Bad news = Chusquea culeou llaima is flowering Good news = prodigious seed production. More good news = Havahart easy set squirrel traps have worked extremely good. Caught 15 later part of last year and 5 so far this year.

I was in Argentina in 2011 when culeou flowered. It was a staggering sight with plants dying over hundreds of miles. My c. gigantia grove is a favorite of mine. I'll really miss it if it flowers.

The mother plant located in the Seattle area shows no sign of flowering. Checked on it yesterday. Added a photo of my plant to the photo archives. Rgds

Llaima update - although flowering, it just sent up a new shoot. Many attachments to seeds. I have seen this before and as I recall seeds morph into leaves and branches. Is the attachment a stylus? Check new photos submitted.
