Title: What are your favourite Plant Pictures?
Post by: neilep on 11/11/2007 19:35:09
Here's a forum to place all your favourite piccys of PLANTS.
Or, if you see something specifically spectacular that is Plant orientated then post it here !!

I'll start it off.

Here's my favourite tree.

A living wall - perhaps one day we'll all have indoor oxygen generating natural walls like that

The "wall" will support living plants that process waste water -- a "biofilter" -- and at the same time improve air quality in the building.

It's the remnant of hobbit homes made for the Lord of the Ring movies in near Matamata, New Zealand. After filming was over they kept them as they've turned into a tourist attraction. Check out Bag end - Tolkiengatway (http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Bag_End) if you want to know more.

Rather nice concept of living - very organic  [;D]

Desert rose

For the life of me I can't find the latin name.  [:(]

Quite an interesting plant in that it can dry up completely, gets uprooted during the many sand storms and can travel (rolling along with the wind) for hundreds if not thousands of miles to take up roots once more again when conditions are right.
Some people have also speculated that this might have been the original 'crown of thorns'

Yes they are pretty plants, but they are domestic garden flowers, not wildflowers.  Those mountains are the tetons in Wyoming.  We are working with the native flowers of that area, so I have some familiarity.

Stinging nettle


* 18.jpg (53.71 kB . 528x353 - viewed 13199 times)

The surface of a stinging nettle leaf. The large stinging hairs are hollow tubes with walls of silica making them into tiny glass needles. The bulb at the base of each hair contains the stinging liquid, which includes formic acid, histamine, acetylcholine and 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin). The tips of the glassy hairs are very easily broken when brushed, leaving a sharp point, which can pierce the skin to deliver the sting.

Here is an interesting shot. This is looking up the centre of a felled spruce. The core of the tree has become hollow through rot, but only the softer stem-wood has rotted away, leaving the more dense branch-wood behind.

Here is another root one - this is a larch and the roots have become exposed after the soil has gradually eroded away.

That's a fine set-up Nizzle. Do you buy insect food from pet shops, or chase around like a thing possessed with a fine mesh net catching your own?

I lure fruit flies by placing a banana peel or half an apple or orange in the terrarium.  Once i see there are some present, i remove the fruit, close the terrarium and have the plants compete for the flies.

Compared to the wild, my plants are underfed, but that's OK because they'll still survive. They won't grow as fast though, which is good for a terrarium anyways cause this way I don't have to prune the plants that much.

Smart thinking. Perhaps, if you know any keen anglers, you could ask for a handful of maggots as a treat once in a while, or even get some from your angling stockist.
