Zhengzhou university welcomes students back with rooftop gardens


With students gone because of the coronavirus pandemic, a university in Zhengzhou had some time to do some gardening.
Overhead footage shows how Sias University planted rows upon rows of plants on the roofs of student dormitories during the Covid-19 hiatus.
The plants are sedum lineare. While not the most beautiful of plants, they are the top choice across China for greening up flat-roofed buildings because of their hardy ability to tolerate cold and drought and their little need for soil or tender love and care.
University officials say that not only do the plants look cool on the rooftops but they will also help to cool off the dorms by absorbing sunlight and thus help to reduce energy costs.
