Flowers help purify our atmosphere and most of us take it for granted. The increase of pollution is an actual reality and is drastically getting worse as the years go by. More factories and business are starting to go green in certain aspects of their company but is not enough if human cant unites to save each other. We have even started to use chemical fertilizers to help flowers grow faster. As a result we have witnessed new pollutants added to our soil and water. Organic, pesticide-free gardening techniques can drastically benefit the flowers and our environment.
Plants can also help with your concentration and memory, having the extra oxygen going to your brain helps to make it more efficient.
Here is a botanist insight on cape plants and how they empower our world today.
There are many different families of Cape plants that are pollinated only by long-tongued flies and consequently display similar traits, such as elongated tubular flowers, exerted unilateral stamens, a lack of odor, similar coloring and markings and a reward accessible only to long-tongued insects (Goldblatt and Manning, 2000). Tritioniopsis (Burm.f.) Goldblatt (Iridaceae) is an excellent example of a plant displaying characteristics of the long proboscis fly pollinationsyndrome (Fig. 1). This species underwent a name change from T. apiculata (F.Bolus) G.J Lewis after the plant drawings featured in Wijnands and Goldblatt (1992) and it occurs in the Langeberg, Swartberg and Potberg mountain ranges (Western Cape, South Africa). In the Swartberg mountains, T. revoluta has tube lengths of 14–34 mm and Goldblatt and Manning (1999) observed the flowers being visited by the long proboscis fly Prosoeca. In the Langeberg mountains, the floral tubes attain much longer lengths of up to 84 mm and until now no pollinators have been observed visiting plants of T. revoluta in this area. Manning and Goldblatt, 1995, Manning and Goldblatt, 2005 did, however, capture specimens of Prosoeca visiting the pink, long tubed flowers of other guild members near Riversdale in the Langeberg, but these flies had proboscides only
half the length (38–40 mm) of the corolla tubes of the Langeberg T. revoluta plants.
And this is just one species of plants.
