Jinkee Pacquiao recently uploaded a photo of herself on social media, but what caught the attention of netizens more was the enormous plant behind her.
The wife of boxer-politician Manny Pacquiao on Monday shared a snap of her posing for the camera in what looked like an indoor garden, with the giant houseplant in the background stealing the show.
“When you woke up this morning, God gave you a gift called ‘today’. Always remember how precious this gift is because you can never get back the time that has gone by,” Jinkee wrote as a caption.
The multi-colored plant was identified by plant enthusiasts — a.ka. plantitas and plantitos — as the variegated alocasia elephant ear.
A plant seller told ANCX that Jinkee might have gotten the plant for a pricey value.
“Jackpot sya if nabili nya lang ‘yan ng 30k. Kasi last time may nakita ako na white at mga three-feet long, selling for 25k na.”
Netizens were then quick to tag Jinkee as “Plantita of the year” and “Plantita Queen”.
On Wednesday, the socialite flexed via an Instagram story a close-up video of the now-viral plant.
Jinkee is not new to “blessing” her Instagram feed with plant-related posts.
