Successful Propagation of Nipa Palms in the Laboratory
By Cyrose Silvosa-Millado

DAVAO REGION - Growing up in a house near the sea, losing Nipa roof tops during heavy storms and typhoon season was our major problem when I was a child. In a few years from now, we can easily rebuild our nipa huts and have the luxury of warming our tummies with vodka and watching tv even when there’s blackout, thanks to a new way of growing Nipa palms in the laboratory by scientists of the University of the Philippines Mindanao.

Nipa palms (Nypa fruticans) are indigenous palms found on coastal areas where fresh and salty water meet. In our country, their leaves are used in roof and wall construction of huts.  Vinegar or vodka may also be produced from the Nipa flower sap may also be converted to biofuel, a sustainable fuel from plants, which will serve as a renewable energy source when prices of petroleum or gas is high.
