長柱茅膏菜 drosera oblanceolata

茅膏菜屬,英文學名 drosera 的俗名是 sundews ,很象形的屬名。因為此多年生草本,葉面毛絨,這些毛毛的觸鬚分泌「汁液」形似朝露,作用吸引及消化昆蟲之用。 對,茅膏菜屬是吃肉的植物。此屬全球約發現190 多種植物。而據《香港植物名錄》,香港茅膏菜科的植物有五種。 照片所見,是一月底在柏架山記錄的。 見後一直搜查資料辨識,爭持於這是長柱茅膏菜抑或錦地羅/小毛氈苔,兩者都是香港原生而常見的,最後歸納是前者,主因植莖較長。 偶爾會遇到此植物,不限於柏架山,每次都在非常濕潤的石坡地面。不罕見,但每次總有種榮幸遇到的心情。可能因此植物的面貌,有如蓮座的造型,晶瑩的葉面飾樣。 drosera is one big genera of carnivorous plants, with over 190 species around the world known now. most of them are perennial herbaceous. it is commonly known as the sundews, vividly outline the outstanding feature of its leaves, the glistening drops of mucilage at the...

火炭母 chinese knotweed (polygonum chinense)

火炭母是香港很粗生的植物,我卻很珍重。 一來是本土原生植物,二來植物易認且漂亮,三,多年前因一位婆婆認識她。 那是一次在大嶼山的村落之行。走到一條尚有人煙的舊村,在行人徑碰見那婆婆,她站在自己屋前的矮牆,見到我們一班人,便閒聊起來,指著墻上的植物問我們認識嗎?跟著便在葉間摘下什麼放到嘴內,說到:「這是火炭毛(粵音第一音),(果)酸湄湄,全棵都是寶。」 的確,中藥將火炭母全株入藥,有清熱利濕消滯之用。花、果、嫩莖葉均可食用。 當下,細心打量這植物,發現這草本攀懸植物很標緻,小小白花花瓣有質感,而且光線底下呈剔透,那些小果更微妙,包裹在宿存的花被之內,黑中透紫,帶光澤。 爾後,走到比較靜的路邊山邊,都發現這美麗小植物的蹤影。雖然常見,每次皆不禁讚美她。這植物很容易辨認,葉面常有 v 型的白或深色的斑紋,而其莖呈嫩紅色。 this plant is very common in this city. it is a hong kong and chinese native. don’t overlook this perennial climber even though it is everywhere. it has many pretty features: Its stems are glabrous and red-brown. you can easily recognise chinese knotweed amid a luxurious pasture...
