Natural Treasures with an indisputable beauty
Tesoros Naturales con belleza indiscutible


In my grandmother's house, there is a variety of medicinal, fruit, and decorative plants; my grandmother knows all the names and their properties, I have not been able to learn from her wisdom, I only recognize the most common ones like the aloe vera plant, the fruit ones like mango, Mamon, lemon, but the medicinal ones, no matter how many times they repeat their names and qualities, I am not able to learn them.

These days a beautiful flower that came out of one of the plants that I have seen all my life caught my attention, I took many pictures because it seemed so beautiful and I remembered this valuable hive community so I decided to investigate the Indian cane plant and its flower.

En la casa de mi abuela hay variedad de plantas medicinales, frutales y decorativas; mi abuela conoce todos los nombres y sus propiedades yo no he podido aprender de su sabiduría solo reconozco las mas comunes como la planta de sábila o aloe vera, la frutales como mango, mamon, limón, pero las medicinales por mas que me repitan su nombre y sus cualidades no logro aprenderlas.

En estos días me llamo mucho la atención una bella flor que salía de una de las plantas que he visto toda mi vida, le tomé muchas fotos porque me pareció tan hermosa y me acorde de esta valiosa comunidad de hive así que decidí investigar sobre la planta de caña la india y su flor.



Indian cane plant

This plant has many healing properties for the human body, it is healing, antiseptic, and diuretic, among the conditions it cures, are urinary tract infections, cystitis, kidney stones, cleans the eyes using it as eye drops, reduces inflammation of the prostate and stops bleeding.

I will not put how it is used because it is a delicate subject that should only be disseminated by experts on the subject and I am not writing a publication of natural medicine, I mention it as a general contribution.

Planta de caña la india

Esta planta tiene muchas propiedades curativas para el cuerpo humano, es cicatrizante, antiséptico y diuréticas, entre las afecciones que cura están las infecciones de orina, cistitis, piedra o arenilla en los riñones, limpia los ojos usándolo como colirio, reduce la inflamación de la próstata y frena las hemorragias.

No colocare como se utiliza porque es un tema delicado que solo debe ser difundido por expertos en el tema y tampoco estoy escribiendo una publicación de medicina natural, lo menciono como aporte general.

A real beauty @soyunasantacruz 😍 .. I wish I had all the knowledge from our grandparents about nature and the usages of all her creations .. before industrial revolutions and the age of the Internet there must have been a lot of it spread amoungs all classes of people .. a pity that so much knowledge already got lost nowadays

Thank you, it was a surprise for me to see that flower, I didn't know that plant bloomed like that.

Yes it is a pity, I think that because I have the facility to find the answers on the Internet is that it is difficult for me to plant in my mind names and recipes of the grandmother. It's not lack of interest, it's too much Internet. 😁😂

Thank you for stopping by to say hello, be well @adalger

The possibility for getting knowledge so fast without effort from the Internet is sometimes a problem .. nowadays people don't learn anymore or try to experiment as in former times where kpersonal knowledge was highly valued .. the Internet is like a medal with two sides in a way .. and misinformation can be everywhere and are hardly detectable anymore 😕
