    Hello, Lorax: About the tree sprout, I have embedded 2 pieces of copper wire into the sprout; I expect it will die by the end of 3 months.

    Hello, sir. Thank you for all the wonderful information you share about many different plants and trees. I have a sprout in my flower bed right next to the metal garden edging. We moved in 2 yr ago, and it was already there. The root must be at least an inch across now. It is about 12-18 inches from the root of a privit hedge bush. What can I put directly on the sprout to kill it and not do damage to the bush? We have an azalea on the other side of the bush. We have sprouts of the same tree in the back yard. While young, the roots are yellow. Thank you.

    Lorax, I am a member of another forum that deals in Xeric plants only. Lots of "plant royalty"(plant breeders, nursery owners" of the Xeric plant world). I do more lurking than talking because I am a little intimidated by manny of their degrees and credentials, I have learned a lot by lurking....Anyway, let me cut to the chase. Some one is requesting Puya raymundi seeds. They would BUY them. If you want to do some collecting, I get the feeling that some of these guys got money. Lots of traveling. Their albums are amazing. The entry is under their "Classifieds"

    Have a good time perusing. I think I am on page 18 of the albums, going backwards.

    That's a Lubber alright. Squoosh him, squoosh him quick! For the love of your garden. Those things will even eat Aloe arborescens plants!

    Beth...I do try killing these...I did find they will destroy a garden/yard...Thanks bunches!

    Biography
    I'm a formerly Canadian conservationist living in Ecuador; Lorax is my job description (I do actually speak for trees, most of them endangered or threatened.) I'm a plant nut, and try to grow everything I'm going to eat when at all possible. I also refuse to believe what anybody says about hardiness zones, and as such I'm often found trying to grow things that perhaps shouldn't be attempted where I'm living. For example, I'm currently trying to grow bananas at 3,000 meters of altitude, in a desert. I'm also trying Hops in the tropics; I get the feeling that if they'll ever sprout for me, I'll have a hard time controlling them. In Canada, I used to grow palm trees outdoors in USDA Zone 3a.

    I edit, typset, and design an international magazine on Bananas (www.bananasquarterly.ec - insert shameless self-promotion here) and am a member of the International Aroid Society. I'm also a certified orchid freak, although my orchidarium is a bit sparse at the moment (I'm still trying to figure out what will survive at this altitude; the answer seems to be not a whole heck of a lot.)
