Where do poinsettias come from

first_imgNo related posts. When we think poinsettia, we think Christmas plant. Fewer of us think about Central America or Mexico, but actually, that’s where poinsettias come from, despite the fact that they are now found around the world as a leading ornamental, particularly over the holidays.Poinsettias bloom during this time of the year, when the days are shortest, which is convenient, given their status in the world of gifts. They’re mainly grown as potted plants, however, in the tropics, gardeners can plant poinsettias outside, where they grow into shrubs. Most of us are familiar with poinsettia flowers, which if you look closely, are actually brightly red colored leaves that surround a group of small yellow flowers. Nurseries offer different varieties of poinsettia (known as pastora or buena noche in Spanish) as potted plants or gardeners can propagate new plants using stem cuttings about 10-15 centimeters long, taken from mature plants. These cuttings should be planted in sandy loam potting soil in containers, which are placed in a shady area and watered weekly to prevent them from drying out. When the cuttings begin to sprout new foliage, they can be moved into the sunlight.Later, when the plants are well established, they can be transplanted to larger pots, planter boxes or directly outside. These plants flower best in full sunlight and well-drained soil fortified with compost fertilizer. After a year of growth, trim the plants back after blooming to keep them compact.Small insects such as scales, mites and thrips may attack the foliage, but can be controlled with soapy solution sprays.For more information on tropical gardening, naturally, contact us at thenewdawncenter@yahoo.com or see our newsletter at http://thenewdawncenter.info/blog.html.

Updated: August 21 2017 1:50 pm Much more than love which upends everything you know about yourself you chose friends as a way of defining yourself Top News One day in the Hundred Acre Wood Piglet asked Pooh: “We’ll be friends forever won’t we Pooh” “Even longer” answered Pooh Once upon a time I was like AA Milne’s lovable characters sheltered by a friendship that I thought was invincible In the way of intense young people everywhere we were square pegs in round holes — and we bonded with all our defiant angularities She was unlike anyone I had met before: the smartest woman in class impossible to box into any labels funny wise and formidably tough someone who gave me — a socially awkward outsider in a Kolkata university — courage to be myself We were like no one else in the world and that’s why we needed no one else Two was exalted company three an intrusive mob The rest of the class called us not without a few sniggers “horihor aatma” the inseparable soulmates Much more than love which upends everything you know about yourself you chose friends as a way of defining yourself — against the family and its dull monochromatic middle-classness or the horde of peers urging you to become just like them Literature love and all the invaluable intangibles of life — you chat endlessly of these and the words begin to shape who you are and who you want to be Wasn’t it Plutarch who described a friend as the “theatre of his actions” She is also a witness to your life someone in whose eyes this jumble of courage oddities and failings add up to you But you step out of the Hundred Acre Wood You become perhaps someone else While many are lucky to have friendships that sustain them it is also true that life overtakes some of us and that you leave friends behind — even the best of them For a long time now I speak to my former soulmate once a year a rushed awkward filling in the blanks — of what we were once and what we are now What came between us The choices that we made — the cities we moved the partners we chose and the distance we or perhaps I travelled from my former self In my mid-30s now I have 287 friends on Facebook and a phonebook with a few hundred names Quite a few I have never met Social media and its easy conviviality is the antithesis of what I once believed friendship was — not a “request” conceded to with a click but a prize to be won for yourself and guarded against time While I was never good at making a gazillion friends I made up for that by making very good ones A few years ago when one of them married and moved to the UK I joked about having lost one-third of my friend circle in Delhi in one fell swoop I wasn’t kidding (I did have only three friends in the city) All but one of my friends are scattered like pollen in a spring breeze: to Kolkata and Shillong Singapore and Cambridge A few days ago when someone posted the melancholic Dekhi zamaane ki yaari/Bichhde sabhi bari bari on Facebook (where else) I joked that this could be the title of my unwritten essay on friendship Should I blame it on this time of my life when leisure has died a quick efficient death smothered by grocery lists the pressure of deadlines and keeping up with the Twitter timeline and the exhaustion of caring for parents and children Friendship needs time acres of empty days when you dawdle from conversation to silence and bleary-eyed sleepovers that end at sunrise In its secure amniotic embrace you learn to ignore the world — and find yourself My schoolfriend and I spent every evening standing in a corner of a Shillong street and giggling at whoever passed by besides consoling ourselves over being comprehensively defeated by the mysteries of trigonometry failure being the best sort of bonding We now connect by bitching about all the puke on our timelines on Mother’s Day and other similar trials of parenting — but what we love most I would hazard is to watch our daughters take baby steps at friendship When I think of friends I often find myself thinking of my grandmother’s saying: “Gaange gaange mile re boine boine mile na (Even the banks of rivers will meet somewhere but sisters are not that fortunate)” We would hear it every time my cousin and I would be involved in a squabble-unto-death over something insignificant It’s a poignant warning from an earlier time when marriage would be the inevitable disruption of the close bonds between sisters whose fate it was to be sent off to houses of strange people All of Jane Austen’s novels if you think of Charlotte Lucas and Elizabeth Bennet Emma and Harriet are about the most intimate of female friendships waiting to be shattered by marriage Our fate was not to be married off It is to never stay still Irish writer Tana French’s novels have some very sharp insights on contemporary friendship The Secret Place is a crime novel set in a boarding school but really about four girls their friendship so brilliant and brittle that it splinters at the first blow from reality In the search for self-transformation and self-discovery we change we become unrecognisable We return to the small towns we came from and the roads are narrower than we thought We meet an old friend and we can’t just take off where we left When we need our 4 am friend she is several time zones away And when she calls back you have moved on Move on then I don’t fret about making lasting

earlier hearing directed the police to get the items inspected by the forensic science laboratory at Rohini to verify the claims of the company Related News Windlass online stores through their counsel advocate Anshumaan Sahni have approached the Delhi High Court against the customs department claiming that their consignment of “replica” guns had been picked up by the customs officials and not been released for over eight months The issue for consideration before the bench is whether police clearance is required for import of “replica” guns the same way it is required for toy guns The company in its plea said that they import “replicas” for “decoration and gifting” Share This Article Related Article The “guns” have a trigger mechanism which makes a noise but does not have any firing chamber or mechanism by which it can actually be used as a firearm the company claimed According to the plea a consignment of 225 items including “paperweight” hand grenades antique pistols flintlock guns pre-1898 rifles and carbines were imported from Spain earlier this year with a bill of entry filed on January 12 However the customs officials refused to clear the consignment even though no orders had been given to seize the items The company said the Special Investigation and Intelligence Branch (SIIB) of the customs department had also cleared the import but the items were not released to the company The customs authorities said a clearance was needed from the licensing branch of the Delhi police as the items included “toy guns capable of being converted into weapons” The company in its arguments stated it is not possible to modify the “replicas” and they are not covered under the category of “toy guns” as they cannot shoot They argued that there was an “inordinate delay” in the process as the customs officials did not send the gun samples to the licencing authorities for several weeks after the consignment arrived The Delhi HC had in an earlier hearing directed the police to get the items inspected by the forensic science laboratory at Rohini to verify the claims of the company Since the results were delayed the bench directed the customs officials to bring a sample to the court The “samples” were brought before the bench on October 29 before the bench of Justice Badar Durrez Ahmed and Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva who allowed the court staff to “operate” the guns to check whether they could be used The customs officials present in the court argued the consignment had been detained as there was a trigger mechanism in the guns Advocate Sahni however argued that the trigger mechanism is “only for effect” as the guns do not have any firing mechanism The company also said the replicas were made of a zinc alloy which would get warped by heat that is if any attempt was made to install a firing mechanismThe court directed the FSL to submit its report within two weeks For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by

completion of th project before March 2017 Top News Both Central Railway (CR) and Western Railway (WR) have witnessed a major increase in footfall of commuters over the past one year but the pace of most of their pending projects has not seen much change The projects mostly under Mumbai Urban Transport Plan (MUTP) II and III are planned to increase frequency of train services and improve punctuality Among the major projects the fifth and sixth lines between Thane and Diva stations extension of western harbour line to Goregaon station from Andheri completing the sixth line between Mumbai Central and Borivali stations remain the priority However land acquisition issues delayed funding and the need of mega blocks are some of the reasons cited for the delay “While the additional line for Diva station will be completed by December end work on the Thane-Diva line can commence soon after It will take at least a year for completion of the project We will need to manage the connection work required on the line by taking the required permission for mega blocks from railway authorities” said an official of the Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC) the body looking after important suburban projects Watch What Else Is making News “All the above projects will help separate suburban services from express trains which can thus get independent lines for functioning This

railway users witnessed an increase in areas farther from the island city According to official statistics ticket sales in the past one year at stations including Diva Thane Vidyavihar Koparkhairane Juinagar and Airoli remain higher than at other stations on the CR For WR stations including Nalasopara Andheri Jogeshwari Goregaon Kandivali and Malad record the highest ticket sales “It has been two

acquisition to expedite these projects and complete them “After completion of fifth and sixth lines between Thane and Diva stations we will be looking at making those between Kurla and Parel stations

official A significant improvement in elevating the present infrastructure conditions tracks and signalling also must become priorities “The reason why railways observe speed limits with services is because limitations exist as far as condition of tracks is concerned Improper fencing maintenance failures and failure in acquiring state-of-the-art rolling stock aggravates the congestion on suburban

be the ideal first reaction to a close run-out call in cricket or in a KBC program But what does it say of a selection committee if it goes by the same fence-sitting indecisiveness while choosing replacements for two injured cricketers KL Rahul’s hamstring injury and Ishant Sharma’s fitness issues opened up two spots in the Indian squad of 15 for the second Test against New Zealand starting on Friday And the new selection committee probably on the backfoot after media criticism of its limited Test-playing experience went for the 50-50 option– aveteran and one fresh talent to fill the slots India’s captain Virat Kohli with Gautam Gambhir during a training session in Kolkata AFP While the inclusion of the 26-year-old Haryana off spinner-batsman Jayant Yadav is to be welcomed as an investment worth making for the future the recall of veteran Gautam Gambhir who’d turn 35 in a month’s time is a surprise Gambhir may not get to play the Eden Gardens Test if only because there are already two first-choice opening batsmen – Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan – in the squad In which case what purpose would he serve or be benefited by warming the benches On the other hand a young cricketer could have soaked in the atmosphere both in the stadium and observed the stars and it would have richly enhanced his experience He could have turned out to be a long-term investment The 13 Tests at home this winter presented an extraordinary opportunity to groom an Indian team for the future and for tougher tests abroad The presence of experienced batsmen in skipper Virat Kohli Murali Vijay Cheteshwar Pujara Ajinkya Rahane Rohit Sharma and Dhawan would have allowed the selectors to grab the chance to blood young batsmen who would have matured in a year or two But the retrogressive move to recall a veteran who could hardly be expected to be around for long in international cricket was a terrible waste of an opportunity The argument that in a long season the team might need the services of veterans in case of loss of form or injuries to key players cuts no ice Particularly when these veterans are decidedly on the downhill Gambhir was recalled to Test cricket in 2014after spending close to two years in the wilderness His last four scores against England were horrendous — 4 18 0 and 3 Besides he looked distinctly uncomfortable on English pitches Of course Gambhir has served Indian cricket pretty well in the past In his 12-year career he has played 56 Tests for an average of 4258 At his best he was described by Virender Sehwag as India’s premier opening batsman But all that was in the distant past Recently before his recall much was made of his Duleep Trophy form where he scored four 50s in his tally of 356 runs Nobody said anything of the quality of the opposition bowling where huge totals were almost the order of the tournament Even otherwise fellow opener Mayank Agarwal who is in his mid-20s had a more productive tournament accumulating 420 runs at an average of 84 in three matches while fellow left-hander opener Abhinav Mukund strung together a better average; 8266 to Gambhir’s 712 Thus it was not as if Gambhir set the Yamuna on fire in the Duleep Trophy Yet he finds himself in the 15-man squad while the other two mentioned above don’t Part of the issue was the selection of the India A team on the tour to Australia that concluded earlier this month Had that selection been imaginative a number of young batsmen in their teens and early to mid-20s could have been tried out Instead the BCCI sent out a few players who were in their 30s which incidentally was past the age where they could imbibe much Not unexpectedly some of these players flopped and a golden chance to be a feeder to the Indian team was lost (What poor Rahul Dravid did as coach and mentor with a team of near veterans is another matter altogether) Luckily Jayant Yadav was part of that team Down Under and did enough to warrant another look But the same cannot be said of many of the others Unfortunately Indian cricket or selectors never learn from their mistakes and are hence doomed to repeat them all over again Thus India is saddled with a Gambhir who is in the twilightof his career If he makes a lot of runs which is unlikely because he may not be in the playing eleven there would be nothing to gain long term from it If he fails well the selectors and he fail while a potential talent would be kept away a tad longer Written by Express News Service | Published: May 4 2013 2:18 am Related News Two labourers working on contract for Ideal Road Builders
