  Re: [Aroid-l] Off topic: Lycopodium in arrangements question

Hi Reggie,

Thanks for the information, and the link to your lycopodium page. I had
stumbled across it before, actually, while doing some web research on these
fascinating plants. Lovely. I've also exchanged some e-mail with Chad re
equisetums - it's a small botanical world.

I've found several images on web pages of various companies which sell foliage
for the cut-flower market which appear to be the one in question. I'll include
the URLs below. I can also snap a few digital pictures, if these aren't
sufficient, and find somewhere to put them.

Re cuttings, the one web resource I found on the topic seemed to imply that use
of rooting hormones had essentially no effect on the species they tested - do
you recommend for or against, and if for, any particular concentration or
ingrediant? (Or media, for that matter?)

The URLs:

http://www.tayama.com/html/products/fol_lyco.html
http://www.geckofarms.com/Events/Foliage.htm
http://www.flowernz.co.nz/catalogue/foliage/other/lycopodium.html

The last says "a native of New Zealand", but I'm including it because, if it's
not the one sitting in my greenhouse, it certainly looks like it.

Steve
