Question about certain cebuano plants and tree names

Recommended Posts

raged2003

Hi. For research purposes. I would just like to know what is the Filipino/Tagalog equivalent of the plants/trees names of the following:

 

1. Mangungkong

2. Kanomay

3. Bangkonay

4. Botbot Halenhalen

5. Badyang

6. Alipata

7. Kalamongay

 

 

I would really really appreciate if you can help me with these. I have been searching for like forever trying to find any pictures of it and can't find any sources for its tagalog equivalent if there are any so it's been really hard.

Malunggay is the tagalog for Kalamungay. its a tree plant and is a herb plant. kalamongay leafs (small bunch) can be pressed by your hands and extract a small liquid to stop and disinfect bleeding of small skin cuts. kalamungay is very common in the philippines. you can find this tree anywhere. it can grow into a big tree upto 6 to 7 inches in diameter. you can easily identify this: the bark is somewhat off white. the branches are deep green and the leaves are semi round about. leaf sizes differ depending where it thrives but big leaves are normally found in farms.

 

hope this helps

Good lord …………….. you’re not doing research on witchcraft/sorcery are you?????????????

 

Although all the items you listed have medicinal properties they are more commonly used in sorcery, “barang” except the” kamunggay” (ceb). laugh.png

 

Anyway, if that’s your interest, have a look at this site and just google the 2x books. Even if they are not your sphere of research, the books are quite interesting and those plants feature heavily in them.

5. Badyang – or locally called “biga”, alocasia macrorrihza, the sap of this plant is used for counter sorcery.

 

Tagalog is also badyang, commonly spelled as “badiang”

6. Alipata - Excoecaria agallocha. The plant is rarely smooth. It is closely allied to Euphorbia sitiewi* (Euphorbia nerrulata Reinw. not Thuill. ... Buta-buta, Alipata (Philippines); Siak (Visayan); Sinu-gaga (Fiji); River poisonous tree, Blind-your-eyes (Australia). ...

7. Kalamongay - Moringa oleifera

 

tag, “malunggay”

 

http://www.filipinoh...m/malunggay.htm

 

http://www.stuartxch...g/Malungay.html

 

 

Except for the malunggay, im not sure of the tagalog names of the rest. They are not really your everyday plants and its mostly the old folks and country folks who would know them. Some of the sites have photos of the plants so perhaps if you could show that to a tagalog speaker, they might be able to give you the correct tagalog names.

 

Good luck!

Oh my no it's not for exotic folklore occult practices. laugh.png Well atleast from what I know because this was only given to us for research on certain medicinal plants. But really ms.Athena, I just don't know how to thank you for the time and effort. If we were girlfriends I would have treated you out for a coffee or lunch or something. Thanks much! - Carolina

No worries ………… im a Filipina, so expect me to just knock on your door without any invites and expect to be feed and watered. Once my tummy had enough, I will bugger off. But rest assured will say thank you first before leaving ………… :biggrin_01:

 

On a serious note, I don’t understand why you have the difficulty …………… as people say, google is my friend. I suppose, you need to ask the right question and also make sure you cross reference them otherwise you might be talking different things ………..

You know what? I really tried googling those but they barely gave me specific results. So I was kinda surprised that you were able to give me most of the answers. Thanks again!
