    Default Singapore Botanical Garden

    Hi everyone,

    Just sharing some pictures I took at the Singapore Botanical Garden. These include Dendrobium sutiknoi from Thailand, Medenilla magnifica from the Philippines, a beautiful purple cultivar of Spathoglottis plicata and another Philippine endemic, the blue-green Jade vine (Stronglydon macroborys).

    The blue-green claw-like flower is from the Jade vine (Stronglydon macroborys) which is endemic to the Philippines. Sadly it is a highly endangered plant in its native habitat.
