Also known as snake grass or snake skin because of the zigzag shape of its stem, this plant is full of surprises. For example: when roasted, it eliminates coughs and asthma; mixed with wine, alleviates symptoms of the menstrual cycle; mashed with honey, it heals sores; in a juice, it reduces eyesight problems and, in the form of eye drops, helps with childbirth. But there’s a catch! When it matures, it emits for a period a particular smell of meat that attracts the flies that pollinate it. Flowers of the world, is there anything more fascinating?
