Fun Facts about Plants from Your Friendly Botany Major

• Cacti are some of the only plants to photosynthesize from their stems. Their needles are really just modified leaves.

• Avocados are only around because people pollinate and disperse them by hand. The large seed is indigestible to small mammals now. It was originally eaten by giant sloths who would poop them out far away from the parent tree so they can grow. This is called an evolutionary anachronism.

• Banana candy does not taste like bananas because it was designed to taste like the Gros Michel banana which was eaten in the pre-1950s. It was wiped out by a fungus called panama disease. Since bananas are asexual all of them are genetically identical making it easy to wipe them all out at once. However fungus is sexual so it evolves more quickly. This means eventually we may lose the modern banana, the Cavendish, to it as well.

• There are actually three different types of photosynthesis: C3, C4, and CAM. Which type is used depends on the aridness of the environment, and are increasingly more efficient as listed.

• Moss is amazing. The fuzzy part of the moss is called the gametophyte stage and it is haploid meaning it has one set of chromosomes like a sperm or an egg cell in humans. If you look closely, sometimes you will what look like little tiny seeds on stems coming out of the main body. This is the sporophyte stage and it’s diploid, or has two sets of chromosomes, like our body cells. Moss is the oldest type of plant.

• You can usually tell what animal pollinates a plant by the color and shape of its flowers. Red flowers are hardly ever pollinated by bees because bees cannot see red well. Butterfly flowers have long deep centers. Bird pollinated plants can bear weight and are wide and open. Bat pollinated plants usually smell strongly and are darkly colored.

• Almost all American native elms and chestnut trees are extinct because of fungi. Asian chestnut and elm have replaced them, because they are resistant to the strains.

• There is a type of fern that has over 1200 chromosomes. For reference, humans have 46.

• If you shine consistent low level red light on a plant it will grow extremely tall, because red light tells the plant it is being shaded by and competing with other plants. If you shine consistent green light on a plant it will not sprout or die (if already sprouted) because plants absorb red and blue light to use. This is also why plants are green, because the unused green light is reflected back out.

TLDR; Plants are frickin cool and should get as much love as our animal friends.

nyanberri  asked:

What if lil' Tsubaki says his first word and it's Mahi-Mahi??

I am so sorry this is a late reply @nyanberri​ forgive me.

But that’s adorable I think. ^^ But you know what else? What if baby Tsubaki had trouble saying “Mahi” or “Mahiru”? So he just says “Ma” or even “mama??” :D

Later~

“He’ll get bored of saying it eventually….”

I couldn’t get this idea out of my head, once I think of it, I can’t be stopped lol. I hope you enjoyed this!!! :D Also baby Tsu Tsu has said “bye! bye!” in other comics haha~

FINALLY ANOTHER AGE AU COMIC!~

also bonus haah I made a gif because I can:

Now I can feel slightly less guilty about the lack of update on this au, I have another comic in progress so it should be done soon?? ^^; Thanks for the ask!

Edit: How can I be so forgetful!!!?? wonderfulchaos69 made a fan fic awhile ago about the kids calling Mahiru “mom” You guys should read it if you enjoyed this, the fic is wayyyyy cuter than the crack I made above. Haha~ Please and thank you! :D

DONE WITH ALL THE EVIL EXPRESSION REQUESTSSS!!!! Man, it took a week I think??? But whatever, I did it! It was great practice! Thanks so much to everyone who sent one in!!! Decided to put them all together once again! :D I did C2 at least 4 times lol

(and if you noticed I didn’t do one, it’s probably cause you are one of the people who sent a request, anyways, even though I said THEY WERE ALREADY CLOSED multiple times. So sorry. :( ) 

6 Servamp, 2 Haikyuu and 2 Bungou Stray Dog characters. My goodness. ^^; 

When your Nii-san doesn’t wanna play so you gotta keep booping him.



I waited for our internet to come back till like 11pm and it was futile… ;;A;;) Why must bad weather always waste my time…. sigh… Anyways, at least there was electricity… I ended up drawing while waiting. I saw this gif before of a cat just coming up to another relaxed cat just to paw its face and leave afterwards and the relaxed cat looked like it didnt give a fck or something— So I thought I’ll use that as reference. 


Now… how many times must Tsubaki boop Kuro for the cat to finally chase him? xDDD

You tried Tsubaki.👍 Sakuya be nice he’s just trying to fit in. lol

So I found the first page I did of this from months ago for my own amusement(and feels) and then decided to make 2 more pages today. Pffft I am so sorry. Nothing like outdated art memes. 💚💚💚👌

I've had it with the stans.......

This fandom is chock full of some of the most toxic people I’ve ever had to interact with. How is it, five lovely young Ladies, attracted such filth. I have had the misfortune of reading some of the most vile comments, directed toward anyone who isn’t their favorites. It’s getting beyond ridiculous. The stans need to either GROW UP or SHUT UP.

Hair and Eye color Switch!

*gasp* So THAT was what that group picture was for! xD
I dont know what I am doing with my life tbh
But this was fun to do  and… so…weird… seeing them…like this… It’s so….WEIRD. //kicked

Anyways, tell me who looks good with the color switch and who’s the funniest!

xDDDD Personally, I like the purple-haired Lily because he looks so elegant like that. Much more alluring too!! And the funniest for me would be Tsubaki BECAUSE TSUBAKI  omgomogmogmogmo xDDDD Who’s the cabbage now? //kicked

When Sakuya offered his help with babysitting, he seriously didn’t expect this many children…. no one does. Mahiru is gonna have to explain to World End later that Sakuya isn’t a criminal also. lol

Mahiru and Sakuya are actual childhood friends in this au btw, so they know each other weaknesses. For example, Sakuya being called Sakkun. (Which I based off this Servamp Drama CD again, where Sakuya CANONALLY gets embarrassed about Mahiru calling him Sakkun!! Go to 8:28 if you click the link) and Sakuya’s older sister is alive in this au too, in case some of you didn’t already know.  

I’ve been working this looooong comic for awhile bit by bit between other art asks. Cause I wanted a few things:

1.) I wanted to at least mention the servamp kids “parent”. (aka “sensei” or the “creator”) I mean who do you think actually provides for 8 children??? We never see him really either cause he’s always working or whatever.

2.) I thought since Sakuya is indeed Mahiru’s best friend in this au, I thought he would have to officially meet the Servamp family at some point. Lol the last time I introduced Sakuya, it became my most popular age au post. Amazing right? 

3.) One more thing, I felt like Little Tsubaki and Sakuya had to meet at some point. It the right thing to do. They still don’t get along well even at alternate ages. hhaaha. 

4.) I know, you people wanted more KuroMahi and some SakuMahi, (I read everyone’s tags so…. ehehheeh…) 

Anyways thank you to everyone who supports this au! I wouldn’t have posted this much if it wasn’t for you all! <3
