The deadly Hemlock Water-Dropwort (Oenanthe crocata) in first plan. On the background the edible Fool’s Watercress (Apium nodiflorum) populates the waters. Two closely related plants of the complicated Carrot Family (Apiaceae) that share the same habitat growing side by side. #HemlockWaterDropwport #Oenanthecrocata #Oenanthe #WaterDropworts #Apiaceae #Umbellifers #CarrotFamily #PoisonousPlants #PoisonGarden #DeadlyPlants #foraging #ForagingUK #wildfood #wildfoodUK #forager #plantasvenenosas #toxicplants #plantastoxicas

WHAT A GIANT, BADASS PLANT! I've called this a "dinosaur plant" for years bc they are so big they look like they came straight out of Jurassic Park. I finally learned what it is! . . BEHOLD: The mighty skunk cabbage! . . COOL PLANT FACTS: . - this plant generates it's OWN FREAKING HEAT through a chemical process called thermogenesis! . -it's a huge part of black bears' diet . -medicinally it's been used to treat tuberculosis and epilepsy among other things! . -the plant contains high levels of calcium oxalate so it's deadly if consumed raw . . Bonus points to you if you can spot my favorite plant Jewelweed in one of these photos 😊 #holyhellmothernature #coolestshitever #badassplant #iminawe #scienceiseverywhere #knowledgefortheday #deadlyplants #medicinalplants #skunkcabbage #neature #thermogenesis #exploreyourworld

Last year I tried to identify this literally all year and I've come so far. It's Solanum diphyllum (two leaf nightshade). I've been waiting for the blooms all Winter and soon there will be green then yellow berries (that are inedible and toxic FYI!). I'm just glad to know what it is because unlike other random plants this one is in in my backyard and I found out months ago but this is the first bloom I've seen. ☣️💮

Wow - we are currently harvesting Hemlock Water Dropwort roots from a new site that is scheduled for housing development. Some of the plants on the site are yielding the most amazing roots - beautifully coloured with pink. Truly beautiful but deadly. A seriously powerful ingredient for protection when used in civilised magick and obvious properties for un-civilised magick such as hexing. Fantastically versatile and if all goes to plan we will be offering this dried soon too. #zuggans #zuggansdotcom #zuggansstore #hemlock #hemlockwaterdropwort #magick #materiamagica #roots #rootwork #poisonous #wicca #voodoo #rootmagic #witchcraft #hexing #spellcasting #poisonousplants #deadlyplants #witchy

CAUTION FOR EVERYONE WHO HAS PETS. Sorry I’ve been quiet my world was turned upside down Thursday. My wonderful bearded dragon Princess ate some foxtail grass weeds and has been very sick since Thursday. Swipe for a picture of foxtail grass because it’s extremely dangerous to all animals. Princess spent 2 nights in the hospital and had surgery, we still don’t know if she’s going to pull through. I too have been sick and I’ve been sleeping with her out on the couch. So far she’s been alert I’ve been feeding her with a needless syringe and giving her baths and taking her out in the sun but she’s still unable to use her legs. There’s no impaction and I’ve done everything the vets said to do and more. Just please be careful with your beloved pets so your not in the same heartbreaking situation I have now found myself in. #animalcare #petcare #reptilecare #warning #caution #dangerousplants #deadlyplants #toxicplants #sickbeardeddragon #prayersneeded #loveher #lovemybeardeddragon #vetcare

Someone told us the other day that snails don’t sit on poisonous plants, only edible ones. A wrong and dangerous rule of thumb. This snail is on hemlock water dropwort, one of the nastiest wild poisons...
