she or he has never flowered yet, and i think the plant is roughly 7 or 8 years old.

they survive droughts realy well, and jump to life once the rain arrives.

i have seen major in the rbg syd and rbg kew and other botanical gardens of the world.

i think the are the most wonderfull plant to look at, unique in appereance and they are living fossils, from a time before even all flowering plants appeared. a studdy of them might reveal many secrets of evolution, to bann them just because of there chemical make up is ludercris. nobody in the world is using this plant for illicit street drug manufacture, this was a stupid rumour started in the usa, and now it got this plant onto the bad plants list, sooooo sad.

How tall is that bad boy? looks bigger than at RBG Sydney, but then it probably is subject to less grazing.
