2016 Philippine National Election : Festive and Colorful

Juan Luna Elementary School ,  830 G. Tolentino Street,  Barangay 397, Sampaloc, Manila-Philippines

traffic is light along Nicanor Reyes Sr. Street ( Morayta ) and Lerma street intersection

I am a voter at  Juan Luna Elementary School for the past 3 election period. The first was held at mid-term or  2013 Election .  Then , it was the barangay election held last October 2013 and now the 2016 Philippine national election. The mood is very festive and there were a lot of colorful buntings and posters near the polling place.

barangay help desk or information desk

Taking a cue from previous election experiences , I tried to get some updates from friends and barangay officials who would give the latest update on the number of people at the polling precinct .  The polling precinct was jam packed at around past 5:30am with hundreds of people lining within the polling district . The school is just one of the several designated places by COMELEC where the registered public can vote .

festive buntings

The streets near the polling places have a lot of colorful buntings with the faces of local candidates.

I arrived past 1:00 at the polling station and quickly went to the barangay help desk which is composed of several barangays within the polling area.  I saw a barangay volunteer seated at the information desk and i gave him my Comelec issued ID for instruction . The barangay kagawad  quickly gave the the correct instruction and I quickly went -up to the third floor of the school . This time, the precinct is located on Room 319 3rd floor.

posters and sample ballots which littered the street near the polling precinct

It took me about 10 to 15 minutes from falling in line to  the casting of votes.  There were 4 to 5 people falling in line and the Board of Election Inspectors ( BEI )  were also very fast in giving us the election voting sheet. This is one of the fastest duration,   from finding my precinct, falling in line to casting of my ballot ( less then 15 minutes ).  Since the automation of the election with the help of PCOS ( Precinct- Count Optical Scanner ) in 2010.  ( It took over 2 hours in 2010 , 30 minutes in 2013  and 25 minutes in 2013 barangay election )

After i finished shading the voting sheet , i went to the BEI inspector to submit the shaded voting sheet and inserted the sheet to the Vote Counting Machine ( VCM ) then i got a receipt . One of the BEI had put a drop of indelible ink on my index finger which serve as a proof that i have voted .

Paaralang  Juan Luna

While going down the stairs , i saw an old friend , a Sampaloc resident and now teaching  at the Lyceum of the Philippines . We had a souvenir photo with our index finger pointing  as a proof that we have voted ,done our civil and moral duty to elect the new leaders of our country.

posters at Sergio H. Loyola Street

Observations– I have seen several campaign posters all over the walls and near the polling precinct . It seems that there are violations of campaign posters. There were some people ( particularly children) giving away sample ballots and campaign posters near the polling station.  There were also some senior citizens and people with disability which were not able to vote because they have difficulty climbing the stairs .

I hope that the next election would be better and Manila will be cleaner city .

10.) Sansevieria bacularis ‘Musica’ A beautiful decorative plant for any household. With this plant standing at your window, you make every pedestrian stand still, wondering what kind of of plant this is. In the Philippines, This is commonly sold as indoor plant ideal for air purification and  can tolerate low intensity lights such as bathroom areas , office areas or living rooms. A plant company distributes these plants in malls and even during plant shows or bazaars. I got our plant from a neighbor which threw away most of their plants, They are getting messy . They are quite useful as their stiff leaves are used for cut foliage and are being utilized for ikebana arrangement. There were several experiments conducted by a lot of scientists from all over the world on the usefulness of having plants in our home. It can be classified as easy to grow, indoor, patio area, partial shade , full sun etc…

There were extensive studies conducted In the late ’80s, NASA and the Associated Landscape Contractors of America studied houseplants as a way to purify the air in space facilities. They found several plants that filter out common volatile organic compounds (VOCs).Other studies have since been published in the Journal of American Society of Horticultural Science, further proving the science.

Sanseviera trifasciata variety ” Laurentii”

9.) Sanseviera trifasciata variety ” Laurentii”

This plant had been a long time favorite way back in the 1950’s and gained its popularity again sometime in the middle of 2000 when Sanseviera collectors from other Asian countries went to the country looking for rare and mutant forms . The original plant was extensively hybridized and there are a lot of cultivar names such as variegated foliage with yellow or silvery-white stripes on the leaf margins.

Popular plant cultivars includes  ‘Compacta’, ‘Goldiana’, ‘Hahnii’, ‘Laurentii’, ‘Silbersee’, and ‘Silver Hahnii’. ‘Hahnii’ was discovered in 1939 by William W. Smith, Jr. in the Crescent Nursery Company, New Orleans, Louisiana. The 1941 patent was assigned to Sylvan Frank Hahn, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This plant is are locally  known as mother-in-law’s tongue, snake plant, Saint George sword ( called in  Brazil and other Latin American countries)  – The shape of the leaves are quite sharp and some plant enthusiasts compare this with the stiffness on one’s mother in law . This plant is one of the best for filtering out formaldehyde, which is common in cleaning products, toilet paper, tissues and personal care products. Put one in your bathroom — it’ll thrive with low light and steamy humid conditions while helping filter out air pollutants.

flowers

Because of its unique foliage and hardiness, They are extensively grown as hedge plants , landscaping and as indoor plants.   Plants are commonly sold at the weekend markets, garden centers and i have seen a lot of these types of plants that are planted in subdivisions .  They have a very beautiful flowers and it is highly fragrant. 8.) Dracena fragans ( Corn Plant) This is a fairly common house plant in the country. The leaves are used for foliage and flower arrangements, while stems with some leaves are commonly sold and peddled on streets as lucky plants! I got some stems from a neighbor pruning their tall plants. There are several species of Dracena that were naturalized in the country and  are planted in the provinces of Quezon, Batangas, Laguna, Rizal , Bulacan .

They are commonly sold as cut foliage at Dangwa Flower Market in Sampaloc , Manila. They are native throughout tropical Africa, from Sudan south to Mozambique, west to Côte d’Ivoire and southwest to Angola.

Dracena fragans ” variegated – albo marginata”

Recently , People tend to collect the variegated forms of these plants and they tend to cost a little bit more expensive compared to the ordinary green leaves . The plant was exhibited at the last Hortikultura Extravaganza 2015 held at the Quezon Memorial Circle. ( Plant winning second place)

7. ) Cordyline–  Ti Plants They are commonly planted in provinces in Laguna, Quezon, Batangas,Rizal and are sold in Dangwa as ornamental cut foliage and ornamental plants. People tend to soak the stems on water to make them root and their colorful purplish leaves are an added delight . In one town festival, I took some cuttings of these colorful plant , since the town folks are again throwing them after the festival. They are also considered as lucky plants and It is native to tropical southeastern Asia, Papua New Guinea  , Melanesia , Indian Ocean , northern Australia and parts of Polynesia.

ti-plant

The plant are eaten as food or as medicine, and its leaves were used to thatch the roofs of houses, and to wrap and store food. In the Philippines the Ifugaos used the leaves as part of the ornaments during their festivities .  There are a lot of varieties and cultivars of ti plants.

Portulacas are planted in colorful plastic pots in Malolos , Bulacan

6.) Portulaca ( Rose Moss, Moss Rose , Vietnam Rose, 10’o clock flower )

Portulaca comprising about 40-100 species found in the tropical areas and temperate  regions. They are also known as Moss Roses.
Here in the Philippines they are commonly sold in plant bazaars, garden centers and is cultivated as a hedge plant. They are easily propagated by cuttings and seeds.
 
Vietnam Rose double petal variety- orange color
New varieties of portulacas are sold between Php 10 to Php 25 ( wholesale ) in different garden centers like Cubao, QC Circle, Mindanao Garden Center ,  Fairview -Neopolitan Avenue , Centris Sunday market . There are single petal and double petals varieties .  They are sometimes called 10′ o clock flowers , since they usually open their flowers fully at around 10:00am. Their flowers are short lived and tend to close shortly at noontime.
( portulaca- single petal  by the author ) grown from a few cuttings
We were given some cuttings by a staff of Joy of Urban Garden within Quezon City Memorial Circle , when we arranged an educational/ walking tour last February 2015 . Most of the cuttings are now grown in a plastic containers .  These plants prefer sandy mixture with compost, burnt rice hulks, loam, coconut coir for potting mixture. Once a week  you can add some fertilizers like slow release or water soluble fertilizer ( 20N-20P-20K) .
They are easy to grow and regular pruning of the plant will give you additional planting materials. In some areas , They are grown in plastic soft-drink bottles and are treated as a hanging plant.
5.) Zamioculcas zamiifolia ( commonly called as ZZ plant, Zanzibar Gem, welcome plant , lucky Plant ,  fat boy, money plant, zu -zu plant ,ever green plant, timbuktu gem,  card board gem , feng shui green, Taiwan green zem  )
It is a tropical plant native to eastern Africa from Kenya to northeast South Africa . Nurseries from Netherlands started wide-scale commercial propagation of the plant around the mid 1990’s and some of the first plants were bought by some Asian collectors during that time and quickly spread. Some feng shui experts would recommend planting them on pots near the doors or openings as it can attract good chi .
Zamioculcas is grown as an ornamental plant , mainly for its attractive glossy foliage and its good luck charms.  It can be grown indoor and can tolerate low intensity light levels.
( this plant was grown using an old leaf several months ago )
Propagation : Z. zamiifolia may be propagated by leaf cuttings: typically, the lower ends of detached leaves are inserted into a moist gritty compost and the pot enclosed in a polythene bag.
When it was first introduced in the country several years ago, One small plant can reach several hundreds of pesos.
Local propagators soon knew the tricks on how to mass propagate them and the price of this plant began to stabilized . A small plant is sold at between Php 50 to Php 100 .
The only season that these plant may fetch a high price when Christmas, Chinese New Year or Valentine’s  Day as there is a high demand for these plants for  giveaways.
I have written an article about this plant several years ago – a variegated form was exhibited at the Flora Filipina 2012 .
4.) Chlorophytum comosum ( spider plant, airplane plant , hen-and-chickens )
This is another old time favorite among ornamental growers . They are always present in almost every gardens and in offices.
This is one of the top plants that NASA recommends for growing indoor . It can absorb indoor pollution and can tolerate low light intensities. It will reward its growers with white flowers . The inflorescences carry plantlets at the tips of their branches, which eventually droop and touch the soil, developing adventitious roots. The stems (scapes) of the inflorescence are called “stolons”.
There are the ordinary green leaves and the variegated ones. Some garden centers retail this plant from Php 25 to Php 75 ( depending on the area and availability )  . Mostly in hanging baskets . If you are lucky to have some neighbors which grows  this plant, a small plantlet can be propagated and within six months can reward it grower with a healthy specimen size.
 
peace lily
3. ) Spathiphyllum ( Peace Lily, White Lily )
is a genus of about 40 species in the family  Araceae . They originated from the  tropical regions of the Americas and southeast Asia . Certain species of Spathiphyllum are commonly known as Spath or peace lilies.
 white flowers

They are extensively grown in Bulacan, Rizal, Quezon, Batangas and is readily available in major garden centers. Small plants can fetch less than Php 50.00 at wholesale market  . Bigger specimen with large flowers can fetch a few hundred of pesos.
 Dieffenbachia
2. Dieffenbachia ( Dumb Canes or Bachia)
It is native to the New World Tropics from  Mexico , Guatemala, Honduras, the West Indies , Colombia, Brazil , Ecuador and south to Argentina . It is widely cultivated as an ornamental, especially as a house plant, and has become naturalized on a few tropical islands. There are between 50 to 60 known species .
The common name, “Dumb Canes” or ” Bachia”  refers to the poisoning effect of raphides , which can cause temporary inability to speak; for this reason it is also known as the mother-in-law plant.
This was probably introduced into the country during the American occupation , as the plants are easily propagated via stem cuttings and are quite popular among city and town dwellers. The colorful white markings in their leaves are contrast to the green color of the leaves. This plant can tolerate neglect and can be grown with minimal care. I have seen some of these plants that are grown as hedge plants in townhouses and in tin can containers which gives it a very rustic appeal.
In the late 1990’s , the popularity of these plants began to decline because of the introduction of more colorful aglaonema hybrids and its notoriety of being poisonous . In recent years, with the introduction of new hybrids  and more compact plants . The growing public are beginning to grow them in quantities .
Leaves of the plant are used in flower arrangements and are sold in Dangwa , Sampaloc . They are grown in big numbers for their foliage.
We got several cuttings several years ago from a neighbor who regularly prunes her plant.
 
1.) Dracena sanderiana
 ( commonly known as Ribbon Dracaena, Lucky Bamboo, Belgian Evergreen , Ribbon Plant, Water Plant)
This is commonly sold in garden shops, flower arrangement stores, garden centers and  plant peddlers . During special occasions like  Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day and Christmas season , The stems are package into decorative items with red ribbons and vases . Stems are twisted shapes to produce more interesting shapes.
Although it grows better in soil, it often is sold with the roots in water. The water should be completely changed every two weeks. The water should be bottled water, soft tap water with very little flouride or even water from a filtered, established aquarium. It does best in bright, indirect lighting .
The plant is sold on per cuttings or entire plants with several stems . It can cost anywhere from  Php 20 to more than Php 100 depending on the size of the plant. I have seen some ordinary plants being sold at few hundreds of pesos during Chinese New Year which is dictated by demand and supply chain.
I got my ordinary green leaves variety from our neighbor and a variegated type from  a raffle draw of the Philippine Orchid Society party last year.
