Both moss and fern are plants that need constant moisture/humidity in their environment to thrive. Obviously, this isn't a problem for moss/fern wannabe owners. The Philippine climate's got your back on this one.

Flowers are the most popular ornamental plant. Yes, I know, some species need delicate care. Maybe you just need the right type of flower that will suit your preference.

Lastly, let's talk about fruit-bearing trees. They are basically the BEST for the following reasons:
1. Fruits – Just imagine craving for mangoes in the middle of the night and there's literally a bunch of them waiting for you to get picked. THE dream, ladies and gentlemen.
2. Shade – Not the kind of shade you throw to your enemies, but actual shade to protect you from the sun's rays.
