Most beautiful orchids: Cymbidium. Cymbidium is a genus of some 60 evergreen orchids that are among the finest and most sought-after orchids.
The first cymbidium was described in 1799 by Olof Swartz. It is cultivated in Europe since the Victorian era but in China it has been cultivated for thousands of years because of its beauty. The species form hybrids easily among themselves, so many hybrids were developed in a great variety of colors and sizes. It's an easy houseplant that may spend the summer outside. The genus Cymbidium is part of the family Orchidaceae, sub-family Epidendroideae, tribe Cymbidieae, sub-tribe Cyrtopodiinae, alliance Cymbidium. Description: Cymbidium is sympodial and forms long narrow leaves of about 60 cm high. Most species are epiphytic, rarely terrestrial.
The flower stalk grows from the youngest pseudobulb, is 90 cm tall and bears clusters of brightly colored flowers. Each flower is 5-10 cm high. Origin: Tropical and subtropical Asia, from the Himalayas to the mountains in China and northern Australia. ARBUSTO AMEAÇADO DE EXTINÇÃO É PESQUISADO NO PARANÁ. Planta ameaçada de extinção é reencontrada em Porto Amazonas.
Outro dia estava lembrando de alguns acontecimentos que ocorreram em Porto Amazonas, dentre muitos lembrei deste que foi um dos mais marcantes que ocorreram comigo, pois de certa forma ajudei a reencontrar uma planta ameaçada de extinção.
No ano de 2001 estava ajudando uma equipe do Museu Botânico de Curitiba a chegar até o Perau do Corvo, o motivo da visita era que haviam fortes indícios que lá seria o local da descoberta de um arbusto chamado de Mimosa strobiliflora Burkart da família Mimosaceae que encontrado em 10/06/1914 pelo naturalista P. Dúsen (Per Karl Hjalmar Dusen), que trabalhava catalogando especies de plantas.
Vertical farming. Growing Industrial Hemp in Ontario. Table of Contents Introduction Industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa) is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world.
For centuries, its fibres have been used to make ropes, sails and clothing. The species was banned in North America in the 1930s because its leaves and flowers contain a hallucinogenic drug known as delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It was banned internationally in 1961 under the United Nations' Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs. In 1998, Canada created Industrial Hemp Regulations under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Under the Regulations, industrial hemp seeds must be of a variety listed in Health Canada's List of Approved Cultivars. Farmer's Pal Forums - Why Eat Grass-fed Meat? Mexican group tackles pollution with vertical gardens.
When people think of Mexico City, they think of many different things — traffic congestion, for example, or colonial churches, or snow-covered volcanoes . . . or traffic congestion.
They do not think of the pristine quality of the air. There’s a reason for that. Although far cleaner than it used to be, the atmosphere that sustains the city’s roughly 20 million residents remains severely laden with contaminants. But that doesn’t mean a city can’t dream, and the massive urban conglomeration that serves as Mexico’s capital is dreaming these days — en verde. “We wanted to make something that would cause people to turn around, something that would not be overlooked, and in this way to create consciousness,” explains Mexican architect Fernando Ortiz Monasterio, the designer of seven living, breathing sculptures that have recently sprouted at some of the capital’s busier intersections.
In other words: vertical gardens. But the city suffers from a chronic shortage of public gardens. Seed Saving Handbook: Learn How to Save Seeds From Common Garden Vegetables—Free! DIY Aquaponics - Aquaponics made easy so you can do it yourself - Benefical Bacteria for the Growbed. Bacteria play an important role the health and well being of your aquaponics system by removing the ammonia from the water.
This is not a special or magical thing unique to aquaponics, filters in home aquariums as an example use the same families of bacteria to perform the necessary task of removing the ammonia in a very similar fashion. The Nitrogen Cycle When our fish excrete waste (we'll call it poo or poop from now on because we're all friends here) the fish poo contains a very high percentage of ammonia. Ammonia in concentrations higher than five parts per million in your tank water is harmfull to fish and in concentrations not much higher than that very toxic and would result in a rapid painfull death.
This is not to say that five parts per million is acceptable either, long term exposure would result in your fish dying slowly and painfully instead and they would be more susceptable to disease and illness as well.

Growth It is an annual or short-lived perennial plant, growing to 1.2 m tall, irregularly branched, with oblong-lanceolate leaves up to 12 cm long. The flowers are small and green, produced in a branched panicle at the apex of the stem. As well as in its native areas, it is grown in warm temperate to subtropical areas of Europe and the United States (Missouri, New England, Eastern United States), sometimes becoming an invasive weed. Taxonomy The generic name Dysphania traditionally was applied in the 1930s to some species endemic to Australia. Etymology Rezepte: Johanniskrautöl.
