Why Do Plants That Normally Reach The Knee Of An Average Adult,

like buckwheat, burdock and butterbur,

grow up to 5 meters tall on the island of Sakhalin, located in the Russian Far East? all sorts of theories have been put forward, according to a 2009 report in Russian newspaper Izvestia, Russian scientists had long been studying the giant plants that grew in certain regions of Sakhalin Island, buckwheat plants up to 3 meters tall, burdock leaves that reached 5 meters are just a few of the giant plants on the island, photographs oddity central, 

researchers from the Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics and from the Russian Academy of Sciences reportedly carried out studies of unusually large herbaceous plants in 12 different areas in the south of Sakhalin and Kunashir islands, and found that the gigantic plants only grew in certain areas of the islands, and seemed to be influenced by frequent tectonic activity that give off significant heat, among other factors,

but here is the thing, when taken out of the environment and planted elsewhere, they only grew to their ordinary size, the gigantic plants grow on gley, a waterlogged soil located above the faults of the Earth’s crust, through which a large amount of heat and petroleum hydrocarbons are supplied to the roots of plants, also a higher concentration of copper and chromium compounds was also identified as a potential factor of extraordinary growth, if only the secret of this exceptional growth could be found, what a great way to help feed the world.
