Asclepias were the first flowers that truly intrigued me as a kid πŸ’β€β™‚οΈπŸ”Ž I distinctly remember studying their exotic and peculiar shape wondering, β€œwhy would a flower be like this?” A gateway drug for Little Jeff into pollination ecology and a humbling adoration of nature.

Babies! Potted up a dozen flats of #medicinalplants over the last few days with the #gardeningformedicine class. Nearly all were raised from seed gathered at the #medicinegarden so they have a knowledge of place. The lineage of these plant friends have been with me a decade now. And I love pondering their adventures into the gardens of others! Well that is, when the rains return in autumn. . . #gardenclass #botanistsofinstagram #senseofplace #weprayinthegarden #medicinalmarketplace

Today in the Gardening for Medicine class we took cuttings of #Crampbark and #Eleuthero. Tonite they are swimming in #Willow tea to encourage root growth. Tomorrow they will move into sandy soil. And hopefully in time into the gardens of others. . . . #medicinegarden #gardenclass #botanistsofinstagram #placeshavestories #senseofplace #weprayinthegarden

One of my most precious plants surprised me with a flower today. This is barely 1cm across. Botany time. This belongs to one of the coolest families, which also has milkweed, which feeds monarch butterflies, and Stapelia, also known as carrion flowers. Lots of people also recognise Ceropegia, aka string of hearts, now that it's so popular. Such a tiny, special little gift today! ❀️❀️❀️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #botanicalpickmeup #plantsmakepeoplehappy #houseplantsclub #botanicalphotography #realhouseplantsofinstagram #houseplantsofinstagram #interiorjungle #ihavethisthingwithplants #plantlady #urbanjungle #succulentcity #plantshelfie #jungalow #jungalowstyle #urbanjunglebloggers #plantsarefriends #interiorrewilding #stapeliad #rhytidicaulonmacrolobum #asclepiad #asclepiadaceae #apocynaceae #weirdplants #succsofinstagram #succulentas #succulentlover @therealhouseplantsof_ig #botanistsofinstagram #botany #desertplants #succulentflower

Beargrass starting to #flower at 5000 feet. This plant only #blooms every 5 to 7 years when the #conditions are right. Some years there will be hillsides full of flowers and other years just a few. I'm not sure what the #floweringcue is, but these are the things I like to ponder. Ideas? . . . #medicinegarden #beargrass #xerophyllumtenax #liliaceae #subalpine #mthood #wyeast #botanistsofinstagram #ecologistsofinstagram #herbalistsofinstagram #plantnerds #senseofplace #placeshavestories #weprayinthegarden

Thinking back today to this amazing bonsai garden at Tiger Hill in Suzhou, the β€˜Venice of China.’ One of the most beautiful places I ever arrived at entirely by accident 🏞 ______________________________________ #classicalgarden #ancienttrees #chinagram #fall #botany #unesco #bonsai #botanicalgardens #suzhou #treescape #travelgram #fareast #exploretocreate #tigerhill #accidentaladventure #bonsaitree #fauna #botanistsofinstagram #worldtravel #garden #unescoworldheritage #πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ #treegram #greenery #classicalgardensofsuzhou #veniceofchina #worldheritage #green #travelling

Up the Mountain: Botanical Hike Friday July 27 9-6pm On this journey, Gradey Proctor of the Medicine Garden and the #arctoschool will introduce us to the wonders of #forests and #meadows alike. We'll spend our time high on Mt. Hood, where the #trees give way to #valerian, #arnica, and #falsehellebore. We’ll take in the #mountain air and meet many new #plants while we talk ways of reclaiming our #health. Expect to learn some #botany, #wildcrafting tips, and perhaps do a little #foraging on this three-mile hike. This may be your last chance to see so many #flowers 'til next spring. For more information, visit www.arctosschool.org.

So this week I’ve had the pleasure of working with specimens from as early as 1909, when Edwardian botanists/hobbyists were trecking around fields and river banks collecting this plant as an oddity, not realising how invasive it would become. The specimens are remarkably preserved and have retained so much colour, really awesome curatorial work. Some specimens had very detailed hand written notes, it’s amazing to think that someone sat down and wrote that over a hundred years ago not realising the importance it would have to science in the 21st century. Awesome stuff!

Had an amazing weekend plant hunting at Pulau Ubin with my bestie @botanygeek. After having a bit of lunch with our friend Chris by the beach, we set off on a trek through coastal jungle. It rained quite a lot and the moisture hung in the still air. Licuala palms were prolific and oriental pied hornbills called from the canopy. We paid close attention to the many fern species and Rhaphidophora creeping up tree trunks. Jungle clearings were home to old Kampong coconut groves. Asplenium grew high up in the coconut palms - the pinnacle of tropical garden, commented James. As we made our way through mangroves, we spotted lots of mudskipper fish, a fish which is able to cross mudflats. A flash of blue revealed the presence of a collared kingfisher, apparently common in this region. It was fantastic fun exploring this island despite getting a little lost and wet in the rain! . . . . . . #planthuntingwithbestie #planthuntingexpedition #PulauUbin #MalaysianPlants #RuralSingapore #MalayArchipelago #SingaporeanWildlife #SingaporePlants #singaporeplantslover #Singaporebirds #Kampong #rhaphidophora #Cocosnucifera #horticulturelife #singaporetourism #botanistsofinstagram #botanistsgonewild

My #christmascactus #inbloom For years I didn't know if it was an #eastercactus lol. This was my grandmother's plant and I've kept it going for almost 9 years now (i took it in when she passed away). Now that I am back in my house it has been #blooming again. Makes me happy and warm 😊❀ #plant #cactus #green #christmascactusblooming #pink #christmascactusflower #flower #christmascactusinbloom #flowering #picoftheday #pictureoftheday #photooftheday #plantlife #plants #plantsofinstagram

Do I have any wonderful green fingered friends who can tell me why this little fella isn’t looking so happy? Am I over/under watering? Is it getting too much/not enough light? What does patchy browning leaves mean?! I lost the instruction card and I don’t remember what the plant is called, but I call him Reggie. Please help save Reggie. Thank you kindly. #savereggie

Oh man! It's Monday, it's raining and I'm sick πŸ€’ Good job I have this 'magic herb'. This plant has always been in my house, it's indestructible, grows anywhere and needs very little care. This is a cutting from a cutting from a cutting years old. I was on the phone to my mum this morning (she's having a worse day poor mamaπŸ˜”) but she reminded me to take some 'oregano' (she calls it). It's not oregano! But for years she's always steeped it in boiling water with a bit of lemon zest and honey to taste and it stops a cough in its tracks. It works!!! Only thing is I have no idea what it is? Can anyone help me identify it? It smells really strongly- a bit like thyme, has a velvet leaf (not as furry as a stachys) leaves are 4cm by 6 and are πŸƒ shaped. It's light green with pale stems that snap easily and get woodier near the root. I know a lot of Asian homes have this plant, if you have it what do you use it for? A friend recently saw it and recognised it was the magic herb his Mama used in her tasty meatloaf back in Oz, so it sounds pretty versatile for culinary uses too. #HiveMind #gardenersofinstagram #instagardeners #botanistsofinstagram #herbalife #herbalistsofinstagram #mothernaturesmedicine #identifythis #gardeninglife #identifyplantplease #herbs

Found some Bixea orellana (annetto plant) today. Aside from having an incredible capsule, their seeds are covered in an intense red pigment that has been used as a body paint by native people throughout the New World Tropics. More recently, annetto was used as an additive to make margarine look more like butter. Also, it's been hours since I took this photo and my fingers are still bright red. #botanistproblems #annetto #ethnobotany #naturalpigment #tropicalplants #botanistsofinstagram
