I'm impressed with your cultural lessons, Jeff. Especially the fact that
your Cabomba regenerates better from pieces with terminal buds; this makes
sense, because these buds should contain apical meristems, the concentrated
areas of permanently embryonic cells that can differentiate into any cells
and tissues that a plant needs. I look forward to the new AC, even if you've
learned more since...
