Re: VMS -- Botany Thought(s)
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.
