Thanks for visiting my blog. I just replied to your comment there.
yeah I'm from Iligan but I only visit once a year. Been living here in Cebu for 7 years already. :-) by the way, I commented on your blog.
Wow, you're from Iligan! I have cousins there. Wish we had time to visit Tinago Falls when I went there last month. Could've found interesting spottings there.
they're all around our backyard in Iligan City
They're not easy to spot in the city. Got that myself in our province in Iloilo..
this is what I'm looking forward to spot, but I can't find them anywhere anymore unless I'll be going back to my hometown..
@Cherrey, I know right? Had fun playing with 'em too as a kid..
I am looking for this plant! Good thing you have it :-) I used to play and collect the pods when I was a kid. I love the little explosives..
Thanks for the ID, Sarah.
I googled Mexica Petunia, Alice. But its leaves are not the same as in the picture.
In Florida, we call this Mexican Petunia. My Ruellia in FL is different
