- It was commercially grown and marketed as Florida Arrowroot
- It doesn't fix nitrogen on it's own, but it does form a symbiotic relationship/hosts Nitrogen Fixing Bacteria
- It contains a few varieties of toxins
- The roots have only the cyasin, which is soluble in water
- Native Americans would soak and/or heavily rinse it to Leach out the cyasin

- Granted a gene knockout may work?
