Specimens of Figjam (ficus narcissus) in the botanic park today #syconium

#Ficus stands out in rainy season,either because the tree will be gorgeously green or because some of them starts fruiting all over the bark or branches.
As my new commuting route is high streets and always jammed with cars and motorbikes,i start this new game of "how many ficus we can find within 200 metres walk" to maintain my peaceful mind (also because i only saw ficus in the street,a poor neighbourhood with not many trees around).
So,do you know how many kind of ficus are there in this picture?😃

My new love 🍂🍂🍂
#SYCONIUM by Maria Candida Gentile. Короче не важно, но какая то Кандида.😂 Заливаюсь с головы до ног. Понимаю, что этого малыша 15 мл мне надолго не хватит, но, черт, как же удобно его в сумке таскать! ❤️

Over successful polination on Ficus racemosa's syconium. These are images of syconium that is naturally opened with rows of both seeds and galls of wasps (with larva wasps inside the galls).
The ripe and red "fruit" or syconium of F. racemosa is actually sweet,although not as sweet as common figs.
Yet,because this Ficus tree is normally very successfully inhibited by wasps,it is not common to find them in the market. Monks won't eat them because they are afraid that there will be wasps inside the "fruit". #ficus #syconium #ficusracemosa #buahara #ara #buahloe

While fig chamber is believed to be a safe nursery room for wasps, yesterday I unluckily met a not-so-happy relationship in one of inside-out flower of Ficus hispida, the hairy-leaf Ficus.
From outside, the syconium (fruit-like structure which is actually hidden group of flowers) of F. hispida seemed fine and healthy.
Flip the syconium, and you see the upper part of the #syconium, the petiolaris bracts, were ruined,and it is evident that there were massive attacts to this part.
Later when the syconium was sliced open, groups of wasp were agresively coming out.
You will think that they were the pollinator wasps of this fig.
But,wait,look at the brown colour long "tail" wasps.Those were not pollinator wasps of this Fig tree. Those are the parasitic wasps, #Apocrypta spp. that were invading the syconium after the pollinator wasps,Ceratosolen solmsi, getting into the syconium and put their eggs inside the galls.
From the poor quality of pictures, you can notice few survivors of pollinator wasps inside (the tiny black wasps),while the rest of their siblings have been eaten by the parasitic wasps.
The parasitic wasps have a hard-driller-tip ovipositor (tail-look structure) ,that enables them to bore into figs without breaking, unlike the spoon-shaped ovipositor of pollinator wasps.

This had to be one of my favourites this week. I choose my own fragrance by how I feel, so at the moment it's cold and raining ☔️ so I'm enjoying being in a warm and cosy environment with the scent of Syconium burning. This scent is soulfully warming, gently sweet with a hint of the forest 🌳 #fragrance #syconium #forest #figs #cosy

My favourite wild & delicious fragrance this week #syconium #fragrance #pure #soy #eco #luxury #designercollection

If there is such a person who finds fig perfumes too figgy but still wants to play along, Maria Candida Gentile's Syconium is your answer.

Hold my hand here and try not to get turned off: this fragrance has a weird quality that reminds me of industrial handsoap my grandfather used for scrubbing engine grease from his fissured calluses (possibly Lava brand soap, but perhaps I’m misremembering). Which is to say: the sandalwood has a perplexing astringent lye character, and in fact, the whole thing has a mesmerizing thinness, like a perfume rendered in 2D. I feel as though I’ve bitten into a banana skin and all the moisture in my mouth has evaporated. It’s not a negative experience, but it is quite unexpected in a fig perfume.

In other Bizarro World News, I found Syconium’s scent pyramid to be neatly inverted: sandalwood party in the front, milk and honey party in the rear. Fig shows up somewhere in the middle to say hello, but it is just as dry as the sandalwood and has somewhere else to be. How it manages to make the milk and honey just as arid as the rest I’ll never know.

Of note: perfumes rarely make me sneeze, but this one really did. (Photo from doityourself.com but no attribution provided. It is quite difficult to find a photo of a fig tree that looks parched and not lush.)
