Small Landscapes, small oxygen generators!


These are small garden landscapes isolated by the camera's frames. Even if they are small plants, they are truly producing oxygen for us, as much as they could. These are all in our property and taken during the rainy season. The ferns are just like on the area adjacent to our kitchen. These are our surroundings at the height of the rainy season, but now the rains just started to come int the afternoons. I hope you will like them. 


It is reported that tropical atmospheric carbon dioxide sequestration is 50 pounds per tree per year. It can be roughly calculated by measuring the tree's diameter, the weight of the tree above ground, the height of the tree. 


Using some computation method and some given constants, it is reported that "a newly-planted Acacia angustissima, 2.5 years old, 15 feet tall with a trunk 3 inches in diameter gave 21.5 lbs. of CO2 sequestered per year". (Reference)

  4. Beautiful ferns. They grow well in Oregon (where we spend summers) and here in Florida too (which really surprised me the first time we came here). Your pictures are lovely. And the information a good reminder.

    1. hahaha, take your time Kreesh! Thank you so much for your kind words about my posts, and the concern that i might be looking for you. Those ferns and small weeds are the vertical wall just adjacent to the kitchen wall, because our area is not flat. These only happens while we are at the height of our rainy season, this time it is just starting to grow.

  10. Great set of pictures - ferns are such splendid plants.

    Every time I tidy up in the garden I am struck by the fact that most of what I put into the compost bin used to be carbon dioxide - it is something everybody should be aware of.

    1. hahaha, yes Stewart, that is very correct. Imagine that those we put in the compost bin are formerly the air we exhale! That is truly materialization through time, magic! Now you inspire me to write later in that way! I wish i am a good writer, unfortunately not!

  14. I love ferns. Having quite a bit of wet weather here at the moment means that my few ferns are flourishing but yours just look amazing. Thanks for the figures - always good to be reminded of the world around us and how we manage to destroy it so easily.
