Hi Gang, First, I claim the dunce prize for sending a message to the group with all sorts of extra material copied from an earlier PBS digest. Mea culpa and please forgive me. I've got to learn to stop "shooting from the hip" when it comes to the send button. Second, I found an interesting photo of a geophyte-like Sansevieria plant. Really, it is a caudex-like growth but it appears somewhat like the tuber of a tuberous Begonia. The plant is attractive, and no way a geophyte, but well worth seeing. The images are part of an Ebay auction that ends tomorrow (Nov. 22, 2006).
