    It is exciting once your dance teacher notifys you that it’s time for it to start dancing ballet throughout pointe shoes. Brand-new, shiny, pink silk pointe shoes are generally beautiful. Every student requires an idea involving what Vibram Fivefingers should seek 


    out in getting exactly the right fit. Hopefully the ballet store can have an area involving floor for installing ballet pointe sneakers, and a ballet barre (bar) or chair time for use for assist.

    As a biodiversity hotspot, the Philippines is home to 8,000 flowering plants and 4,500 non-flowering plants–and it is estimated that 30-40% of these species are endemic. Here are a couple unique ones:

    The carnivorous Corpse Flower mimics the smell and warmth of a rotting animal carcass in order to attract flies. It will only bloom about every five years.

    Monkey cups are another carnivorous flower, filled with a sweet smelling substance that lures flies into its sticky interior. Once trapped, the monkey cup victims are broken down by the digestive enzymes in these juices.

    First of all, at least two-thirds out of the more than 10,000 vascular plant species in the Philippines are endemic. The Philippines is located in a tropical area and its more isolated location has allowed the country to flourish in a high level of endemism. Here are just some of the many plants that can only be found in the diverse country:

    1.) Paphiopedilum fowlie-  This beautiful plant is native to the island Palawan of the Philippines. Unfortunately, this species is threatened due to lost of habitat because of deforestation. These plants thrive in the tropical and subtropical forests.

    2.) Paphiopedilum acmodontum

    3.) Paphiopedilum ciliolare- Also thrives in tropical and subtropical forests and is threatened by the loss of habitat.

    4.) Sacred Garlic Pear (Crateva religiosa)- Also often referred to as the Spider Tree because of its long spidery stamens, this plant is beautiful and is sometimes grown for its fruit.

    5.) Sea Poison Tree (Barringtonia asiatica)

    6.) Spoon-leaved Sundew (Drosera spatulata)

    7.) Rafflesia schadenbergiana

    8.) Peltate Nephentes (Nepenthes peltata)

    9.) Sibuyan Nephentes (Nepenthes sibuyanensis)

    10.) Burke Nephentes (Nepenthes burkei)

    11.) Nepenthes ventricosa

    12.) Argent Nephentes (Nepenthes argentii)

    Those are just a few out of the many endemic plants of the Philippines.
