Faias Palmeiras

Faias Palmeiras

After the Arriate of the Avocado and divided of this by the road that gives to the back we have what we call Palmetum, perhaps a little pretentious, but it is where more palmeras there are concentrated. The palm trees in the long one will rise upwards, so under them, now a little variegated, we have planted some shrubs, some of them pruned.

View from the path below. In the background you can see the poplars and the grevillea, but they are behind this area. This zone has several areas.

At the edge of the road, there is a zone with Festuca glauca and carex vareigata upholstering, behind there are some pittosporum tobira that are being cut in the form of a plate and among them ponsetias, behind them there are feathery palms.

Following the path, pelargonium zonale and violeteras upholstering.

Then and marking the vertex of this area a ficus nitida, under him, a loropetalum fire dance.

Bordering the fence of the limit of the plot, hydrangeas (have been changed of place) next to Butia. p> Feathered palm trees (Syagrus romanzoffianum)
On the fence to cover there is a Russian vine and a podonea. We want to put some cypress to make a barrier to the wind, because it destroys the leaves of the palms.
In that area there is also a Paulonia and a chestnut of Indian.
It is a zone a little bundled with several errors, some others can be corrected do not. We put cotoneaster horizontalis, thinking that they were pyracantas, already they were transplanted. The chestnut of Indian is a little boxed, but needs shade and is the only place where it had, when the palm trees rise it will be more relaxed.
This part is the one that gives to the limit of the zone by the way of yellow slabs, is a jasmine nudiflarum and next to a solanum jazminoides.

Under the Butia capitata, here the palm grove is less years old. You can also see a washingona. And in the background a banana tree (paradise muse) that is on the border with poplars.

Ficus nitida. Here it is small, it has already been trimmed.

Easter flower (Euphorbia pulcherrima or Poinsttia pulcherrima). This year is very damaged by the ice, and that is under some pittosporum that protect it.

Syagrus romanzoffianum, we have three copies.

Washingotna filifera, is much larger this year the wind has left the shattered leaves.

Loropetalum Fire Dance

Podronea Ricasolana, a true monster, has tried to destroy the fence, we have pruned it this year to the beast.

Russian vine (Polygonum aubertii)

Marine organisms as source of extracts to disrupt bacterial communication: bioguided isolation and identification of quorum sensing inhibitors from Ircinia felix - ScienceDirect
The crude extract from the sponge I. felix was fractionated, obtaining furanosesterterpenes which were identified and evaluated as quorum sensing inhibitors, showing moderate activity without affecting the biosensor's growth.
