Potentilla nepalensis
Family:Rosaceae (Rose family)

A bank of blooming Nepal cinquefoil is one of the most beautiful sights in the Himalayas. This flower grows at heights of 2100-2700 m. It is found in meadows, light forests and verges of paths and fields.
This seems to be the only one with rosy pink flowers.
The Nepal cinquefoil has five heart-shaped petals of a deep rose-crimson color and measures about 1-2 cm across.
The five ovate, toothed leaflets are arranged finger-fashion or digitately.
The colour of this flower varies from crimson to rose to orange in some areas.
A decorative design known as the cinquefoil- likened to the petals of the flower- with five cusps is often used in windows and arches as a motif. 🌸: June-September.

I am standing here with Ficus religiosa, but does it release Oxygen at night?😮
.
.
Plants take in carbon dioxide (CO2) and release oxygen (O2) during day time when they undergo the process of photosynthesis and they take in O2 and release CO2 during night as a result of respiration.

There are 3 photosynthesis pathways adapted by plants for carbon fixation namely C3 pathway (Calvin cycle), C4 pathway and CAM pathway (Crassulacean Acid Metabolism). C3 and C4 are common among land plants and among these two, C3 is the most common.

CAM pathway can be seen in desert plants and epiphytes (i.e. plants that live on other plants). Unlike C3 and C4 plants, these plants keep their stomata closed during day and open it during night for fix CO2 in the form of malate and releases O2. They do it so, to prevent loss of water due to sunlight. During the day, they breakdown the malate and use the released CO2 through Kalvin cycle to produce sugars, similar to C3 plants. So, CAM plants releases oxygen during night.

Peepal tree is a hemi-epiphyte in its native habitat i.e. the seeds germinate and grow as an epiphyte on other trees and then when the host-tree dies, they establish themselves in the soil. When they live as an epiphyte, they use CAM pathway to produce carbohydrates and when they live on soil, they switch to C3 type photosynthesis. So, a Peepal tree can also release oxygen during the night depending on whether it is an epiphyte or not.

Common name: Asparagus Fern, Sprenger Asparagus, Foxtail Asparagus
Botanical name: Asparagus densiflorus  Family:Asparagaceae (Asparagus family)

Asparagus Fern is a weed native to South Africa, which is very commonly used as an ornamental house-plant. It is an evergreen perennial herb emerging from a crown of tuberous roots. It is a drooping, bushy plant usually only to 2-4 ft tall, and several feet wide, with stems stiff or spreading-arching. Larger branches usually bearing minute axillary spines. Branchlets (cladophylls) are flat, needle-like, light bright green, to 1 inch long, clustered at branch nodes. Leaves tiny, scale-like, at bases of branchlets. Flowers small, white or pinkish white, and fragrant. Fruit is a bright red berry about 8 mm in diameter; 3 seeds per fruit.🌍🌱

Curved-Hood Cobra Lily
Botanical name: Arisaema tortuosum var. curvatum
Family: Araceae (Arum family)

Curved-Hood Cobra Lily is a species of Cobra Lily with green hood, having whitish stripes. Leaves are usually 2, with 11-13 leaflets, which are linear to lanceshaped, 9-19 cm long, 0.6-1.7 cm wide. The spathe consists of a tube 5.4-5 cm long, cylindrical, gradually broadening into an ovate, pointed hood, larger than the tube. Spadix appendage is 8-19 cm long , stout, at first curved and then prolonged upright beyond the limb, black when dry. Curved-Hood Cobra Lily can be confused with Whipcord Cobra Lily, but that one has leaves with 5-7 leaflets which are broader, ovate to inverted-lanceshaped. Curved-Hood Cobra Lily is found in the Himalayas, at altitudes of 1500-2500 m.
Flowering: June-July.

Himalayan forests are rich in flora and fauna and many of which are found at very high altitude, there is one such plant commonly called as a self heal and heal of the earth, #Prunella vulgaris var. vulgaris grows at the altitude of 1500-3600m, its pollinator bumblebee enters to the corolla which touches it's head to the stamens and collects the nectar and also pollinates the flower.
