Moreover, the rhizome
(but not the isolated essential oil) has been used in India for thousands of years without reports of cancer which suggests that using the whole herb may be safe, though more research is needed (Chevallier 1996).
Cannas, native to Asia and parts of the tropical Americas, are tender perennials that grow from thick branching rhizomes
that are underground (usually) stems containing nodes and roots.
However, study of the rhizome
anatomy did not reveal clear differences with other members of the genus (Browne, 1925).
as a subterranean stem is absolutely different from roots and radicles.
Plants of this species are erect perennial herbs, growing to a height of 10 to 60 cm with the stem represented as a flowering spike as well as a rhizome
While he is aware of the large gap between these two phenomenon, Kirksey seems hopeful that the Papuan rhizome
may penetrate the world's most powerful market: the US market through the trade connection between Sempra and BR
For treatment of high blood sugar levels and pain, respectively, juice obtained from macerated rhizomes
is orally and topically administered.
Digging out bindweed on a regular basis will reduce the problem but it won't kill it, as the rhizomes
are deep and break into fragments, each of which produces a new plant.
cultivation is a labor-intensive process involving multiple machines and costly manual selection and grading.
It is possible to dig out the rhizomes
of couch grass, but use a fork, loosening the soil as you go, to pull out long, intact lengths of rhizome
clump was opportunistically selected by biologists trying to sample multiple sites to capture minor variations in habitat conditions (e.
is first washed and then dried with the skin remaining on.
