The name Kalanchoe comes from a phonetic transcription of the Chinese words 'Kalan Chauhuy' meaning "that which falls and grows", likely in reference to the plantlets that drop from many of the species but others believe it from the ancient Indian words 'kalanka' meaning "spot" or "rust" and 'chaya' meaning "glossy" in reference to the reddish glossy leaves of the Indian species Kalanchoe. It is typically grown indoors as a houseplant which requires warm temperatures from 60 to 85 degrees and is very sensitive to the cold. Too high or low temperature may cause flower to die. Kalanchoe are naturally spring bloomers. When grown outside the plant thrives on most soils.
In the selection “My god, my lotus” both the girl speaks and then the boy. This poem is full of symbolism. In the title which is also the first line of the poem, the girl calls the boy her god and lotus (Puchner 28). In Egyptian culture the lotus flower was very meaningful. It was considered to be the symbol of rebirth, purity, peace and serenity because it comes from muddy waters yet still clean and unblemished.
However, combined transmitted light and polarizing microscopic observations together revealed additional characters such as the pattern of leaf arrangement, cushions and keel size, shape of leaf apices and bases. Since cuticular are not preserved, specimens are assigned to their genus level only. Both specimens have leafy axes with imbricate, spirally arranged scale like leaves. This indicates their affinity to family Araucariaceae (Araucaria) or Cheirolepidiaceae. On the basis of systematic affinity the specimens could be linked to the extinct conifer family; Cheirolepidiaceae, one of the dominant plant group during the early- mid Jurassic in the Gondwana land mass.
Lemon Grass is also found in calid climate such as Thailand and China. Lemon grass is known to treat breast cancer. It is also known to treat many other things such as colds, and coughs. Periwinkle is a biennial, tracheophyte herbaceous plant in the dogbane family that was primitively adapted to the island of Madagascar. It has been widely civilized for hundreds of years.
Floriculture is the field that we immediately recall when we think of orchid plants. However, the genus Vanilla is the only one of the family that is of direct economic interest. Some rural societies in Turkey and Greece still use salep, a staple flour made from the tubers of certain orchids, especially those included in the genus Orchis. Although the use of orchids for this purpose is rather localised, it is bringing some species of this genus to the edge of extinction (Baumann, 1996). The vanilla plant is a vine, native from the tropical forests of Central America and some areas of South America.
Often, and in the case of Jezebel, it is written that a woman enhances her eyes and lips in attempts to seduce illicit lovers. Ancient civilizations are noted for their use of cosmetics in both men and women. During the Hellenistic Age, ancient Greeks and Romans used skin creams made of beeswax and olive oil and bathed in rosewater and frankincense for their aromatic appeal. Even Alexander the Great is said to have developed an affinity with makeup and perfumes after a campaign through Asia. Egyptians used natural resources like kohl and green malachite to create eyeliner that they believed had magical and healing powers.
\Spirulina—The Nutritious Superfood It is the most nutritious, concentrated whole food known to humankind. It has a rich, vibrant history, and occupies an intriguing biological and ecological niche in the plant kingdom. Civilizations of the world have cultivated spirulina and cherished its benefits be it the Aztecs of Mexico or the native people of Chad, Africa. It is believed that spirulina, was discovered by Dr. Clement of the Institute of French Petroleum (IFP) in 1962. Spirulina is a blue-green alga which is spiral in shape and grows in freshwater lakes, springs and salt water.
.” Of particular interest to Giovanni is “one shrub in particular, set in a marble vase in the midst of the pool, that bore a profusion of purple blossoms, each of which had the lustre and richness of a gem.” As striking as the plant of the purple gems is “a tall, emaciated, sall... ... middle of paper ... ...ed nature,” at the feet of her father and Giovanni. Beatrice, in the course of the story, passes from isolation to love and to a full realization of the truth, thus she is very dynamic; not static like her father. Giovanni is equally dynamic in developing into a loving person, and then reverting into an almost hating person because of the acquired malady. WORKS CITED Abrams, M. H.

They are distinctive because they have one of the oldest fossils being over 3.5 billion years old. Cyanobacterium have an immense importance because they shaped the course of evolution by being an important maker of nitrogen fertilizer which make beans and rice. The planets oxygen atmosphere is because of cyanobacteria. Since before time we didn’t have much chemistry in the atmosphere that was made for life. Another importance would be the origin of plants.
The genus contains 196 various species and is distributed throughout the warm regions of Asia (58 species), America (64) and Africa (75). The Strychnos alkaloids were originally classified based solely on their geographic origin. Asian Strychnos was thought to contain strychnine and the American Strychnos were thought to contain curarizing ammonium salts (6 p.2). Plants of the genus Strychnos have opposite leaves and bear cymes of white or yellowish flowers that have a four-lobed or five-lobed calyx, a four-parted or five-parted corolla, five stamens, a solitary pistil and bears fruit in the form of a berry. The seeds and bark of many plants in this genus contain the powerful poison (4 p.2).
