Cainta Plant Nursery
Cainta Plant Nursery is a commercial plant nursery engaged in the wholesale propagation and production of a wide variety of plants and trees since the early 1960′s. The current selection includes Indigenous Philippine species, palms, bamboo, and plants for use in landscaping and indoors. We could also propagate your specified plant requirement not in our list which by indent order you can pick up at a later date.
Cainta Plant Nursery started as a fruit tree farm in the early 1960′s by Domingo J. Alfonso and his wife Rosita Reynoso Alfonso. Their son, Totoy R. Alfonso, introduced ornamental plants mainly of palm trees in the early 1980′s.
“Ka Inggo” and his son Totoy also contributed in Philippine upland reforestation through the research and propagation of “Kawayan Tinik” (Bambusa blumeana) noted for its high survivability and recovery rate in denuded uplands.
By the late 1980′s-early 2000, Ka Inggo’s daughter, Veronica Alfonso-Olitin, ventured in utilizing the mature Kawayan Tinik bamboo poles for creative furniture (Cainta Bamboo Furniture later Alfonso Bamboo Inc.).
As of late, there was a noticeable increase in demand for Philippine indigenous trees known to be hardy, beautiful, and most having natural medicinal properties. A collection of native trees is included in the current propagation list.
