Mennyi az esélye egy átlag magnak, hogy fa legyen belőle?

What is the probability of an average seed to become a tree?

Well, let’s see:

A few words about sprouts::

For a seed to become a sprout, it needs a lot of nutrients.
Necessary reserves of nutrients are contained in the cotyledons or the seed.

At the beginning of sprouting, the seed needs water.
The water is absolutely necessary for the seed.
Not a drop of water, but a constant supply of water.

Water demand varies from plant to plant.
Even a few plants take up minimal water, for example, an avocado needs a constant amount of water to sprouting at all and then survive.

As the germ begins to grow, its oxygen uptake increases.
Later, the uptake of carbon dioxide.
Different enzymes are activated and degradation begins,
which reduces the number of reserve nutrients in the seed.
It will soon take root and after than the first bud will appear.
This also happens at different speeds per plant.

The first breath

With the appearance of foliage, photosynthesis of the plant begins, ie the production of organic matter. This is important because by this time the seed’s reserve nutrients are running low.

For example, if the plant is damaged in this state, it will be harder to grow or not at all to recover, but it depends on the plant we are talking about.

Many plants still sprout easily, unfortunately, this is not true for all seeds.
Pines are much harder to sprouting, but radishes or broccoli are simple.

Even at home, a seed can sprout quickly, while in nature it is not that easy.
In my own “garden” I also protect, nourish the freshly sprouted plant.
I pay attention to where to plant it in the beginning.
But in nature, seeds can fall anywhere…

A lot of seeds may not be in a place where they can sprout or grow or live.

There’s also a (more) super-video on YouTube about this.
This is the first few days of an oak:


You can read more about this in the Eden Garden article (Hungarian):

https://www.edenkert.hu/kertepites-kerttervezes/kertapolas/magvetes-lepesei-otthon/1967/

All in all about the problems of a seed:

?There is not enough water to either germinate or dry out the sprout.
?Too cold,
?Too hot. The plant withers immediately after germination.
?The seed is too deep in the ground (Ez nem minden fajta növénynél probléma, de van amelyik így soha sem fog kicsírázni)
?The seed is not in the ground (Ez szintén adott fajta növényeknek előny, valamelyiknek pedig óriási hátrány).

Bónusz, ha valami, vagy valaki megeszi a magot…

És mi lesz a csírával?

A csírázáshoz víz és hő kell.
Ebből minden növénynek annyi, amennyi neki szükséges ehhez.
De ha már kicsírázott a növény, akkor szülsége van fényre, a fotoszintézishez, tehát a magas aljnövényzet, vagy a nála magasab és sűrűbb növényzet hátráljtatni tudja a növekedésben.
És persze szüksége van megfelelő talajra a táplálék felvételhez.

Aztán persze jöhetnek az állatok és az emberek, akik megeszik, letapossák, levágják, vagy letépkedik.

Persze láttunk már hardcore növényeket, amik a bazilika tetején is gyökeret vernek, vagya ház falán, de nem minden növény ilyen superplant.

Szóval nem egyszerű magnak lenni, sem csírának, annak a fának, amelyik felnő pedig sok tisztelet jár.

Egy fa évente átlegosan hány magot hoz, ebből hány fa lesz.

Erre csak becslések vannak, mert nagyon függ a fatájától.

De ha megnézzük az alábbi képeket, el tudjuk képzelni,hogy mennyi mag kerül le egy fáról.

Szóval kijelenthetjük, hogy nem egyszerű a növényeknek.

Érdekesség: a mókusok nagyban hozzájárulnak, hogy a tölgyek ki tudnak csírázni, és csemete lesz belőlük.

All About My Hair – I haven’t washed my hair with shampoo in half a year!

I haven’t washed my hair with chemicals in half a year.

Embarrassing topic!??

Fragmentation, bran .. unquestionably since I live in the city.

Somewhere I drew a parallel in my head, but many just say “I don’t think so” when I shared that suspicion.
I still have the suspicion that there may be a lot to do with this, especially being an urban person.

(If you’re only interested in the end result, scroll down to “It’s finally over!”)?

Failure and Failure:

At first, of course, I tried a simple shampoo change, but nothing.
I changed from a stronger shampoo to a gentler shampoo.
Failure
With a natural wrap for dry scalp, because my hair is not so greasy.
Failure
I looked for some other tips. I dried it another way. But nothing. These were just a failure.?

Then came the baby shampoo (not the brand, but any shampoo for babies), if it’s good for babies, it will be good for me too, I thought. For a moment, it seemed to have improved, but it hadn’t been a success yet.

Then I experimented. What if I wash once a week, and what if I wash every two days?
I tried to see if anything changed.

Almost!
Then came homeopathy and herbs.
And Eggs and beer … yes, eggs and beer.?
At first, I thought my hair was going to stink or something, but it worked particularly well. It solved the problem perfectly.?

Then I realized something else last summer.

When we went on vacation for the sea, I was a little worried.
I don’t like to travel with big packages and the one and a half week trip were several stops.
So I gave up the big tube of shampoo and took only a little with me. I didn’t really use it during the whole vacation because we were constantly in the sea.
And see a miracle.?‍♀️
I didn’t get dandruff from the saltwater.

Natural seawater washed, wind and heat dried my hair.
And my hair was clean, beautiful, deal that the dandruff was gone!

After all, the diagnosis was made.
My scalp is hypersensitive to anything that is not completely 100% natural.


 

ECOSIA – Environment friendly search engine

Plant real trees with just a few clicks!

Not long ago I found Ecosia, which is a search engine.
They have an incredibly valuable mission.
That is, at least 80 percent of the profit is spent on planting trees, where the biggest problem is: in Africa, in Burkina Faso.

We can’t go every day to pick up garbage or volunteer or live without Zero waste.
We can try, but honestly  it is not easy if the workplace or other reasons make it difficult.
But it is great to have tools in everyday life, and
I can help a little to the Earth on my average days.

That’s why ECOSIA has been created.

We can do something for the greener future of the Earth with using internet.
We help them with every search to make our planet greener.
What I am really happy about is that they have more than 7 million users and more and they planted 57 million trees. (Based on 2019 data)

Ecosia is easy to use, just like Google.
Using it in office work, I can also contribute a little to the brighter future.
Those who sit in front of their machines (for work or anything)
it is an opportunity to take part in environmental protection without changing their usual habits.

How does it work?
Just like Google, or other search engines, is generating revenue from edits and advertisements.
Our search on the internet, through advertisements and ranking of search results, is definitely making money for the search engine.
Then I looked closely, and with Ecosia we can be sure that 80 percent of the money earned from searches will turn out to be good.
As “Earth Warriors”, we take a little money from Microsoft and Google to give back to Earth through Ecosia, who now needs our support immensely.
Ecosia has full financial publicity, and tree planting donations can be downloaded for anyone from Ecosia Dropbox account.
Ecosia can be added quickly and easily to the search engine right from the start page.
I’ve already done this with a few clicks.
Since its launch in 2009, a total of 57,764,698 (May 15, 2019) trees were planted from the donations of Ecosia, which warmed my heart.
Until I think again, Earth’s trees are rapidly disappearing as a result of human intervention.
48 large soccer-field-sizes forest are cut per every minute,
this means more than 150,000 square kilometers per year
and I can’t tell you how many trees.
This means a little smaller area each year than Hungary (my home country).

I can only encourage you!
Use Ecosia!
Do it for the environment, try to be sustainable, even if you never reach the full Zero waste.
Try Recycling Everyday, so that we don’t have to lie to our grandchildren, “We tried everything.”

 

Menstrual cup – What is this …..?

A couple of years ago I met the menstrual cup.
Then I thought, “What? They’re crazy! What’s that stupid things?”
Then as I met the “Zero Waste” more and more, I also met the Reusable pads and others.
I was wondering what it was, if it was something of an epoch-making solution? ?
As I began to pay more attention to myself and my health and the environment, I found a YouTube channel.

This is not advertising, it’s just a recommendation!
This is Hormonmentes (hormone-free) from Janka.

This is a Hungarian YouTube channel, but if you know English channel in the same topic, please let me know in the comment section.❤
Janka Talking about “taboos” that shouldn’t be taboo, so I just loved it!

Update!!!???
You send me an English YouTube channel about this topic, so the video is here:

I don’t want to describe the way it works, nor to say that it’s good and everyone needs it.
Watch the video if you are interested.
I would just like to tell you what experiences I have about this.
So after a lot of thinking and watching, I decided to try it out.

I counted one: In a month with a package insert.
Approximately: One month = a pack of menstrual pads.
One pack is about 2-3 EUR
This is 24-36 EUR in a year (or more)
So one menstrual cup = 1 year menstrual pads
But you can use it for years.
I counted, thought and bought it…

I’ve been looking at it for a while, because It was still a little bizarre for me.
Now I would like to tell you about the first two days of experience.
I’m a little shy, but I think that women have to talk about it (with other women).?

The disinfection step went easily.
Because disinfection is most important.
Before every use!

The first day was very skeptical and cautious
so I used a menstrual pad too.
But the surprising experience was that it worked perfectly for 12 hours.
The placement was not easy at first.
First I was thinking, How this thing works? What and how should I?
But then I managed to do it.

Ladies who regularly use tampons: this is a big advantage!

The second day has gone easier insertion,
better to say, less …. uncomfortable.

And the “take-off” was surprisingly easy.
I’m not going to explain why, but first try to take off in the shower!
I’m over the second day.
No leaks, airtight, not uncomfortable.?

I finished the day off with a great feeling.
No taboo from today!
No longer have to miss the wellness, no missed swimming pool!
I can go on any tour on the “period” days too!?

But the most important thing!
All women have experienced in their life (or will be),
that it is not a matter the routine.
The rush of life, the “just one more question” on the way to the WC, or for whatever reason, the blood was everywhere…
(And if you have no luck, of course in a white dress, etc.)
I think this is a familiar problem that I don’t have to explain.

Not only am I happy, but I also feel an uplifting plus freedom!
Funny, but after this two days I just don’t understand why I haven’t found it so far, or why I haven’t used it before.

Winter farewell

Spring is coming soon.

Every year I look forward to seeing the weather getting warmer. ?
When I feel the power of the sun as it shines and I feel I’m refreshing.

So at the end of winter, at the beginning of spring, I always remember what I like in winter and what I don’t.
Every spring I have a little winter farewell.
I say goodbye to the snowflakes, peace of the holidays, the winter landscape, my winter clothes and, of course, the cold.

I love their tiny flakes and their pattern. ❄
I love that I can see every breath I take.

Winter is beautiful, just cold. My body does not like the cold very much, so I prefer a layered dress, which gives me a lot of opportunity about wearing various wichty clothes.
When I have the time and opportunity I like to make my clothes what I dreamed.

In this little video you can see one of the clothes I made in this winter. ?
I will also make a separate blogpost for the clothes for you..

I’ll start packing the winter clothes to give space to the spring clothes.
These witchy and north dresses are most missing when the winter is over. Unfortunately, as time is getting better, they are less well-suited. ?
So I say good bye to my winter clothes too. ?

Of course there are some that I don’t miss in the spring.
People are more standoffish in winter, and in spring everyone is getting a little smoother and opening up.

What is still happening also in the spring, these are the diseases. ?
I will be sick in winter many times, but especially in spring. I do not really like the excessive medicine consumption, So I usually consume herbs besides necessary medicines,
I try to heal myself from diseases in this way.
You can read in a separate blogpost which herbs were good for me for many years.

In any case, I look forward to the spring, the flowers coming out of the ground and the scents of spring.
This time people are noticeably smile more and start to feel better after the long winter.

What are your favorite seasons?

Plants and I

The great benefit of living in the city was that I learned to deal with plants.

There are those who take it for granted, but to understand how great this is for me, I tell you a little bit about myself.

It is incredibly important to me to surround a lot of green.
And I’m not talking about color, but plants.
I grew up in a place where I could see the forest from the window.
Every season was beautiful and soothing here.

Hinyázik, hogy 5 perc sétára az ember már kint van az erdőben, a csendben és nyugalomban?.

Mivel sok időmet töltöttem kint, így az innen-onnan kapott növényeim sajnos megsínylették.
Sokszor elfelejtettem locsolni, vagy épp hogy túllocsoltam őket. Az újabb jöjevényeket inkább elajándékoztam, hogy ne jussanak ugyan arra a sorsra.
Azt hiszem, hogy akkoriban talán azért nem zavart ez, mert édesanyámnak is rengeteg növénye volt az igazi és utánozhatatlan természet pedig 5 percre.

Ahányszor sikerült elhervasztanom egy újabb kapott növényt mindig Tistou – A zöld hüvelykujjak című meséje jutott eszembe és valahol egy kicsit szégyelltem magam, hogy nem tartottam őket életben.

Az egész növény mizéria egy maggal kezdődött.
Az egyik barátnőm ajánlotta, hogy próbáljam ki az avokádót.
Finom volt ? és jó nagy magja, amit bedugtam egy egyik virágládába.

Aztán teltek múltak a hónapok és én el is felejtettem az egészet.
Az egyik nap pedig arra figyeltem fel, hogy valami kinőtt. Egy 5-6 cm-es valami.
Két nap múlva már 10 centi volt, rá pár napra pedig már túlnőtt a 15 cm-en.
Azthiszem kíváncsi lettem, hogy mi is lesz ebből ?.

Egészen kiskorom óta ez volt az első növény, amit magról neveltem.
Gyerekkoromban anyukám és az iskola is megismertetett ezzel, mint mindenki mást, de valahogy most mégis újdonságnak tűnt.
Csak nőtt és nőtt. Ő túl akart élni én pedig segítettem neki.
Ma már egy méteres fa lett belőle és növekedik szépen.

Mostanra egy egész növényarzenál növekszik nálam. Kedvet kaptam a nevelésükhöz, és otthon is jobban érzem magam a sok zöld között.

Szerintem mások is vannak így a növényekkel, hogy “fura” kapcsolatuk van és egyszerűen nem megy a nevelés.
De csak ajánlani tudom. Hihetetlen jó érzés látni, ahogy napról napra nőnek és egy csomó új dolgot tanultam velük kapcsolatban.
