Transcription[edit | edit source]

Funkia, also known as hosta, is a herbaceous plant with heart-shaped, green leaves with bright edges and small pendulous flowers, white or violet. At least that's what the funkia used by the natives from South America looks like - its numerous varieties vary in height, coloring and shape of leaves, which can be long or round. This shade-tolerant, easy to maintain plant is cultivated in many countries around the world, usually for ornamental purposes. In Asia, people eat its young leaves and sprouts.

In rain forests, full of venomous snakes and toxic frogs, the visual value of this species comes second. The most important are its medicinal properties, which come from chemical compounds called saponins. Saponins have anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. They make funka poisonous to cats and dogs, but to humans, especially those living in the middle of the jungle with no access to modern medicine, they can be a real life saver.

A bandage made out of funkia leaves works great for an ant bite or bee sting. The substances found in the plant can soothe irritation or rash. In the event of a snake attack, one should consume cooked leaves and sprouts as soon as possible. The brew will effectively fight the effect of venom. Of course, funkia can also be eaten simply to satisfy hunger.

The versatility of funkia makes it one of the most popular plants among the natives living in the Amazon forests.
