The world is home to a variety of plants that are not yet identified. These unidentified plants can be found in different parts of the world, and some have been growing for thousands of years. It might seem like these plants would be easy to identify because they come from such well-known locations; but there is still no answer as to where they are from or what they represent. In this blog post, we will explore why unidentified plants appear all over the globe and how you can go about identifying them yourself! The first unidentified plant is called the Bay tree. This plant can be found in many different parts of the world, but it’s unclear where these plants originated from. Some believe that they originated in Europe and migrated to other countries through trade routes, while others argue that this type of bay tree was originally cultivated on Mount Lebanon. It is still unknown exactly how or when these trees were distributed across the globe because there are no records before 1600 AD detailing their journey.
Another known example is mistletoe; a common Christmas decoration which comes with its own legends about being magical and symbolic for kissing under a hanging branch at night time around December 24th, as long as you’re not caught by anyone else! These types are often associated with fertility and are thought to be aphrodisiacs because they contain a chemical called viscotoxin. Christmas is the time where we can see many different types of mistletoe, but there could also be one growing somewhere nearby (in your garden or on a tree in the park) that you didn’t even know was mistletoe! You can tell by looking for these small white berries which will usually have a red spot on them.
Other plants with unknown origins include:
The Japanese puzzle leafless nettle; found in Asia and Australia as well as other parts of the world like Africa, South America, North America and Europe. Scientists believe it migrated through trade routes from Asia towards southern USA during the 1800s. The Peruvian seagrape; found on the coast of Peru, Chile and Brazil as well as other parts of South America like Argentina and Bolivia. It’s believed to have been brought to these coasts from Africa in the 18th century due to trade routes via Portuguese ships where they would take fruits or vegetables back with them for their voyages.
Borneo nutmeg; this plant is native only to Brunei but has spread through Southeast Asia because it was grown by plantations during colonial times and then shipped out again all over the world because its so profitable! There are many reasons why plants can be difficult to identify including: hybridization (when different species come together), human ignorance about what lives where, and even just human error.
Some of the most commonly identified species are:
African violet; native to Africa but found all over the world in tropical climates where its cared for as a houseplant or grown outside during warm seasons like summertime Amaryllis belladonna; native to Argentina but also found everywhere because it’s often planted around Christmas time at holiday celebrations.
Begonia boliviensis is only known from Bolivia where it grows high up on cliffsides and has been used medicinally by locals there since ancient times. It was first brought down when an American doctor named Walter Hough arrived in La Paz in 1896 after he fell off his donkey while exploring these same cliffs! You can also find unrecognized plants in your own backyard, if you take the time to look.
How to find unidentified plants:
Look for local plant nurseries and see if they can identify your mystery plant. If not, you might have a species that’s new to the country! These are called “intraspecific” or “endemic” types of plants. In other words, they’re only found in one certain area where their environment is suited to them so it’s easier for all these different varieties of life forms to grow! Go on a botanical exploration with someone who knows what he/she is doing. Some places like conservatories and science museums will allow you into parts of their grounds where weeds may be growing but typically reserved as natural habitats – this is also worth exploring when looking at unknown plants.
Online, you can find databases that help identify plants by their leaves and flowers (typically the most recognizable parts of a plant). If all else fails, get in touch with your local botanical garden! They’ll have someone who knows his/her stuff about the flora around him or her. Some plants have flowers or fruit that are readily identifiable. Others will need to be determined by their leaves, where they grow, and the season in which you find them. There are some very common species of weeds (most notably) dandelions – but there’s also a ton of other edible sorts as well! The best way to figure out what kind of plant it is? Take a sample back home with you if possible for identification at your local library/herbarium. If not, take notes on the appearance and surrounding environment so someone else can help identify it later.”
