Anyone who has been following Katalin Karikou on Facebook for years has already been waiting for the honorary citizen of Szeged, Nobel laureate, research professor and honorary doctorate from the University of Szeged, to post photos of her hyacinths, carefully grown in hydroponic culture, already blooming at the beginning of the year.
The world-famous researcher shared it with his followers in October: “The time has come: I arranged the hyacinth bulbs in pots that I filled with tap water. I placed the bulbs over the holes so that they would not touch the water. I covered them with a brown bag and put them all in an unheated room. Then at the beginning of January, we will see how they have developed, and we will put them in the kitchen window Until the sun rises.”
Since October, a lot has happened for Katalin Karikó, among other things, she received the prestigious award in scientific life in Stockholm from the King of Sweden. Meanwhile, his favorite lilies have developed beautifully, and he showed off the beautiful flowers in photos a few hours ago.
“Lilies also begin to bloom on this cold, snowy winter day.” – wrote the Nobel Prize-winning scientist, who celebrates his birthday today, and who has provided regular reports on the development of flowers by popular demand.
