    Not too sure if there still there. It was many years ago. At the time of the visit they were carrying our mining for minerals around the hills.

    According to my sources, we could find them in this areas. Bukidnon, Misamis Oriental and Davao. For last 4 years, a gatherer of Davao from my friend bought 2 sacks of this plants worth 500 pesos only. They sold them during the Cagayan de Oro City Fiesta but nobody recognizes it, most of the people here don't like forest plants they are just weeds into their sight. Those plants were left unsold until neglected and all died out which I'm trying to get all those for free but it's too late they are already gone.

    Sad story ... Yep I remember you mention to me before how the people in CDO (and perhaps in other provincial areas in Mindanao) don't appreciate the native species. Perhaps there is so much of them around that is why they tend to ignore it and consider them as weeds. Perhaps there should be an information campaign in order to uplift the knowledge of the local collectors as to the importance of the local species. I understand their point of view as they tend to get attracted to the more showy and colorful (imported) hybrids but they probably are not aware that if it weren't for the existence of species that there would be no hybrids at all.

    (Bai kanus-a nimo ako balatuhan ug Aerides Lawrencea var. fortichii? Daghan naman imong tanom diha and sparing just one won't affect your collection so much. LOL!)

    indeed a sad story...
    i guess those plants werent in flower and not sold coz of that. here a few were sold and some kept with flowers to show the people, also potted already.
    but in general, its hard to introduce something on the market, which isnt a vanda, dendro or cattleya.
    sometimes i would stop by at the vendors and educate em on the plants, also to the buyers, to give those "strange orchids" some chance of survival.
    good thing though, its not much going on here in tacloban.

    @ManilaByNight - I'd like to see them in bloom first before I'll turn over to you. I will not send you through freight but I'll deliver it to you when I'll be back to Manila. At this time my plants are scorch and very sick especially Eria, Dendrochilum, Phalaenopsis, Dendrobium and Bulbophyllum. Some of my plants died off such as Paphiopedilum (adductum, hennisianum, and urbanianum)...

    I hoped someday somebody would raise a flag for awareness of protecting the wildlife without a costs.

    @PhilsDC - I recall you mentioned to me that you were looking for Paph. Argus? Well, a vendor-friend of mine who comes from the Bicol area just had her daughter bring a lot of Argus plants collected from the nearby Mayon Volcano area. They had to collect these as you know that Mayon had erupted recently and the plants had to be saved/salvaged from the eruption. I was able to get a bunch of these and I potted them in clumps so that they will grow better. If you are still interested, I've set aside one potted group of roughly 5-7 plants (non-blooming of course but definitely Argus). Thanks in advance for the fortichii if ever it is really a fortichii (consider that as a b'day gift - just celebrated last March 18). I've moved all my Aerides plants to the upper balcony of my townhouse which doubles as my laundry area. At least there is more breeze and the humidity is higher there since that area is almost perpetually wet/moist due to the laundry (though the plants dry up quickly and not expose the plant to rot) ;D.

    I recall that you told me that Aerides grow better if they are planted way up higher than the usual and you mentioned to me when you saw the photo of my grow area (townhouse) where you saw that the height of my plastic roof was low and not conducive to good growth of Aerides (although my Cattleyas and Vanda strap-leaf hybrids and species are doing well though).

    ciliolare are tough hardy plants. don't go rot even in a week long rain. i had 50 plants from davao that came together with the anitum (really sensitive plant).
