From November 18 to 30, the Aroids Festival 2020 will showcase over 1000 plants from Arid and Aroids Nurseries at the Newport Mall, Resorts World Manila.
The festival runs until November 30th where their regular aroids will be released for sale including aglaonema and philodendrons, but the rare and premium plants will only be available for grabs until 7 pm today.
As stated in Arid and Aroids Nurseries’ Facebook post, reservations are not allowed and buying of plants will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. For further details about the festival, click here.
High-end plants that you can find at the Aroids Festival
Here is a glimpse of some premium plants that you can expect to see once you arrive at the Aroids Festival 2020.
According to Boyet Ganigan, one of the owners of Arid and Aroids Nurseries, what makes these premium plants at the festival exceptional is that, not only are they tended and locally propagated, but this is also the first time that they will be offered to the public. There are new different forms, shapes, and kinds of plant varieties that only the nursery locally propagates like a rare philodendron esmeraldense.
For those who are interested, the public selling of rare varieties will start from 11 AM to 7 PM today.
