Their Land Defiled, Forest People Swap Flower Worship for Quran and Concrete
Tija Sanggul, with their grandchildren, outside their concrete house in Jambi Province, Indonesia.CreditCreditKemal Jufri for The New York TimesBy Hannah BeechOct. 14, 2018JAMBI, Indonesia — When the flowers could no longer summon the gods, the healer knew it was time to leave the forest.As a traditional healer of the Orang Rimba, or forest people, here on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, Temenggung Tarip had long depended on jungle blooms to conjure the divine for his seminomadic indigenous community. An offering of colorful petals would bring the elephant god, skilled at curing toothaches, or the tiger god, helpful for those who had lost their way.But timber, rubber, paper and palm oil plantations have encroached on the forests of Indonesia. Since 2000, about 15 percent of the nation’s tree cover has disappeared. In Jambi, the central Sumatran province that is home to a few thousand Orang Rimba, the amount of deforestation is even higher, at 32 percent since the turn of the century, according to Global Forest Watch.figure class="css-12t3uda e1a8i6eb0" aria-label="media" role="group" itemProp="associatedMedia" itemscope itemID="https://static01.nyt.com/images/2018/09/27/world/00indonesia-dispatch-2/merlin_144395838_90bacefc-e6ae-4679-af8d-b8ff9afd0a...

St. Paul paper artist crafts incredibly realistic flowers that last
St. Paul artist Anna Gaseitsiwe of A Paper Florist creates delicate handmade flowers, foliage and even vegetables using crêpe paper. Not the garishly colored spools you find at big-box party stores, but high-end German-made crêpe paper. “It stretches and bends and allows you to manipulate it,” she said of her chosen medium. Spices, bleach and pollen are used to create subtle hues that mimic nature.
“I try to get as close to real life as possible,” she says.
Gaseitsiwe, who formerly investigated money laundering, developed and honed her floral-crafting technique after taking time off from that career to spend more time with her children and moving to Minnesota. Now she creates custom arrangements for permanent home decor and special events — even wedding bouquets... Oct 26, 2018
Plant Lovers' Almanac: Enjoy the leaves, flowers and fruits of fall
So, enjoy the spectacular fruits of magnolias, the gumdrop fruits of cannas, the pincushion fruits of dock, and the outsize pods of Kentucky coffeetree, all now on display.The kingdom fungiEver interested in the dark side, we have had a magnificent display of fungi this autumn, from poisonous destroying angel mushrooms to delicious edibles. We do not have enough room in 100 Almanacs to distinguish which are which, so remember the old maxim: There are old mushroom hunters. There are bold mushroom hunters. There are no old, bold mushroom hunters.Not only are there many clear-cut bad actors, but many mushrooms that are choice edibles for some are not a happy experience for others. So if you hope to eat any wild mushrooms, do your homework with guides such as the Audubon Field Guide and the many books and websites, seasoned by consulting with knowledgeable friends, experts, and your own physiology.Having said all that, I have seen a number of interesting fungi this fall, such as toothy coral mushrooms 20 feet up a tree rather than on the ground, to a convoluted puffball mushroom in my backyard, quickly itself rotting in a matter of a few days, and a carpet of another species of puffballs conveniently taking over the world at a fungal workshop I did at Morton Arboretum in Chicago with Davey Tree’s Chrissy Balk.Fungus finale: In New York City recently, I was impressed by the interplay of genetics relative to powdery mildew diseases. First, each powdery mildew fungus is specialized in its host range: the powdery mildew fungus on zinnia will not get on lilac, for example. Secondly, I was impressed while looking at a few examples in NYC of how intimate this susceptibility is: horse-chestnuts side by side, white with fungal growth on one right next to horse-chestnuts with no or very little powdery mildew, lilacs that looked whitewashed compared to lilacs next to them an unblemished green. Genetics, though not everything is a big player in disease.And now for something very different: I turn your attention to OSU’s Buckeye Yard and Garden Line (http://bygl.osu.edu). Tune in to the wondrous story told by Joe Boggs of OSU, talking about what he thought was an eriophyid mite infestation on wild sweet potato. This was right up Joe’s alley since he is an entomologist, and though mites have eight or four legs instead of six, they are still part of his interest zone.Then he thought it might be a fungus, then learned it was white rust, caused by Albugo, once thought to be a fungus, but now classified as an oomycete organism. It is a great tale, really, about diagnosing plant problems — and most importantly about being curious, even about something you thought you knew. Life, and Joe as Alice might say, are curiouser and curiouser.And as Mark Twain noted: “What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know. It's what we know for sure that just ain't so.” Jim Chatfield is a horticultural educator with Ohio State University Extension.
