Phragmites australis?
    #588016 - 03/24/02 10:25 AM (21 years, 8 months ago)

I was out gathering in a swampy area of my neighborhood and found this reed about 7ft tall,hollow stemmed.Did'nt get a look at the leaves because its too early for their growth here.
(Early spring).Attached is a picture of the rhizome and seed head on a piece of typing paper for size comparision.I was thinking that most of the substance I'm looking for will still be in the rhizomes since the top growth has'nt started yet.Any flaws in this thinking?Did I correctly id this specimen?

Some other grasses can grow 7 ft high. A photo of the leaves (maybe old ones) would be good. The rhyzome is very thick though, so it could belong to a grass that tends to grow higher than 7 ft.  If it would have more than 7ft, then there would be only two possibilities:

Arundo donax and Phragmitides spec.

The easiest way to differentiate them, is that the flower (seed in your picture) of Phragmitides spec.  falls always to one side, i.e. it isn't erect like the one of Arundo donax. Taking a look at the flower in your picture, I would say that it is rather Arundo donax (full and dense, while Phrag. has bigger seed and not so dense).

Still so, both contain Tryptamines in the rhyzome :wink: Chances are good that it's one of both.


p.d. I would just use the rhyzome, everything else is a waste of solvent and/or nerves...

I saw some pictures of the root structure of Arundo donax and they seemed to have more like corms than rhizomes..I don't know tho..But I do know that in my dream the extraction (QT's) did'nt yeild any crystals.I dreamt that it might of been because they were dormant.
