Bulbasaurus plants are known for their adorable and unique plant pots that resemble miniature miniature aquariums.
They are often planted in public spaces such as parks and playgrounds and have been a symbol of the state’s love of nature.
Now, Bulbasaus are making their home in a new potting shed in the Alabama Department of Natural Resources’ Plant Conservation Service facility in Birmingham.
It was unveiled on Friday.
The new plant potting facilities are part of a $10 million expansion of the facility that includes new tools, equipment and a new, $4.9 million space for plant identification, identification and identification monitoring.
“It’s a very nice addition,” said Rebecca Fink, director of plant identification and research at the Department of Plant Resources.
“The potting sheds were part of the building that I’ve always liked, and I’ve had great relationships with them for a long time.”
Fink said the new facilities were built in collaboration with the Alabama Parks and Wildlife Department.
“This is a huge expansion,” she said.
“We are really excited about this.
It’s a huge step forward in the plant conservation process.”
The new facilities, located at the Plant Conservation Services facility in Hoover, are part, Fink explained, of a long-term plan to improve the quality and efficiency of plant identifications.
“There are many different types of plant that we have, and we have to make sure we are doing everything we can to make our plant identifiers as accurate as possible,” she explained.
“For us to be able to get to that point where we can have the best plant identification system that we can, we really have to invest in our technology and our staff.”
Plant identification systems are used to identify plant species and their growth stages.
“They’re the only tool that you can use to identify plants that you want to identify,” Fink told Al Jazeera.
“And they’re a really important tool for people in a conservation program to use to keep track of what’s going on.”
The plants in the new sheds are from the genus Bulbasaua, which means “small little ones” in Latin.
Fink has been monitoring Bulbasusaurus plants for more than 20 years and has documented their growth.
The plant identification systems have helped to identify more than 5,000 species, Finks said.
The Bulbasa plants, like many other plants, grow at different stages.
But Fink says Bulbasarusus are the only species that grow to maturity in a single location.
“When you look at these plants, they are basically all at different levels of maturity,” Finks explained.
Bulbasursa are found throughout the state, including the Gulf Coast.
Finks is the first to say that they are an important part of Alabama wildlife habitat, particularly the Gulf of Mexico, where Bulbasurusus grow.
“These plants are in the Gulf and they’re just right there,” she told Alja-Azizah.
“I don’t think it would be the same in any other part of our state.”
Finks says that in the past, there have been many questions about the plant identification kits and the identification process.
“As we’ve expanded the database to include a lot more species, there has been a lot of questions and a lot misinformation, and it’s been very frustrating for people,” she added.
“But we are seeing that it is actually helping us a lot, and people are using these kits.”
The department will not be releasing any more information on the new plants.
