Re: VMS -- Botany Thought(s)

Hi all, 

  While I'm NOT a botanist - I've noticed the drift of late to the
_locations_ of the VMS flora here on this list.  Thought: would it be
to insurmountable a task for one of you experts to create a Zen
Diagram of sorts (general over - lays (geographically)) to look for
inter-lapping points of where they are found on a world map ?? 
  Nothing fancy, but if Africa is a Southern circle - THAT May also be
a clue as to DATE, and Origin (geographical) of the VMS.

Best to you & Yours

 Subject: VMS -- Botany (f12v) Spiral Ginger
 There seem to be quite a few plants of the Zingiberaceae family that
 somewhat resemble the f12v botanical drawing in the VMS. At this point
 my favorite pick is Spiral Ginger (Costus afer) from Africa.
