Weed and Wizardess

Thu, Apr 16 2015 3:39pm
Type: Food

Dandelions are widely known as cute little weeds, but they also pack great benefits and have been used as a tea all over the world for ages.

MEDICINAL BENEFITS OF DANDELION ROOT
VITAMINS Rich in vitamins A, B-complex, C, D, and K as well as minerals potassium, iron, and zinc.
DIGESTION A mild laxative and appetite stimulant. Regular evacuations will balance digestive system bacteria.
DETOX Healthy digestion and bacteria flora will definitely cleanse your body from what you eat as well as daily chemicals.
CHOLESTEROL Lowers bad cholesterol and regulates cholesterol in general. May be a good tool against hardening arteries.
KIDNEY HEALTH As a mild diuretic, it will flush out liquids and remove toxins from your body. Great for indulgent nights.
BLOOD PRESSURE Aside from being a diuretic, it also contains potassium and fiber which help regulate blood pressure.

Dandelion root also has ANTIOXIDANT properties. Not only that, but the vitamin B has been proven to help with DEPRESSION and mood disorders.

Whether you’re feeling weary ON YOUR PERIOD or anemic, iron and zinc can help recharge you. And speaking of periods, potassium always effectively HELPS AGAINST CRAMPS for me. Definitely has been useful.

The rest of the dandelion is also edible and beneficial.
You can dig them up yourself, but stay clear of false dandelions!

I love dull sunrise colors. When the sun
comes up is my favorite time of day.

KALANCHOE TOMENTOSA (AND MISC.)

I had the “Chocolate Soldier” variety but it oddly disappeared… I think our
pseudo gardener/neighborhood creeper took it. Ha-ha, very funny… :table:

ECHEVERIA “CLOUD 9″

I finally figured out the name of this Echeveria! I also found out that the
mother will die off as its little babies grow, which finally explains a lot.

Ghost Plant Forest

Graptopetalum paraguayense, Ghost Plant, succulent, cuttings, leaf propagation

I’m working on a Graptopetalum paraguayense forest!

I’m not really sure why they’re called “Ghost Plant”. Maybe it’s
because no matter how fucked up of a gardener you are, it’ll still thrive.

ETERNALLY UNDEAD

Anyways, they grow up so fast. :ultracry:
It’s been a little less than two weeks, and
the little offshoot is making a lot of growth:
