PEOPLE!!! I’ve been sharing this gorgeous ring photo from a recent engagement session in the hopes of finding out the name of this prickly plant! It’s kind of a mix between a cucumber and a pear. Help!

The American Blueheart (Buchnera americana) is rare and endangered in some places, and we found it in a natural Ohio prairie. Isn’t she beautiful? . . . #blueheart #buchneraamericana #botany #ecology #womeninstem #wildflowers #Orobanchaceae #prairie #nature #rareplants #conservation #plants #botanistsofinstagram #ecologists

Overjoyed at the arrival of Emily Dickinson's 'Herbarium' today. It's in Italian (the English edition is around €1000 to buy-this was 40 quid) so will be a languid but lovely read! #emilydickinson #herbarium #poetsofinstagram #writingproject #autumnalreading #botanistsofinstagram #plantlife #naturepoetry

Can you believe these two ferns are the same species? . . . This is Botrychium dissecticum aka Cutleaf Grapefern. This pteridophyte grows in two different forms: a fuller form and a highly dissected skeletonized form! Here we found both forms growing side by side! #botany #ecology #plants #ferns #pteridophytes #ophioglossales #nature #ecologistsofinstagram #botanistsofinstagram #botrychium

Ok botanically inclined friends! I may have made an exciting discovery... or maybe I didn’t. There is an absolutely noxious tree in my backyard called “paper mulberry.” It’s highly invasive and produces a ludicrous amount of pollen. Now that I know what it is, I see it everywhere in Virginia. While on my walk, I found this specimen, what I believe to a true variegated version. I have put a side by side comparison between a regular seedling and a variegated one. Now I have found online variegated mulberry of other species and it’s possible this is it. However, I think that this may be a naturally occurring mutation. Thoughts?? #papermulberry #invasivespecies #botany #gardening #varigated #tree #arborist #mutation #botanistsofinstagram #plantid #olantidentification

Tomorrow nite at Bark's Ecology Club we'll discuss conifer ID and 13 conifers you'd find in Mt Hood. We'll delve into what these conifers have to tell us about place and how it relates to Bark's work #groundtruthing. Also we'll find out about these little pineapple looking things. Hope to see you there! . . #barkformthood #conifers #mthood #arctosschool #treeid #ecology #botanistsofinstagram #placeshavestories #senseofplace

#pomologists #arboristsofinstagram #botanistsofinstagram can you help? These are ostensibly two #calamansitrees, the one on the left imported from portugal, the one on the right grown in #hongkong. The left one is producing #verylargefruit (large for calamansi) that isn't very seedy as all other #calamansi I have tasted is. The orange fruit in the pic (shown with a ruler so you can see the size) is the #calamansipretender while the green fruit is a real calamansi. The tree on the right hasn't borne fruit since I bought it but the vendor says the fruit is very sweet, which makes me suspicious. As you can see the leaves of the two are very different. #whatarethey?

Folks in the Herbalism and Ecosystem program IDing plants. At first glance they thought the plant was cleavers, Galium aparine. But they did their work, stuck with it and found out it was actually Galium triflorum. I was so delighted. . . #arctosschool #botanistsofinstagram #plantid #senseofplace #cleavers #notcleavers #placeshavestories #weprayinthegarden

Asclepias were the first flowers that truly intrigued me as a kid 💁‍♂️🔎 I distinctly remember studying their exotic and peculiar shape wondering, “why 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.

It's hard to tell scale in pictures. Remember the tiny tiny flowers from earlier? Great example. This one is the other end. It looks little but it's pretty huge. Astrophytum are fantastic cacti and I wish everyone would grow them!

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.

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 🤒 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 mama😔) 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 🍃 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
