Poisonous plant – Gold Coin tree 金钱树是无形杀手

February 10th, 2011

Poisonous plantDo you have this plant at home? beware of it because too hazard to health!    Hey friend…some of you don’t read Chinese language but never mind, please take note because this is really too alarming to be ignored & i must share w/u guys…Basically this article warns about the highly poisonous plant as shown below…so please be aware now that it seems too hazardous to be placed at home, in office or anywhere near our dwelling places!

Apart fr the poison in the sap of the leaves which causes irritation, inflamation or swelling of the face & jaw esp those with allergic skin when come into contact, this plant is useless in terms of air purification, absorption of other harmful or even cancer causing gases in the air e.g.CO2, CH2O(Formaldehyde),C2-H-Cl3(Trichloroethylene)…in fact, even the soil where the plant used to grow wld also turn poisonous! So, don’t use the soil to plant veggies.  Even, insects, ants will not go near to this plant.

Oh dear!  too bad, so sad 🙁 don’t u think?….such a nice, strong yet elegant plant liked by many just like myself!  Incidentally, the Chinese particularly loves this plant owing to it’s common name “Gold Coin” tree I guess?? & its glamor & popularity are so amazing during CNY time…esp w/little red ribbons tied to its branches!

Anyway for now, just to be safe, probably we can only be “distant admirers” of this lovely plant ya!

Take care…GOD BLESS!

金钱树 (泽米芋) —— 珍宝还是无形杀手?

相信网友曾经看过这观叶植物。

泽米芋——学名为Zamioculcas zamiifolia ,又名金钱树、雪铁芋、泽米叶天南星、龙凤木,为天南星科、雪铁芋属的罕见观叶植物,作为一种以观叶为主的常绿草本植物。它原产于非洲东部,为林下多年生植物,耐荫、耐旱,怕高湿,怕低温、怕雨淋。金钱树,其实不是树。树一般都是木本,而金钱树却是多年生常绿草本植物。

为何被称作“金钱树”或“金币树”呢?它这令人诱人的名字,不管你上看下看,左看右看,完全没有一点像金钱的样子。它的叶子是卵形冠上金钱两字,会不会有点不伦不类。其拉丁文的种加词“zamiifolia”,意为“泽米叶的”,也就是说它是一种叶片同泽米苏铁(Zamia furfuracea)很相似的天南星类植物,即“泽米叶天南星”。
“金钱”、“金币”之名,可能与其叶轴上的叶片形状、质地、排序有关,它的圆筒形叶轴粗壮而肥腴,其上的小叶呈偶数羽状排列,且叶质厚实、叶色光亮,宛若一挂串连起来的钱币。

金钱树是近年来流行起来的观赏花卉。不论走到任何行业的店铺,办公室或者住宅区,很容易发现到金钱树。有人还自认载种金钱树觉得很自豪,却不知道夺命符已一步一步接近你,其杀伤力分分钟会在你的健康爆发。

金钱树是一种剧毒植物。它的毒比断肠草还要更毒。它的叶汁沾在敏感皮肤上,五官,牙床,会肿胀。对一些曾叶在荒野生长的泽米芋,飞禽走兽,蜂蝶爬虫都不会接近它,同时生长在周边的植物,也会枯死,可见其毒无比。所以,发现有其他可以食用的草本同盆生长,希望大家千万记得别採来药用,否则会死得不明不白。家有此类植物的人士,绝对要小心处理。不要把载种金钱树泥土加入其他食用本草中,它的毒素仍然留在泥土中。

如果你家买了此类植物,最好把它摆远一点,不要让老小接触到它。金钱树也不要放在窗下,它的毒气会影响房中人的健康。如果你不舍弃种,最好多种两三盆虎尾兰,巴西铁树,吊兰等。它们不但可以净化,吸收漂浮在空中有害的气体,二氧化碳 CO2,甲醛 CH2O (Formaldehyde),三氯乙烯C2-H-Cl3(Trichloroethylene)等致癌的气。

人人都视为它如珍宝,都认为摆一盆可招财。若真有效力,那就不会为钱而烦恼,天下再没有穷人,也不会缺钱而向阿隆借钱,更不会有人为钱而死。

千富万富,健康才是真正的财富…… !
