The orchid gardens of Puentespina are located in Davao City. It is also here that the famous seedlings and plantlets of Waling are hardened, the majority of which at the plant production area, Malagos Farm, are nursed to maturity. Nearby is Pictan Farm, which produces field crops together with plants grown for their decorative cut foliage with its careful crop rotation. The King Toto Farm (also known as Carmen Farms) is where much of the creative activity of the company is carried out. The farm is located at the foothills of Mt. Talomo, on the edge of the lush forests of Davao.
In the nearby Pictan Farm family, the magic of growing popular blooms such as Chrysanthemums and Gerbera production is happening. The farm can also generate field crops along with plants grown for decorative cut foliage such as eucalyptus, white and green lace, and Philodendrons thanks to careful crop rotation.
The Carmen Farm is dotted with springs with its rolling terrain leading to the Panigan River, which acts as the natural boundary of the farm.
The farm is a mixed-use area and is therefore not limited to the production of cutflower. Besides growing Hydrangea and more than one hundred thousand stems of Oriental Liliums and Eustoma (Lisianthus), thousands of endemic species-Nepenthes ' truncata ' are also grown here. Decorative pumpkins are also grown during the fall season, and the farm also imports other interesting carnivorous plants to serve local collectors. It is also a game farm for butterfly breeding with a forest section.
Malagos Farm is an extensive 8-hectare property located in Davao City's Baguio District. It is the ideal place to grow the most amazing Vandas, Dendrobiums, Mokaras, Oncidium Grower Ramsey and Phalaenopsis as well as exotic landscape plants at an elevation of 375 meters above sea level. It produces about 20,000 tens of Oncidium Grower Ramsey sprays and 60,000 tens of Dendrobium inflorescences.
Adjacent to the farm is the famous Malagos Garden Resort of the family, which serves as a hotel, park, function area and public stage where the family can share their love and knowledge of the indigenous flora of the Philippines, and sometimes even the rich avian life of the country.
