The Philippines is both a hotspot and a megadiversity area, making it a priority for conservation. The country’s forests are a habitat for more than 6,000 plant species and numerous bird and animal species, many are critically endangered.
Exceptionally lush and full of life, the Filipino Tropico is a series of designs features the meticulous balance of nature within the Philippine tropics.
Filipino Tropico II includes the Tamsi, Traveller’s Palm, Venus Slipper, and Kapa-kapa:
Tamsi (Cinnyris jugularis) The yellow-bellied sunbird, is a southern Far Eastern species of sunbird that is commonly known as "tamsi" in the Philippines. The sunbirds are a group of very small Old World passerine birds which feed largely on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. Their flight is fast and direct on their short wings. Most species can take nectar by hovering, but usually perch to feed most of the time.
Traveller’s Palm (Ravenala madagascariensis) Ravenala is a genus of flowering plants with a single species, Ravenala madagascariensis, commonly known as traveller's tree or traveller's palm, from Madagascar. Displaying big, fan-like leaves, the name is actually a bit of a misnomer, as traveller’s palm is not a true palm, but actually more closely related to banana trees. This exotic plant produces small, creamy white flowers, which often appear year round.
Venus Slipper (Paphiopedilum fowliei) Paphiopedilum fowliei is a species of plant in the family Orchidaceae, endemic to the southeast side of Palawan in the Philippines. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and is threatened by habitat loss.
Kapa-kapa (Medinilla magnifica) Locally known as Kapa-kapa, the showy medinilla or rose grape is a species of flowering plant in the family Melastomataceae, native to the Philippines. This evergreen plant is also commonly known as the Philippine orchid, and it is an epiphyte.
