Microscopic Images Reveal the Most Potent Cannabis Flowers in Incredible Detail - Newsweek
Teagen Quilichini, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia (UBC), said in a statement.
Finola flower containing "frost-like" trichomes.
The valuable products of the cannabis plants are its metabolites (i.e. the cannabinoids and terpenes), which are amply produced in the glandular trichomes of the female flower—aka the "marijuana bud." These glandular trichomes come in three variations defined by their appearance—bulbous, sessile and stalked. However, until now, little was understood about how these different shapes affected the plant's chemical outputs.To find out, the researchers developed a technique involving two-photon microscopy and intrinsic autofluorescence patterns. This allowed them to study the internal structures of different trichomes in a hemp variant called Finola.The results have now been published in The Plant Journal.
Multiphoton microscopy image of stalked glandular trichome.
The result was that under ultraviolet light, the stalked trichomes possessed blue autofluorescence, reflecting the plant's higher cannabinoid levels. Conversely, the sessile trichomes possessed a red autofluorescence, signaling lower levels of the metabolite.The technique also revealed the stalked trichomes contained clusters of 12 to 16 secretory disc cells. Those in the sessile trichomes were smal... Jul 5, 2019
Tropical Gardening: Summer brings flowers for fragrance and color - Hawaii Tribune-Herald (subscription)
Hedychium greenei, is sometimes called the guava jelly ginger. It is so cold hardy that it will winter over as far north as Seattle and Victoria, British Columbia, if given a little protection. On the Hilo side, you will also see fields of edible ginger grown commercially.
Try several types if you have the room in your garden.
One caution to note is to remember the Kahili ginger is one that seeds and spreads in the wet, higher elevations. Folks in the Volcano area are concerned it is proliferating in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Since park personnel are trying to keep non-native plants out, it would be helpful if the spent flower heads were removed from your garden before they set seed. The seed also can be harvested for culinary and medicinal uses. Of course, park officials would probably prefer it if residents adjacent to the park avoided planting Kahili ginger altogether.
For answers to your questions about fragrant plants, call the UH Master Gardener Helpline at 322-4893 in Kona and 981-5199 in Hilo.

'Field Notes:' All About The Bitterroot, Montana's State Flower
The bitterroot grows on the dry slopes of the Rockies, ranging from southern British Columbia and Alberta to the high-altitude deserts of New Mexico and Arizona. Dormant for nearly ten months of the year, the bitterroot flowers in May or June and blooms only briefly. The plant uses stored energy from nighttime moisture to open its flowers in the morning. The flowers close during the sunny afternoons and evenings to preserve their energy. Each brilliant blossom contains 60 to 70 tiny seeds, which are spread when the bloom dries and detaches from the plant and the wind blows the flowers across the plains. An enduring part of the culture and landscape of this region, the bitterroot was voted the Montana state flower in 1894. Anyone could vote, no matter age or gender. When the polls closed, 5,857 ballots were in. More than 32 separate flowers received votes. But the bitterroot was the clear winner with 3,621 votes, and has been our state flower ever since. Lewis And Clark are often credited with the discovery of the plant. In fact, its scientific name is Lewisia rediviva. But long before Lewis and Clark came along, the bitterroot was a staple in trade and cooking for several indigenous tribes, namely the Salish people who lived in the bitterroot's habitat. A sack full of the dried herb commanded a substantial price in trade. Docum... Sep 22, 2017
Flowers named after famous adventurer grow in Shasta County
British Columbia in Canada south to northern Baja California in Mexico. It has been collected at nine locations in the northeastern and southwestern portions of Shasta County and can be found in roadsides and fields in valleys and foothills throughout the county.The diamond clarkia (Clarkia rhomboidea) is the most common clarkia in Shasta County in the black oak and coniferous forest zone. (Photo: Steve Laymon)Diamond clarkia (Clarkia rhomboidea), a rotate-flowered (i.e., flat, circular, and disc-shaped; also called saucer-shaped) clarkia, is also a widespread species and is found in the mountains in the middle-elevation range from southern British Columbia south to northern Baja California. It is found in numerous locations in Shasta County.The slender clarkia (Clarkia gracilis ssp. gracilis) is fairly common in the shrublands of Shasta County. (Photo: Steve Laymon)Slender clarkia (Clarkia gracilis ssp. gracilis), a bowl-shaped flower, is less widespread and is found from central Washington south to the south Bay Area in Santa Clara County. This taxon has been found at a number of locations throughout Shasta County, generally in the foothills and lower mountain valleys.meta i... (Redding Record Searchlight)
