Cane is in bloom at UNI!
The cane plant that Dr. Rachor brought back from California has shot up, literally. If you look at the first post about this little plant, it was a humble sprout, and now it is over 12 feet tall, and in full bloom. The picture that you see is of the bloom - and it is an excellent example for this type of a grass, a species that UNI has never had in the greenhouse before, according greenhouse specialist Stephanie. This plant can not be used to make a reed. It will have to be chopped down, and the new growth will then be reed worthy.
