Contains toxins: alkaloid & phytoaccotoxin All of the plant is poisonous Symptoms occur about 2 hours after consumption Severe gastric-intestinal irritation; nausea; vomiting; purging; retching; spasms; and severe convulsions; death results from the paralysis of the respiratory organs
What are the three categories that vines can be separated into and describe them.
Clingers: grasp rough surfaces by means of rootlets or adhesive disks Twiners: climb by encircling upright vertical support Winders: Climb using tendrils
What are the titles of Tables 2 and 4 in the article: Drought Tolerant Plants for North and Central Florida?
Table 2: Drought tolerant palms for North and Central Florida Table 4: Drought tolerant groundcovers for North and Central Florida
If you wanted to know more about weeds and wanted to use the same references as the FCHP manual, what publication would you use?
General Principles of Weed Management, Vernon V. Vandiver and David Teem
You have a holding area with plants where there is a constant wind of 8 mph. You want to make sure you have the most irrigation coverage possible. What kind of spacing would you use and what is the percentage of coverage you would expect?
You just bought a new home and need to install turf. Through careful testing, you have determined that you do not have nematodes and salt will not be a problem. You want a drought tolerant plant and your yard is in full sun. What turf would you use?
You think your turf is sick. There are no distinct patches present nor orange spots on the leaves. There are leaf spots present and are primarily on centipedegrass. There are reddish-brown to brown spots surrounded by a yellow halo. What is the diagnosis of your turf?
To monitor your lawn of this insect pest, you should cut the grass 2 inches deep in a 1 foot square area of damaged grass and look for the insects and also check the quality of the roots. You should also monitor the sky during the night.
You have to fertilize 1000 sq ft of landscape and you want to apply one pound of nitrogen to the area. Determine how many pounds of fertilizer you will need if you have purchased a 10-8-10 fertilizer?
10-8-10 fertilizer over 1000 sq ft and you only want to apply 1 pound of nitrogen per foot. 100/10 = 10 pounds of fertilizer is needed
You have a hibiscus in the landscape and you need to fertilize it. You have tested the soil and discover you have low phosphorous and very low potassium. How much phosphorous pentoxide and potassium oxide should your plant receive? Bonus: Potassium should be divided into how many applications?
You should apply 0.3 pounds of phosphorous pentoxide and 0.7 pounds of potassium oxide to 1000 sq ft per year. Bonus: Potassium oxide application should be spread out over 3 separate applications during the year.
