These plants grow wildly in my yard in the Philippines. They both bear colorful berries and want to propagate but afraid since I do not know these wild plants. Berry 1 is a bush reaching 2 to 3 meters. My workers are eating the berries despite my warning. They said it is sweet. They are still alive. Berry 2 looks like a ground orchid or a lily. It grows close to the ground and bear small flowers but the berries are so shiny blue. They are very attractive. I am afraid they are poisonous.

    The first plant with out its flowers to be certain, I could only suggest you check out species in the Lepisanthus genus. The link below is in Thai language for Lepisanthus fruiticosa, I don’t speak Thai but, according to source L. fruiticosa grows in the Philipine, and there is an image of its flowers on this page also. If this is not a match. Post photo of flowers when it blooms again. Best wishes!
