Rain Lily


Lili Hujan Putih
Tanaman tutup bumi ini terkenal dengan keunikan bunganya yang pelbagai warna(merah jambu, kuning, putih,etc) dan mempunyai bentuk bunga yang sedikit berbeza antara spesiesnya. Disebabkan cirinya yang tumbuh secara berkelompok dan padat, Rain Lily amat sesuai ditanam menghiasi 'rock garden' serta lapangan tanah yang luas. Zephyranthes candida dalam nama saintifiknya, dikatakan berasal dari Rio de plata, Paraguay dan Chile. Kini tumbuhan ini dikenali dengan beberapa nama seperti Rain Lily, Fairy Lily, Zephyr Lily, August Rain Lily dan Lili Hujan dalam bahasa melayu.

Pada kebiasaannya, Rain Lily mampu tumbuh sehingga ketinggian antara 152-254mm (6-10inci) serta boleh dibiakkan dengan cara belahan bebawang dan juga daripada biji benih. Rain Lily tumbuh dengan paling baik di bawah sinaran matahari penuh atau sedikit sahaja teduh dan dalam medium tanah lembap serta bersaliran baik. Dengan karakter warna daun hijau gelap(biasanya lebar daun 3mm), Rain Lily sememangnya sesuai ditanam di tanah lapang menggantikan rumput bagi menambahkan lagi  suasana tropika lebih-lebih lagi dengan keunikan bunganya yang memukau pandangan apabila kembang.

Plants in Peril

Plants are disappearing. Every year over 11.5 million hectares of tropical forest is cut and then burned to clear land for farming and cattle grazing. This kind of change is called deforestation. With fewer trees and other plants to convert carbon dioxide to oxygen, too much carbon dioxide builds up. Deforestation is one cause of global warming. The conservation of plants and forests is now something more people and governments are beginning to discuss very seriously as one way to protect the environment.

Life-forms We Can’t Live Without

Plants are one of two major Kingdoms of life forms. There are about 300,000 plant species on Earth. Plants are the only life forms that can produce their own food using energy from sunlight. Plants produce almost all of the oxygen in the air that humans and other animals breathe. Plants are also an important source of food, building materials, and other resources that make life possible for Earth’s animals.
