Florist Daisy Chrysanthemum morifolium
For centuries human beings have had a relationship with plants. They have been used in religious ceremonies, medicinal applications, incense, construction, dye,
symbolism, and much more. Many of these plants are use in the mass production of pharmaceutical grade medicines, perfumes, and other useful applications. The Florist's
daisy ( scientific name Chrysanthemum morifolium ) is no different. below I will discuss the many uses and even the science behind this plant.
One of the most popular uses for the Florist daisy ( also known as Hardy garden mum ) is an indoor houseplant capable of cleaning the air. This has been proven in a
study conducted by NASA. The herb is shown to remove benzene, formaldehyde, ammonia and other chemicals from the air. This means that having this plant around can
literally improve ones quality of life by enhancing their health.
Other Medicinal Qualities
This species is also used in alternative healing for its effects on the eyes. In ancient Chinese Medicine the herb is utilized for correcting imbalances in the liver
and kidney function that may lead to blurred vision, dizziness, dry red eyes, excessive tearing, or spots in front of the eyes. It's also used to treat headaches
associated with infections, carbuncles, furuncles, and vertigo. The plant contains a naturally occurring chemical that's shown to fight staph infections of the skin.
It should be fertilized once a month and watered around two to three times per week
depending on the climate. Hotter climates obviously call for more water. Plants should be fed with an organic fertilizer. You can make your own fertilizer for free
using what I like to call Earth Tea. Earth Tea or compost tea is essentially organic matter from the earth that's mixed with dirt and allowed to rot. Gather grass
clippings, pine needles and leaves, dirt, and other leaves and dying vegetation and mix them together. Allow this mixture to rot for several months until it's
decomposed well. Add water to the mixture and allow it to soak in the sun for several hours. Feed your plants with this natural earth tea fertilizer.
Florist Daisy ( C. morifolium ) is a target of aphids, capsid bugs, earwigs, leaf miners, nematodes, spider mites, thrips, and white flies. To prevent an
infestation of these plants I suggest making a home-made pesticide using the leaf of a plant called Mullein. Mullein is well known for its ability to ward of pest and even animals that threaten your garden. It also has
Caution: Not recommended for individuals with existing conditions of weakness. Only for use by highly trained professionals.
