I had not been to the bamboo (American Bamboo Society) website for
several months because of a tiff (atomic war) but i see that some
plants have been taken from their previous genus, placed in a new,
sometimes entirely NEWLY named Genus, and have now reverted to the
original genus as of say, 18 months ago. I am not going into the
previous history of the name prior to 18 months ago because over
decades THAT was an ugly business. What I mean is HOW IS A GIRL TO
KEEP UP WITH THIS STUPH? Between the Sansevieria Wars, the Gasteria
Wars, the Palm Wars, the Cycad Wars, the FERN WARS! THE FERN WARS,
how can this be? and the Datura/Brugsmansia wars, I am almost out of
brain tissue.
