Billy, 6 1/2 oz. root is a monster be sure and let us see a pic. of that one. I'd like to have a boat load of those!!! One 4 footer would work too lol.I remember one root I found back in the early 80's looked like a small carrot but I didn't weigh it,wish I would have now.I bet that root was 8 inches if not longer.It was growing on a creek bank in the bottoms.Just love to find those big ole monster roots,puts a smile on my face every time!

Here's that post...
I went out and got a loan, and cleared a spot on my wall.

[\"I will post a 3 to 4 foot very old plant on here in a few days when I dig it this week\".]

Sounds to me like they were probably describing the top. Which would still make for a very impressive root.
