twogreensquarefeet Gymnopetalum scabrum (Trichosanthes scabra) a.k.a. 风瓜. 2 April 2016.
A serendipitous #plantID for this wildflower spotted on the way to Singapore Quarry during one of April's #weekendwalks.
I'd all but given up trying to identify this creeper ('white flowers with tendrils' doesn't a useful search string make) when I chanced upon a photo of the flowers and leaves in a copy of Jon Boon's 'Little Flower: Singapore Wild Flowers Up Close' in the Singapore section of my neighbourhood library. An online search in the eFloras of Malesiana and China confirmed that this plant matched the description of G. scabrum - reniform (kidney-shaped) leaves, tendrils, solitary white flowers; check, check and check! 🔬
This elusive identification ties in with the most recent chapter I finished in 'Plants: From Roots to Riches', which describes the importance of Floras and the ongoing process of assembling one.

the_buckeye_botanist In the depths of southern Kentucky is a fascinating little wetland in the middle of an upland forest locally known as Curt's Pond. Small, naturally-occurring ponds outside the range of glaciation are a rare and odd item, especially in these parts. It's been dated to thousands of years old and is home to some fascinating and rare plant life, including about the only site in the state for the cypress swamp sedge (Carex joorii). A species much more common on the Atlantic and Gulf coastal plains, it somehow established itself at this interior disjunct site and persisted for ages as one of Kentucky's rarest plants. Cypress swamp sedge is a late-season bloomer and is just starting to do its thing in late July-August when most other sedges are long done. The glaucous-green, swollen perigynia are quite attractive as is it's extremely unique and isolated habitat/location. It's definitely one of the more fun species and stories to share on this #TributeToSedges

  •   wetlandjeff Disjunct species are so interesting. What a cool wetland! I live in the western edge of the AGCP. There's Quercus rubra in the Sabine National Forest south of me and I believe it's the only place in Texas. I'm in awe of your sedge prowess. Those and grasses will always be a work in progress for me. 2d
  •   goldenberries Love this! 2d

matt_in_trees Christmas fern sporangia. You can see the developing spores inside. When ripe, these structures act like catapults, launching the spores out into the surrounding environment.

  •   matt_in_trees @thedevineycode this was through one of those hand held microscopes. Not sure what the magnification is but its a bit more than the 10x. So much fun for $20 haha. 3d
