Re: Growing Ailanthus Indoors?

thank you for the input, guys. I think I might try growing it in a pot outdoors. There's no way it can sucker, then. Also, I'll cut off any seed pods it produces.

Growing Ailanthus Indoors?

Hey all, A strange mood has swept over me, and all of the sudden I have a keen interest in all things Ailanthus. I would never plant one in my yard, but would one survive indoors? Or does it need the cycle of the seasons to survive? Should it thrive, I would keep it trimmed like a bonsai. --Ryan

Re: More bad news...

Is there any way to get samples of some of the species? Like, so at least a few will make it? I know my buddy has some boabab trees...

Anyways, it's no surprise this happened. It's in our genes, and, as Dawkins said, "We dance to our genes."

Re: Weminuch Spruce

Engelmann reminds me of my favorite species--the Sitkas. The two even grow within twenty miles of each other, in the Olympics; I don't think they ever grow beside each other, though.

Schopenhauer and Nature

Recently I muddled through twenty-some pages of Arthur Schopenhauer's "The World as Will and Representation"--I would have liked to have read the whole tome, but philosophical treatises have never given me great pleasure.
