Recommended Posts

Assalaamu Alaykum I was wondering if there was anyone else on the forum that like to grow plants and what kind they are currently growing? Right now I'm currently working on some Succulents and Air Plants. Post some Pics if you can

I always tell this to people. Pothos sp. is the perfect plant for busy people. When it gets dry, one of the leaves turns yellow. You snap it off and water the poor thing. :love:

I have one of these. 

I had one before, years ago, but I moved into an apartment that didn't get any sunlight and it died. 

I have a little red dogwood tree that I'm hoping survives the winter. My daughter planted some seeds from an apple that she ate, and they sprouted, but I'm not sure they will make it through the winter. 

I've got a little bonsai tree, but it doesn't grow at all. I expected slow growth, but it has far exceeded my expectations. In almost a year, it's a little sprout, less than 2 inches tall. 

Our house came with two fig trees, grapevines, a persimmon tree, a forest of bamboo, several palm trees, over 100 non-fruiting banana trees, and more, but they weren't maintained by the previous owner.

I'm going to be growing a lot of my own Herbs and harvesting them. After that i will be making tinctures, storing others, and the like , inshAllah. Some of these make a great impact on health, mental well being, mood, digestion and so many other things. 

Nice! I wish you success!

I'm researching the different plants I have that society has called weeds. I'm finding dandelion and plantain majeur have many healing properties as well as nutrients. Considering weeds are the biggest battle, I may as well capitalize on what's around me.

Some of the wild flowers in the countryside are called weeds by homeowners who want only grass in their lawn. :)

And some people would rather only have weed on their lawn instead of grass.

A "weed" is only a plant someone has not found a use for, yet.

O.K. That's 19th Century thinking. l'II admit it. l'm an analogue.

True. The word "weed" is a verbal noun for eliminating something unwanted or unsuitable, such as weed out unqualified applicants.

While "weeds" are troublesome plants (or members). Usually in cultivated ground.

Unless the subject is funerals, the above should be a complete response.

Don't you "luv" lexicographic challenges?  :cool:

Yes, I love words. I often study one sentence and think about why the author chose each and every word instead of some other words. It's fun. 

Have you considered that Haji 2003 post about weed was in a medicinal context? :grin:

Dandelion root has been studied by both the University of Calgary and Waterloo and found positive results in the fight against cancer.

Minced plantain major used as a compress clears skin allergies, and reduces swelling from bee stings. Can be found on the side of every gravel road.

Many "weeds" have been declared weeds so pharma could do their job.

We need to find their uses

The Bible speaks of herbs and healing. What was known as herbs then could be weeds now. I'd like to spend some time with the Aboriginals to learn more about what's native.
