I am still trying to get some plant specimens/seeds
of the curare plants which grow in South America
(eg Chondrodendron tormentosum). Can anyone
put me in touch with any contacts in South America
who might be able to help. It grows in Equadore, Guyana,
Brazil etc. Perhaps some folks in botany depts out there
might be able to help.
I run the medical garden here at the hospital, and am
wanting to grow specimens to show folks in the anaesthesia Dept
as no one has ever seen this plant.
Any help would be appreciated.
