In Defense of Plants

"Since plants provide the ultimate power base for all the food and energy chains and webs that hold our natural world together, they also form the hubs of community structure and thus the centers of our focus."

this is honestly one of my favorite pics because why? one tree is hugging the other tree. (this can probably be interpreted as a thousand things, but idk I just really love this pic.)

It’s slowly strangling it to death.

^^

Definitely strangling the other tree to death.

Phalaenopsis philippinensis (Philippines)

I had to post my favorite phalaenopsis species for phal week. Philippinensis occurs epiphytically on the island of Luzon, Philippines. I grow this like most of my other phal species- mounted on rough wood (usually cork) and water daily.
