THE LONGEST ORCHID IN OLUTANGA ISLAND?

The Locals Call this Orchid "Latigo"

When I transferred here in Parokya San Miguel, my staff joined Fr. Manuel Mijares and me in going to the barrio for our Gasa Balik sa Dios (GBSD) re-orientation. Natutuwa ako sa mga staff ko. They would ask our parishioners to give us orchids for the beautification of the parish. Nonoy (left) gave us a very long orchid — “latigo”, as the locals call it here. I was so amazed at this gift. This is the longest orchid I have seen in my whole life so far.

This orchid is now at the top of our langka tree in Parokya San Miguel, Municipality of Mabuhay, Olutanga Island, Zamboanga Sibugay.

  1. mabango bulaklak nyan Father at pag nalanta na madalas merong mga sisibol na panibagong sanga sa mga gatla kung san natuyo ang bulaklak. maari ring putulin at magsasanga rin ng panibago.
    paramihin nyo po para kapag namulaklak ay mabango buong paligid.
    inaabot halos ng 1 buwan bago malanta bulaklak nyan.

  2. Meron kami nyan dati… Nakatanim sa coconut husks sa puno ng ipil-ipil… Sa sobrang haba niya, ipinulupot ng tiyahin ko sa ipil-ipil mismo… At nang umabot na sa lupa, pinutol namin ngunit di rin tumigil sa pagsanga at paghaba… At tama, ang bango ng bulaklak niyan!
