This rainforest flower has got several English names. Some of them are water spinach, water morning glory and water convolvulus. The stems of Ipomoea Aquatica are hollow enabling the plant to float on the water. I took the picture of these white flowers of the water spinach next to my parent's house in Amban area of Manokwari.
Last week I was able to identify another white flower which I saw growing in Inggramui forest. Its name is Glory Vine (Faradaya Splendida). This vine flower releases very nice fragrant.
The biodiversity in the tropical rainforest of Manokwari is very high. That's why the rainforest is seen as a recommended hiking destination for tourists who want to see the beauty of nature of New Guinea. If you are interested in hiking in Manokwari, please, contact me via email: email@example.com
