Purificacion Orchid Farm in Alfonso, Cavite.
THERE’S a large orchid farm in Alfonso, Cavite operated by Cora Purification and her daughter Ana Ruth Conde.
The farm was visited recently by members of the Philippine Horticultural Society which is holding its annual garden show from the last week of January 2013 to the first week of February at the Quezon Memorial Circle in Quezon City.
Photo shows Serapion S. Metilla, a member of the PHS, posing with the floriferous phalaenopsis in the Purificacion orhid farm. Phalaenopsis thrives well under the cool climate in Alfonso. Aside from orchids, the Purificacions also grow many other ornamental plants, including cacti and succulents, bromeliads and more.
