Khasya Trichodesma (Trichodesma khasianum or Trichodesma calycosum) seeds. 假(甲)酸漿or碧果草的種子.


Tropical sub-shrub with large edible leaves.  Native in southeast of Asia, south China and Taiwan.  The tender leaves are edible straight or cooked (as food wrap, wrap with rice, taro and meat inside).  As leafy vegetable is good for digestion.  Stems are covered with short fine hair.  Easy to grow.  Best growing in partial shade location.  Small white/pink bell shaped flowers in clusters in late spring to early summer.  Medicinal.   USDA Zonese:9-10.  Mature size:7′-10′(H/W).  Propagate by seeds.

 “多年生灌木,高可達2~3公尺假酸漿多年生灌木,高可達2~3公尺,全株密被短毛。單葉;對生,具葉柄,柄長1~2公分;葉片長10~25公分,寬5~15公分,橢圓形,全緣,上表面粗糙。花序為圓錐花序,花軸長,頂生;苞片披針形,花萼5裂,卵狀披針形;花冠5裂,闊卵形,先端反捲;柱頭球形。果實為小堅果,球形,熟時淡紫色。花期3~5月。
假酸漿產於臺灣中低海拔平野及山區,惟山區生長者葉片較大而濃綠。此植物葉片為原住民常用食材,節慶時利用其葉片包裹於蒸粿糕食品(A Bai),其含大量植物纖維有助於消化,是較特別的用法。食用時連葉片一起食用,具有淡淡清香味,此等作法與利用月桃或香蕉葉當襯底者不同,另有一番風味。"

Double Amaryllis ‘Blossom Peacock’ (Amaryllis) 重瓣孤挺花

This double Amaryllis is tender perennial flowering bulb.  USDA Zones: 9-11.  It is very easy to grow indoor from large bulb, its triple petaled flower has luxury look.  Sometimes flower forms even many layers of petals.   Excellent for cut flower! 重瓣的孤挺花並不耐寒,但是它是很容易栽種的多年生球根花卉.  三倍體的花朵有時花瓣會更多層,很華麗璀璨!  是上選的切花花材!

After flowering the plant will grow wide, slender leaves.  You can propagate the plant by slicing the bulb as an orange, just remember to sanitize the sharp knife and make sure each slice with a bit of root base.   When weather is warm you should plant the bulb outdoors for bulbs to grow larger.

花謝後剪去花莖,它會長出長長寬寬的綠葉.  可以像切柳橙一樣的方式來繁殖球根.  不過利刃要消毒,要確定每塊都帶有能長根的根部. 陰乾傷口就能種植.  天氣溫暖時可以將植株地植或戶外栽種在大盆中,讓球根可以長大.  最好是全日照或半日照處,排水良好的土壤.
