A special opening for special guests and invited vips will be held on February 25, 2015 at the Flower Garden .

Some of the minor sponsors includes Del Monte, Philippines,  Allied Botanical Corporation – distributor of Peter’s Fertilizer , Department of Science and Technology ( DOST ),Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCCARD)  and Manila Bulletin

The Flora Filipina Expo has become a major Philippine tourism event, and it aims to create awareness among Filipino horticulture enthusiasts and also foreign plant growers about the beauty and value of Philippine plant species. This is also an event wherein inviting foreigners to visit our islands and see our wide collection of flora species.

History Timeline

The  1st Flora Filipina was held in cooperation with Philippine Horticultural Society Incorporated in 2006 at the iconic San Ignacio Church ruins in Intramuros,2nd Flora Filipina 2009 was held at the Sunken Garden beside the Quezon Cityhall,  3rd Flora Filipina was held in 2012 at the Flower Garden ( Hardin ng mga Bulaklak ) , Quezon Memorial Circle .

Farm Tour

There will be scheduled farm tour on February 28, 2015

Pet Expo

There will also be a pet expo from March 7 and 8 , 2015 – Some of the highlights of the pet expo will be bantam chickens , reptile breeds from all over the world, dogs and cats.

There will also be a free-daily lecture at the exhibit site. With this, the event is expecting more than 25,000 visitors. Foreign delegates and participants from the provinces will be arriving on the last week of February to attend the opening of the event, the conference and the special organized tours.

The Philippines is certainly is a rich plant habitat and is truly an ideal place to grow both tropical and semi-temperate crops. Some of the rare orchid species that can actually be found in the country include the majestic Waling-Waling (Vanda sanderiana), which is the “Queen of the Philippine Orchids,” Vanda luzonica, Phalaenopsis amabilis and other Phalaenopsis species, the Black orchid (Trichoglottis brachiata), various Lady slipper orchids (Paphiopedilum species), just to name a few. This season is the flowering of the Dendrobium anosmum (Sanggumay) and the Butterfly Orchids (Phalaenopsis species and hybrids). For ornamentals, we have the jade vine (Strongylodon macrobotrys), various Alocasia species, an assortment of fern species and allies, Hoya and Discidia vines, palms and cycads, and about 27,000 species more of ornamental plants.

Aside from species, the country can grow and mass produce a lot of introduced or imported ornamental plant hybrids like Euphorbias, Hibiscus, Aglaonema, Alocasia, Cacti, Succulents, and Cattleya orchids. With this, the Philippines certainly has much to offer in terms of diversity of garden plants for trade.

The country has a high potential of mass producing and exporting plants abroad, however, we just need to identify problems in marketing which are causing barriers in the expansion of the Philippine plant trade export industry. With this Flora Filipina event, the organizers hope to unite the local ornamental plant industry, provide technical assistance and market opportunities, and in a larger picture push forth the positive growth of the industry.
