大坑東遊樂場近界限街有新蓋的大坑東蓄洪池,白色的建築物外牆以攀緣植物作為裝飾,約干年後,外牆便會完全被植物覆蓋,添上一層綠色外衣.

植物主要為是異葉爬山虎Parthenocissus dalzielii,在左下角有小量的薜荔.異葉爬山虎的葉形變化多端,有3小葉組成的複葉,有多裂單葉.秋冬時葉片轉紅,有不錯的效果.

谷主會每隔數月拍照一次,作為""的記錄.未變之前,你又想不想到它未來的樣子呢?

There is a newly constructed Tai Hang Tung storage tank (for flood water) at Tai Hang Tung Recreation Ground near Boundary Street.   The façade of this white building is decorated with climbing plants.  In some years, it will be completely clothed with a green jacket.

The climbing plants are mainly Diverse-leaved creeper (Parthenocissus dalzielii) with petty Creeping fig (Ficus pumila) at the bottom left corner.  As its name suggests, the leaf shape of Diverse-leaved creeper is changeful.  Some are trifoliate compound leaves; some are multi-lobed single leaves.  They also turn red when autumn arrives and it’s not bad at all to have a new seasonal look.  

I will take pictures once every few months as a record of its "transformation".  Before any changes take place, can you imagine how it will look in future?

牆上藏有多條龍,你找到幾多條呢?

大自然的奇妙總是出人意料.讓我們站在這塊牆前面,逐一將龍發掘出來,勾勒出牠們的形狀,給牠們一個名字.有帶相機的,可以把牠們拍下來,寫 幾個字再電郵給你的朋友 .個人體驗和與朋友分享都是開心的事情.

A number of dragons are harbored on the wall.  How many do you find?

Wonders of nature are always unpredictable.  Let us stand in front of the wall and find them out one by one, outline their shapes, and give them a name.  If you have a camera with you, then take a picture, write a few words and email to your friends.  This kind of experience and the sharing with friends are real fun.

異葉爬山虎指的是它的葉片有2個形狀,有單葉的,也有三出複葉.而它的"虎爪"更是它爬山的工具.

Diverse-leaved creeper (Parthenocissus dalzielli) refers to its two leaf forms:  single and trifoliate compound leaves.  Its "tiger claw", i.e., its suction cup, is its climbing tool. (Its Chinese name is爬山虎, which means “climbing tiger”.)

薜荔/文頭郎是另一種常用的牆身綠衣裳.它有一大缺點便是果實重疊疊的會伸出牆身,甚至整棵植物拉下來.

Creeping fig (Ficus pumila) is another commonly used evergreen jacket for walls.  It has a major drawback that its heavy piles of fruit will be hung beyond the walls and even may pull down the whole plant.

由於時間關係,谷主找來一個完成的例子,在米埔自然保護區內的一所已被覆蓋建築物,所見的植物是薜荔

Because of the time restraint, I find a “transformed” specimen to show you.  Here is a building completely covered with Creeping fig in the Mai Po Nature Reserve.
