Thank you Gurucharanji.... that is what I was getting at when I asked
Hari ji repeatedly a few days ago...
because it seemed he was copy pasting ... but he said he was doing it
from his own files... but now a days there are plagiarism catching
programs made for catching school and college kids plagiarizing essays
from the net for homework submission... its very easy to catch the
MAY BE we should have a moderator meeting on these and make
announcement and write it up in the rules for Indiatreepix....

> >> *Description*
> >> Chenille plant is an erect, sparsely branched shrub that can get 6-12 ft
> >> (1.8-3.7 m) high with a spread of 3-6 ft (0.9-1.8 m). Potted plants are kept
> >> considerably smaller. The evergreen leaves are oval, 4-9 in (10-23 cm) long,
> >> 3-4 in (7.6-10 cm) wide, and pointed on the tips. Chenille plant is
> >> dioecious, meaning that the staminate (male) and pistillate (female) flowers
> >> are on separate plants. The pistillate flowers are purple, bright red or
> >> crimson, and clustered in velvety catkins, 8-20 in (20-51 cm) long and an
> >> inch in diameter. They are dense and fluffy, like a cat's tail, and they
> >> appear intermittently throughout the whole year as long as conditions are
> >> favorable. The cultivar, 'Alba' has creamy-white catkins.
> >> *Location*
> >> Chenille plant is native to New Guinea, the Malay Archipelago and other
> >> islands in the East Indies.
> >> *Culture*
> >> *Light:* Full sun to partial shade. Best flowering is on plants in full
> >> sun.
> >> *Moisture:* Chenille plant needs a humid environment and frequent
> >> watering during the summer growing season.
> >> *Hardiness:* USDA Zones 10B - 12. Chenille plant does not tolerate frost.

> >> [image: chenille plant shrub] Brilliant color, unique form, and coarse
> >> texture make chenille plant a standout in the tropical landscape. *Usage*
> >> Chenille plant can be grown in a container on the patio or porch, and
> >> brought indoors during cold weather. It looks great in a large hanging
> >> basket with its fluffy crimson tassels hanging over the sides. It also can
> >> be kept as a houseplant in a bright location, but it will require frequent
> >> and heavy pruning, as well as regular misting in an air conditioned room. A
> >> common practice is to take cuttings every year and have new young and
> >> vigorous plants constantly coming on.
> >> In frost free climates, grow this striking ornamental as a free standing
> >> specimen shrub or give it a prominent position in a mixed border or hedge.
> >> *Features*
> >> The brightly colored pendulous tassels of chenille plant are extremely
> >> showy, and a specimen in full bloom is a spectacular sight.
