Simply Butterflies Conservation Center, Bohol


We visited the Butterfly Enclosure, which is basically a large net where we could view some of the butterflies in it. This is for both butterfly and flower lovers. Quite small.

Etlingera elatior

Aka torch ginger, or rose de porcelaine, or porcelain rose, which is appropriate name for its waxy, glossy leaves. It's also known as Philippine wax flower, although it's a SE Asian plant, not restricted to the Philippines. Its flower bud is used in cooking laksa.
