Taman Pertanian Sabah

Taman Pertanian Sabah (Sabah Agriculture Park) located in Tenom, Sabah (Borneo island). Taman Pertanian Sabah offers you unlike any other parks. With its lush grenery, the park is set against a background of landscape of the Crocker Range (the longest range in Malaysia) which creates a panaromic view of a natural park all around.

This park was designed for those who seek knowledge and recreation. It also provides an ideal place for nature-based activities that makes this park a great holiday destination. You can too expand your knowledge on the taxonomy of plants, and a perfect escape from urban noise and pollution (entrance fee shall be charge to visitors).

These images was taken during our trip to Taman Pertanian Sabah in 2008. They have various kind of plants genus displayed around the park, some are native to Borneo. We will upload the images of orchids in the next posting and tried our best to identify their names, which we find it difficult especially when you're not an expect.

You will find valuable knowledge in the Information Centre, not only on plants but also on insects and wild animals.

The photo above is the display garden of plants from tropical America such as Bromeliads. The cool weather allows these Bromeliads to grow beautifully.

"Fern Corner" displaying some of ferns found in the jungle such as Cyathea sp. (Tree fern) and also Asplenium nidus (Bird's Nest fern). Platycerium superbum (refer to the below photo) or known as Staghorn has unique leaves. These oddly-shaped ferns can be found in tropical gardens. Staghorns can be propagated by spores produced on the underside of the fertile fronds. Planting Platycerium in a garden create privacy and natural setting.

This is Costus sp. from Costaceae family, commonly found in tropical countries and was a popular landscaping plants in the 1980's in Malaysia. They tend to grow wildly and have weak stalks; maintaining and controlling the plants might be difficult. But the flowers are beautiful and in spiral form; so they are commonly known as 'Scarlet Spiral Flag'. The rhizome is used for medicinal purposes.
