Heritage Tree, Saga (Adenanthera pavonina inside Singapore Botanical Gardens

The tree is common within the tropics of the old world. It has also been introduced in the following countries of the America

Brazil, especially in Caatinga vegetation; Costa Rica, Honduras, Cuba, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Trinidad, Tobago, Venezuela, and the United States, especially in southern Florida.

Uses

This tree is useful for nitrogen fixation, and it is often cultivated for forage, as an ornamental garden plant or urban tree, and as a medicinal plant. For example, the young leaves can be cooked and eaten. The raw seeds are toxic, but may be eaten when cooked.

Adenanthera pavonina seeds have long been a symbol of love in China, and its name in Chinese is xiang si dou (Chinese: 相思豆), or “mutual love bean”. The beauty of the seeds has led to them being used as beads for jewellery. Renowned botanist Edred Corner states that in India, the seeds have been used as units of weight for fine measures, of gold for instance, throughout recorded history because the seeds are known to be almost identical weights to each other. Indeed, the Malay name for the tree, saga, has been traced to the Arabic for ‘goldsmith’. The small, yellowish flower grows in dense drooping rat-tail flower heads, almost like catkins. The curved hanging pods, with a bulge opposite each seed, split open into two twisted halves to reveal the hard, scarlet seeds. This tree is used for making soap, and a red dye can be obtained from the wood. The wood, which is extremely hard, is also used in boat-building, making furniture and for firewood.

The tree is fast-growing, with an attractive, spreading canopy that makes it suitable as a shade tree, and for ornamental purposes in large gardens or parks. However, it is also known for producing lots of litter in the form of leaves, twigs and especially seed pods which crack open while still on the branch, so releasing their seeds, before themselves falling to the ground.

In traditional medicine, a decoction of the young leaves and bark of Adenanthera pavonina is used to treat diarrhoea. Also, the ground seeds are used to treat inflammation.Preliminary scientific studies appear to support these traditional uses. In vitro studies show that Adenanthera pavonina leaf extract has antibacterial activity against the intestinal pathogen Campylobacter jejuni. Also, high doses of seed extract have an anti-inflammatory effect in studies in rats and mice.

Chemical constituents

Adenanthera pavonina is a source of aliphatic natural products (O-acetylethanolamine and 1-octacosanol), carbohydrate (galactitol), simple aromatic natural products (2,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid), flavonoids (ampelopsin, butein, dihydrorobinetin, and robinetin), terpenoids (echinocystic acid and oleanolic acid), steroids (daucosterol, β-sitosterol, and stigmasterol), amino acids and peptides (2-amino-4-ethylidenepentanedioic acid and γ-methyleneglutamine), and alkaloids (O-acetylethanolamine and 1H-imidazole).

Top 5 luckiest Minecraft seeds

In Minecraft, everything from structure generation to terrain formation is dependent on the world seed. Seeds are a bunch of numbers or letters used by Minecraft to create the world.

Unless specified, Minecraft uses a random seed out of 18 quintillion available options. Instead of using a random seed, players can use pre-found seeds to get desired world generation at the spawn location or any other place.

Using seeds, players can easily get valuable structures like villages and strongholds at the spawn point or get rare ores. Some seeds can have multiple structures at spawn.

A list of the luckiest Minecraft seeds to try

5) Lucky Nether spawn (Seed: -5587104679448810605)

This 1.17 Java Edition seed has a lucky spawn in the Nether realm. Players can create a portal at the Overworld spawn location and enter it to spawn in a fortress. Inside, players will find three diamonds, enough to make a diamond pickaxe.

After looting the fortress, players can head towards the bastion remnant at X: -192 Z: 48 to barter with piglins, loot their chests, and steal their gold.

4) Multiple blacksmiths (Seed: -1775767453)

Blacksmith houses are one of the easiest ways to get valuable items in early-game. In this 1.17 Bedrock Edition seed, players can find a plain biome village with four blacksmiths. By looting their chests, players can get useful items like iron. diamonds, obsidians, tools, armor, etc.

Players will spawn in an average taiga village. After spawning, go to X: 550 Z: 500 to find the blacksmith village.

3) An abandoned village near badlands biome (Seed: -9552767)

In this 1.17 Bedrock seed, players spawn between a badlands biome and an abandoned village. Badlands are among the rarest biomes in Minecraft. This seed gives access to terracotta right from the start.

Players can also go to the abandoned village to loot chests, but be careful of zombie villagers. This village has a blacksmith so that players can find some diamonds.

2) Glitched end portal (Seed: 6272098237627493047)

In Minecraft, there is a one in a trillion chance for a portal to generate pre-activated with 12 eyes of ender. But this 1.16 Java Edition seed features something much rarer than that: a pre-activated glitched portal.

This weird generation occurred due to the portal frame being in four different chunks. Players can go to X: -320 Y: 39 Z: 1360 to find this rare glitched portal. This seed is pretty lucky for speedrunners as there is no need to go to the Nether.
