When I came home from five days away to discover this sight my first thought was “this is a job for Tai Shan!” If the zoo really is having trouble getting food for them, here’s a great solution: I can’t be the only person fighting this satanic plant. Bring a panda around for a day!
Alas, if they can’t convince them to get an ultrasound it seems unlikely they’re in the market for a road trip. Too bad. Those stalks were under 1 foot high when we left town Thursday morning. The tallest was over 5 feet when we returned on Tuesday afternoon. These growth spurts come after a long period of dormancy. I wonder what specifically set them off.
Any of the rest of you fighting this menace?
