      Hi, Winny!
      "4. The canna rhizome is rich in starch, and it has many uses in agriculture. All of the plant has commercial value, rhizomes for starch (consumption by humans and livestock), stems and foliage for animal fodder, young shoots as a vegetable and young seeds as an addition to tortillas."
      Also search this website for 'edible canna.'

      Hi Ann,
      thank you for the info about syzygium polyantha. I still believe that sticking a pencil size branch will actually works because that is how the plant is propaganda mostly in Indonesia. Also, I actually stick a pencil size laural bay in my front yard back in September last year (no root) and its currently have rooted and grown quite a bit.
      By the way, which part of canna is edible? All I know is the alphania and gingers roots are edible but canna roots are poisonous (so I heard). Beth /Lorax once tell me that the leaves of canna are used in wrapping food, just like alphania/ginger leaves, bamboo and banana leaves. Are the leaves edible? I thought they are only use for fragrance.

      Hi Ann,
      sorry for the late reply. My computer shut down on me and I have been without it for about a week and a half. I have to get on using my office computer and I currently borrowed a laptop from my brother so I can log on.
      Yes, I know about ca rare fruit growers. Years ago, a friend of mine invite me to the meeting and I learn a lot. I have not been to their meeting in years.May be I will go to one of their meetings in the near future.May be Roger Meyer can give me some advise on my paw2 tree.
      By the way, how have you been?
