Here are some before and after shots using vinegar rather than Roundup to Kill Weeds

I will be doing my own research on some samples of Arundo Donax, The Giant Reed.

My latest discover came at the 2nd Festival of Traditional Medicine of the Americas. I brought a few Arundo Donax roots, and pieces. Arundo was one of my honored plants used on the altar in the stage area. I was regarded as an 'important person" by one teacher who happened to honor the Mayans. It turns out that the Mayans hold Arundo Donax as a Sacred Plant. It is called Carrizo in Spanish.

Googling: Carrizo use among the Mayans Brings up This:

Day of the Dead or El Dia de los Muertos in Oaxaca
Maria Diaz

Today, far from an occasion for curious onlookers, traditions associated with the Day of the Dead reflect the Mexican belief in the duality of life and death. While they mourn and miss their dead loved ones, they also believe that death is just an extension of life. It’s part of a natural progression, not an end. The dead continue to exist and return annually to visit their loved ones. Many of the customs, such as home altars and cemetery vigils, are to help them find their way and to welcome them home.

Just as there are differences in beliefs among the many ethnic groups which make up Oaxaca, so too are there differences in the details of the altars and the celebrations from one family to another. Typically, each family builds and decorates an altar in its home. An altar usually begins with a table on which are placed boxes to represent the tombs and all is covered with a white tablecloth or sheet. Long stalks of sugarcane or carrizo are tied to the front legs of the table and formed into a triumphal arc above the altar. Flowers, candles, images of the saints, and photos or other rembrances of the beloved dead abound, along with favorite foods, drink and other items.
