This is a fascinating story coming from our very own Lagos, Naija! Only seven minutes long talk. I learnt so much about usefulness of hyacinth plant. I have seen these plants so many times that I never thought it could be this useful to turn to household and office items.
And so many names given to hyacinth from all of our regions and political meaning attached to each is just eye-opening – all of this is completely new to me. I never knew hyacinth is called ‘gbeborun‘ (busybody).
Ms Achenyo Idachaba is such an incredible speaker, concise and very informative with lots of wit (one needs to know a bit about Nigeria to get the joke).
I do hope this is harvested in a way that encourages more growth – I bet they likely provide shelter/shade for some aquatic dwellers.
Enjoy this wonderful talk, hope you learn something new like I did.
