The species grows as small bush that produces a dozen of flowers. The flowers themselves have five petals each, forming a bulbous capsule that contains the pollen.
Ecology and Habitats
It adapts well to nearly any environment, but it grows better in the shade of larger trees. It's often kept inside small pots that can be moved around easily.
Uses, Products & Exploitation
The pollen is turned into a powder that pauses the menstrual cycle in women. It's often dissolved in water or drunk as a tea. It's a very convenient contraceptive, but some women have to be careful with dosage or suffer strong cramps, nausea and headaches as their body tries to achieve a new balance, thus it is advisable to wane off gradually.
