    Ron as Boy already stated, its in Quezon Ave cor Edsa, on what appears to be a mall..
    the new place I must say is better than the previous tho the plant section is a bit
    cramped and the parking is safer since there is an option for basement parking.

    I've heard from my friends that the new location is very hot compared to the LC compound where there's some trees to give some shade to traders and sellers and the temperature is much cooler.

    Hey Randy,

    I see that the variegated Dendrobium I gave you appears to like your place. Take care of it 'coz that is a bit expensive for a normal dendrobium hybrid. It sure registers well on the photograph.

    Boy you are correct as it is hotter in that new location without the huge trees around. At around 9 am it gets hot and the concrete tile flooring heats up the area fast. The only consolation is that it doesn't get muddy after a downpour unlike in the LC. Another is that it is quite cramped and if you have a car it's best to get there early as (free) parking space is very limited.

    Hey Bruce if there was only a way I could send you a division of a plant like this without much trouble and the hassle of a phyto permit and all other requirements, I would do it. Unfortunately it isn't easy sending plants to the U.S. 'coz your agri laws are very strict and your quarantine people are so sticky on plant importation. If only you had a forwarding address with a local cargo company here in Manila (the same way I have one in NY) then it would be easier (maybe??) to send stuff to you.
