Gloeotrichia sp. colony. 40x magnification. Darkfield. . Cyanobacteria is a phylum of bacteria. As a bacterial prokaryote, it does not have a nucleus or membrane bound organelles in its cells. It does however have thylakoid membranes where the chemical reactions of photosynthesis take place which brings me to the point of this post: CYANOBACTERIA IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ORGANISM ON THIS PLANET. They are the only photosynthetic bacteria able to produce oxygen. Until about 2-2.5 billion years ago, the Earth was a hot and scary place with an atmosphere of carbon dioxide, methane, and ammonia. Once Cyanobacteria evolved and were able to use photosynthesis to take in some of that CO2 and release oxygen (O2), the atmosphere changed from a reducing to an oxidizing environment and this made it possible for organisms to evolve that could take in oxygen and use it to make energy. . If all of that wasn’t cool enough, here’s another HUGE reason why we wouldn’t exist without Cyanobacteria. Eukaryotic cells are those that contain a nucleus and membrane bound organelles like chloroplasts and mitochondria. We are eukaryotes and so are plants, fungi, protists, and other animals. In the early and mid 1900s, a few scientists (including Lynn Margulis, my fave) started to notice that chloroplasts and mitochondria look like bacteria and the theory of endosymbiosis/symbiogenesis was developed. Basically, a primitive (think billions of years ago) microbe ate a primitive Cyanobacterial cell that was just photosynthesizing and minding its own business and after many generations of this behavior and genetic changes in the two cells, they were able to live and divide as one complex cell with its own chloroplasts inside converting light and CO2 to oxygen and chemical energy. Something similar also happened to produce mitochondria but I’ll talk about that another time. Once microbes were able to evolve to this level of complexity (as eukaryotes), all other forms of eukaryotic life were able to evolve. I hope this post inspires you to take a minute to thank Cyanobacteria for making you possible!
The other day on nursery visits I got to hand-pick my very own Lyrata Standard out of the crop at my favorite lyrata grower in all of Florida!! So FINALLY I have a Ficus lyrata tree for The Vivarium! 💫🌳🌈 Swipe for pics😸 ⬅️⬅️⬅️ Fun Fact: Standard is what you call a tree form as opposed to a bush form of a plant #TropicalTuesday #moraceae #ficuslyrata #fiddleleaffig 🌿 🌿 🌿 #plantman #plantporn #plantgang #plantsmakepeoplehappy #livingpattern #interiorrewilding #bringnatureindoors #keepgrowing #horticulture #botany #planthunter #greenery #leavesonlyleaves #idrinkandigrowthings #gayswithplants #boyswithplants #houseplantclub #gaynature #rareplants #botanicalpickmeup #ihavethisthingwithplants #tropical #florida #flogrown #southflorida #urbanjungle

I know I haven’t posted in a minute but it’s because I’ve been so busy with school and I recently had to relocate my plants due to some issues. Enjoy this picture of a random water Lilly I saw at fruit and spice park

INKTOBER DAY 2️⃣3️⃣ ANOTHER FRUIT. 🌿 I was lying to myself when I thought this would be a great warm-up for what I actually intended to do today, which is storyboarding. Now it's midnight and I'm pretty damn dead. But – tomorrow is my day off. So no excuses. One more hour of trying to get shit done.

Cypripedium tibeticum (the Tibetan Lady Slipper) is one of the most commonly encountered of slipper orchids in the alpine regions of the eastern Himalayas. It ranges across the southern edge of the Tibetan Plateau from Bhutan and Sikkim (northernmost India) into western China, where it occurs in Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu, Guizhou and Xizang.⠀ .⠀ This specimen was photographed on Mount Balang (5040 m elevation), 200 km west of Chengdu, near the 4523 m pass on the road to Rilong. It is a particularly nice form, with almost metallic purple flowers and a very broad white collar around the labellar opening.⠀ .⠀ The lush green backdrop and almost tropical quality to these large alpine wildflowers belie the truly harsh conditions within which they survive. These verdant meadows enjoy two to three months of good (and often, still bitterly cold and constantly windy) weather before snow and ice once again hold sway for much of the rest of the year. Nonetheless, the alpine zones of China are some of the most spectacular of places to explore on Earth, provided you have the head and stomach to cope with the nauseating and often head-splintering effects of high elevation trekking. .⠀ Dedicating this one to @mr_plantgeek on his birthday. Happy 21st, kiddo!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #botany #biodiversity #plants #plant #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #flora #plantas #plantlove #plantnerd #plantoftheday #plantsofinstagram #flowers #wildplants #instaplant #instaflower #orchid #orchids #orchidlover #travel #gardening #china #sichuan #中国 #四川 #cypripedium #alpineflowers #hardyorchid #西藏杓兰

Have you ever questioned the intelligence of a tree a plant or fungi? Seeing as the plant world makes up 99.5% of bio mass on earth, and their evolution pre dates animals and they have the ability to obtain ecological codependent harmony, maybe we should really start to wonder..

“Plants of the Gods: Their Sacred, Healing and Hallucinogenic Powers” by Richard Evans Schultes and Albert Hofmann. 1992 Healing Arts Press paperback. Some creasing to cover and spine, and a bit of warping to the pages on the right side G+. $50 shipped media mail. This book is amazing and I don’t want to give it up! Hoffman as you might know is the father of LSD and this book is an extensive look at hallucinogenic culture throughout the world. Lots of great photos, don’t buy this I want it! Been a handful of different versions, this one is harder to find. #alberthoffman #hallucinogens #plants #biology #botany #psychoactiveplants #psychedelics #books #book #usedbooks #booksforsale #quamsbooks #booknerds #bookstagram
Red-Stem Colocasia. These little guys are cousins to elephant ear plants. Just a lot smaller and their name is well deserved due to their red-purple stems.

Taking a plant internally or externally - whether in medicinal strength for acute healing, or as food or drink: it’s very much like you’re trying on that plant, wearing it for size. Each plant fits each unique human body a bit differently. In various ways we experience the synergy that the plant itself embodies. Differently-but-similarly each human body processes the cellular messages of the plant’s molecules, and that’s why it’s such a different healing experience (using plants) than isolates and synthetics in pharmaceutical drugs. We are not so dissimilar to our green friends, we are all just made up of different combinations of the same sunshine, moonbeams, and stardust, and they light up those ancient memories in our cells. Makes sense to me to crave a deeper and clearer understanding of that. And if you haven’t read Braiding Sweetgrass by #robinwallkimmerer DO IT, one of the best books ever.
Oh my f’ing goodness. Today my dad and I hiked eight miles in Cataloochee Valley to see the mesmerizing Sag Branch Tuliptree. It’s a well hidden secret and thanks to a friend we were able to find it without issue. It has the distinction of allegedly being THE largest non-coniferous tree (by volume) in North America. The thing is unbelievably massive with a 7’+ thick trunk and is 170’+ tall but the trick is the trunk just doesn’t taper and is 5’ in diameter even 100’ up. There’s thicker and taller tuliptrees out there (not by much) but the combined powers of this tree are records to my knowledge. My dad and I enjoyed lunch under its lofty canopy and being in its mighty presence. I’ll share a video of this leviathan for better appreciation later on. Good grief...it’s the most beautiful thing I ever saw... #Nature #NatureGram #NatureLovers #NaturePhotography #IGNature #IGBotany #PlantID #PlantPorn #PlantsOfInstagram #InstaNature #InstaTree #Botany #Tree #Dendrology #Tuliptree #Liriodendron #SagBranch #OldGrowth #OldGrowthForest #BigTree #Hiking #Ecology #SmokyMountains #Appalachia #GSMNP #CataloocheeValley #ALGibson #TheBuckeyeBotanist
