|Scarlet Jade Vine|
The massive number of flowers in the trees creates an impression as if they are burning in flames. There are also other species of tropical flowers that we can see in the lowland forest of Manokwari if we go hiking, camping, birding and wildlife watching.
One of them is Blue Trumpet Vine (Thunbergia grandiflora) flowers that hang on big trees in the forest edges. Their petals are blue and yellowish white in their center hole.

These vine flowers need a lot of light to grow. That's why they cannot grow under the canopy of the forest. They can be found growing in the the forest edges along the rivers or in the forest that have got some open areas.
