Ludwigia bonariensis

A common species in the pantanal, and this I found right outside the buildings of SouthWild Pantanal.

Ludwigia bonariensis UV

In the light we humans see, this flower is uniformly yellow, with a hint of variance in the centre. In UV this variance is very dark and different from the outer areas of the petals. This is what the pollinating insects see. It’s like the bull’s eye of a dart-board. If you come here you […]

Krattmjølke (Epilobium montanum) UV

Ingen store overraskelser i UV lys – slik som eksempelvis potentillaer og skjermplanter, som ofte viser helt mørke områder vi ikke finner igjen i lyset vi mennesker ser.

Mosaic flower (Ludwigia sedioides)

My last day at Pousada Xaraés, and finally some rain! Not torrential, but at least sufficient to get the ground wet and muddy in some places. As I’m soon to leave, I stay close to the buildings and find lots of plant species new to me. I found none in bloom, so I wonder when […]

Ludwigia sp

The soil on this part of Pantanal (between Corumbá and Miranda) is in many places fine sand – just like a desert or a beach. Just after a couple of hundred metres on the private road leading to Pousada Xaraés you’ll encounter the deep sand – only passable by large trucks and 4x4s. It was […]

Krattmjølke (Epilobium montanum)

Hver frøkapsel inneholder rikelig med frø som lett føres med vinden som tar tak de de flortynne fjonene. Av den grunn er det svært vanskelig å bli kvitt mjølkene om de først har slått seg ned. For min del er det ikke noe behov for å bekjempe denne, da den aldri blir dominerende her.

Krattmjølke (Epilobium montanum)

Krattmjølke er som ugress og regne, og særdeles spredningsdyktig. Likevel lar jeg den stå de fleste steder da den har flotte blomster og frøkapsler, samt er en del av næringsmangfoldet til pollinatorer.
