Dear Neil: Very nice, I looked at the last pic first was delighted to
see the filaments...
and then I found that you had already talked of it in your write up..
I could not find any essay or even a snippet about the filaments, and
what other plants may have such basal filaments...
I know, Gloriosa lily has apex of the leaf becoming a filament and may
even act as an anchoring tendril..
but could not find another example of basal filaments ...
my question: do you know of any ?
or any other members, please.
and thanks to all who can tell me baout these stipules/filaments...
