This plant came in a packet of torch lily seeds. It was obvious that it wasn't a torch lily as soon as it sprouted, but we wanted to see what it was so we let it continue to grow. It just flowered and we still have no idea what it is. The plant itself is about 3 feet tall, the leaves have a ratty appearance similar to a thistle plant (but does not have any spines), the flower is brilliant reddish/ Bright orange flower, 2-3 ft tall plant

This came up in the spring, with other weeds in our newly built home in Maricopa, Az. It didn't look like the rest of the weeds- more like a woody plant or shrub, so I thought I'd let it grow. Hasn't flowered, and doesn't have milky sap (don't know if that rules out some type of euphorbia) It's about a foot tall now, with newer leaves taking on that arrowhead shape. Stems are reddish.

  Primitive Fire Making Plants April 30, 2014 387
Trying to make a bow-drill fire with the wrong materials is a good way to lose your temper. If you try to start a fire with a hand-drill using sappy materials, ie: pine or maple, you will have blisters but no fire.

Here are a few types of wood that I've used or look like they fit the bill.

a fruity taste similar to jackfruit and pineapple.

The unripe green fruits can irritate the throat and the latex of the leaves and vines can create rashes in the skin, because both contain potassium oxalate: that is the reason why the fruits have to be consumed when the scales lift up.

The fruit may be ripened by cutting it when the first scales begin to lift up

The Heath Banksia is an attractive shrub with bright orange/red flowers. It is a good bird attracting plant especially the nectar eating types.

In summer when the flowers are dripping with nectar you can smell the almost sickeningly sweet scent a mile away. The nectar can be sucked from the flowers or flowers can be dunked in water to produce a sweet drink.

I saw this beautiful plant at Frontier City in Oklahoma City. It was quite tall, probably 4 ft. with large shiny dark green leaves and beautiful light purple flowers with bits of magenta. I asked, but no one knew what it was. I tried all the flower ID's but none matched. Thanks! Tall plant with light purple flowers

The leaf on each stalk is VERY shiny and the stalk itself is quite fleshy.

Leaves come up in March and grow to a width of 8 inches + on mature plant and grows to around 12-16 inches in height.
The best way to describe it physically is like a miniature umbrella.

Not to be confused with the umbrella plant which has multiple leaves spanning from a centralized point. This has one lea

Like most fruits, Cantaloupes are high in Vitamin C and Vitamin A. They are also a good source of potassium and vitamin B6.
It is a good idea to wash cantaloupe thoroughly before cutting into it, as the outside surface can contain Salmonella and other harmful bacteria.
The fruit is usually kept from directly touching ground to help prevent rot. This can be achieved by putting cardboard, stra
