|you need the maori name for all te plants as i have to research on native plants and i need the maori names for all of them and also the common name and the plant name so i hope you can put these on all the plant web sites.
i hope you will take this into consideration thank you DJ
Sounds like you're a better source on Maori names than I am. Here's a deal: you send me (by e-mail) the Maori names of NZ plants on my website, I'll work them into the pages. OK?

|I reallly have to know the Biotic and Abiotic factors of the Chionochloa rubra, for a biology assesment, it would be great, if this informantion would be added onto the webpage. It will certaintly help me alot.
If I knew what that means, I just might - but seriously, this is a gardening website, not a botanical one (although I pretend, sometimes). Good luck finding the required information.

|I bought this plant from Annies annuals . It states that it will sirvive in Zone 8 . I live in New Haven Ct , zone 6 maybe 7 . How is you plant doing . Do you plant it in the ground .
To be honest, I didn't see it this past season, so it must have perished. It did make it through at least one, and probably two winters, planted in the ground. But it never thrived.
- Seed from '03 trade. Baggy 70F (29d)-70F with light (10%G, 9-12d)
- Same seed as above. Baggy 70F with light (no G, 36d)
Exposure to light appears to be helpful. Short-viable?
