Society so as expected this show is going to be more "flowery".

Personally I think this is a less interesting plant show but I think a lot on this board will still like the colorful flowers displayed. I can't stop taking pictures anyway so I will just dump them all here.

Yeah this plant show didn't really have a lot by way of the rare and exotic stuff. Most of the plants/ flowers displayed areteh commercial varieties but they do make an awesome display when you put dozens of them blooming together.

I saw this variegated Chamaedorea Seifrizii

The asking price was P75,000 . A little

over $1,500. But the vendor says I I was really interested I could haggle a bit.

I wasn't really interested at that price range.

Thanks for posting, Gene. I always enjoy your show photos. So many different things in the Philippines, and I also like how they arrange the plants. It is a work of art :).

Regards, Ari :)

Thanks for the pics Gene! I would say that variegated C. sefrezii is a fair price at $1500US

You know I always appreciate your show pics... so much variegation :drool:

Gene,

That's some incredible plant material! There's things we don't even see here in south Florida. I wish the Philippines were not so far away. :(

Thanks for sharing all these.

Jeff
