This blog is for gardeners above, beyond, and below the surface. For those interested in botanical names, inventories, collection and else.

Not recommended for gardeners depending only on nurseries for the practice.

I TAKE the opportunity to reiterate that is not really important to plant this or that, here or there without keeping records for the studious, research or just monitoring for pest management, growth habits.  Unfortunately, in Puerto Rico no one seems to understand the relevance of systematic maintenance in the field or the computer system.

This inventory was provided by
Pablito Bayamon

This character teaches biology at the UPR.  He like Areces Mallea, Phd, is the complacent, foolish, looking the other way academician.
Pablito, no only has never noticed the tens of mutilated trees in the Rio Piedras campus. His inventory does not show anything else but trees. No bushes, vines, vascular plants that constitute the whole.

As the greatest fool, Areces, who destroyed 12 acres to plant trees and palms in Parque Donha Ines as if our flora endemic, exotic or native, is just TREES.

Once upon a time the UPR was an attractive, relaxing green space to visit. Now is just a HUGE parking lot in which the vegetation is just a waste, more cars could be parked in it... Just as they do in Museo de Arte.
