Philippine Hortikultural Society. Inc. Invites everyone on HortiKultura Filipina 2018

By Mhownai - November 28, 2017

On November 17, social media influencers and media gathered at Quezon Memorial Circle for the press launch of the Philippine Hortikultural Society Incorporated's event next year- Hortikultura Filipina 2018.

What is the HortiKultura Filipina 2018 all about?

It is a horticultural festival celebrated annually in the Philippines wherein indigenous and plant hybrids are being showcased in the Quezon Memorial Circle (QMC) in Metro Manila and the entire country.

It is the largest, most prestigious and most updated horticultural event in the country. It aims to take up the Philippines' journey as they will showcase our very own Philippine flora, endemic and indigenous plants and locally developed hybrids. Thus, it also has a purpose to show that the Philippines has the most diverse horticultural centres in Asia and the world.

In the press launch, several PHSI members talked about very interesting topics for plant lovers and garden enthusiasts.

Mr Zac Sarian provided different information how you can turn your passion in plants into business as a way of making 'decorative plants' he also gave a glimpse of how to start your very own gardening business- this is very good for potential entrepreneur out there.

Then Mr Boyet Ganigan talked about different trends of gardening. This is actually my first time to hear about setting up a garden in your condo, it may seem to be impossible but it's already made possible because of their creative minds.

Ms Audrey Cabato unfolded the next year's event activities which I'm really sure you'll enjoy. Some of them are:
  • Photo Exhibit od Philippine Orchid Species
  • Ikebana-Ikenobo Exhibit
  • Acoustic Nights
  • Installation Art
  • Orchid Aseptic Culture Exhibit
  • Street Dancing
  • Garden Tours
  • Daily Raffles
  • Terrarium, Aquascape and Vivarium Exhibit
  • Commercial Exhibit (Trade Fair)
  • Edible Food Landscape
  • Bonsai Exhibit and Competition
  • Flower Arrangement
  • Ornamental Potted Plants Competition
  • Group Landscape
  • Dish Garden Exhibit and Competition
  • Corporate Landscape
Quite a handful, right? But wait. If you think they will just show you different kinds of plants and flowers, you may also join their Daily Lectures and Workshops that will feed your hungry minds in terms of gardening.

Of course, the press launch won't be complete without the most awaited part- food. They showcased classic Filipino delicacies with a twist. One of my most favourite is Pancit Puti with wansoy and kamias, Crispy Puso ng Saging and the ever famous Turon with macapuno. Yum!

The PHSI team were so nice to showcase a little bit of what HortiKultura Filipina 2018 will offer like the terrarium exhibit, bonsai exhibit which is a proof that horticulture is a living art. WOW!

What are you waiting for? See you on Hortikultura Filipina 2018 on February 2 to 11, 2018 at Quezon Memorial Circle, Quezon City.
