Bombax ceiba (Red Cotton Tree)- this tall tree is native to temperate & tropical Asia. It is widely planted in parks and roadsides because of its beautiful red flowers from January- April form a scarlet carpet on the ground for few weeks after dropping. It produces bright red cup shaped 5 petalled flowers. Hence its Sanskrit name "Rakta Pushpa". Its dried fruit capsule contains white fluffy cotton like fibres. Hence it is commonly called "Red Cotton tree". The Generic name "Bombax" is from Greek word 'bombyx' meaning silk referring to the silken fibres of this tree. The specific epithet "ceiba" is the latinized form of its South American name. These fibres are used in pillows, cadered into thread & woven into textiles in India. Bombax flowers are edible- as tea (in Myanmar) or as a vegetable curry. Bombax wood is soft & is most suitable to make plywood. As these trees are very tall, they are favorite roosting sites to Vultures & Eagles. These days, decrease in Bombax plant species is also one of the reasons for marginalizing vulture population.

Plant tissue culture is a technique used to cultivate and multiply plants in a lab setting. A little piece of plant tissue, like a leaf or stem, is taken and placed in a sterile nutrient medium so that it can grow and create new plants. There are many uses for plant tissue culture, from creating new plant types to researching the growth and genetics of plants.
Plant tissue culturing requires a number of steps. In order to eliminate any microbes, a small portion of plant tissue is first removed from the parent plant and sterilized.

Breadfruit (Artocarpus altilis) is a species of flowering tree in the mulberry and jackfruit family (Moraceae)believed to be a domesticated descendant of Artocarpus camansi originating in New Guinea, the Maluku Islands, and the Philippines. It was initially spread to Oceania via the Austronesian expansion. It was further spread to other tropical regions of the world during the Colonial Era. British and French navigators introduced a few Polynesian seedless varieties to Caribbean islands during the late 18th century. Today it is grown in some 90 countries throughout South and Southeast Asia, the Pacific Ocean, the Caribbean, Central America and Africa. Its name is derived from the texture of the moderately ripe fruit when cooked, similar to freshly baked bread and having a potato-like flavor.

Poppy seed under microscope - Poppy seeds are small, blue-gray seeds that are produced by the o***m poppy (Papaver somniferum). They are often used as a spice in cooking, and are a common ingredient in baked goods, such as breads, pastries, and bagels. They have a nutty, slightly sweet flavor and a crunchy texture.

Poppy seeds do not contain significant amounts of o***m, the narcotic substance that is extracted from the o***m poppy. However, they can contain trace amounts of morphine and other o***m alkaloids, which may result in a positive drug test if consumed in large quantities. It is generally safe to consume poppy seeds in small to moderate amounts as a food ingredient, but it is important to be aware of their potential to cause a false positive on a drug test.

Poppy seeds are high in nutrients, including protein, fiber, and several essential minerals. They are also a good source of antioxidants, which may have potential health benefits. However, as with any food, it is important to consume them in moderation as part of a balanced diet.

The common sunflower (Helianthus annuus) is a large annual forb of the genus Helianthus. It is commonly grown as a crop for its edible oily seeds. Apart from cooking oil production, it is also used as livestock forage (as a meal or a silage plant), as bird food, in some industrial applications, and as an ornamental in domestic gardens. Wild H. annuus is a widely branched annual plant with many flower heads. The domestic sunflower, however, often possesses only a single large inflorescence (flower head) atop an unbranched stem.


Tulips (Tulipa) are a genus of spring-blooming perennial herbaceous bulbiferous geophytes (having bulbs as storage organs). The flowers are usually large, showy and brightly coloured, generally red, pink, yellow, or white (usually in warm colours). They often have a different coloured blotch at the base of the tepals (petals and sepals, collectively), internally. Because of a degree of variability within the populations, and a long history of cultivation, classification has been complex and controversial. The tulip is a member of the lily family, Liliaceae, along with 14 other genera, where it is most closely related to Amana, Erythronium and Gagea in the tribe Lilieae.
