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 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.
