    Robert Gibson reviewed the peltata complex, several new species emerged. There are some major taxonomic differences between the species. This is not a trivial matter, by trading mislabeled plants, you are trading misinformation. All growers should strive to keep labels as up to date as possible.

    If you trade these as peltata, the misinformation that magically arose when you recieved them, gets passed on to other growers. I have a large number of NOID plants in my collection, that I will never trade, because they were mislabeled somewhere along the way.

    This makes me sad. Especially since I and lots of other people entered this give away who could of given these a good home.

    And I agree, both that A: you shouldn't of entered to begin with if you weren't knowledgeable about this species and confident of your growing skills.. And B: you shouldn't be TRADING something that was gifted to you. Its bad form. If you dont want them, do your OWN give away.

    I agree with Brie. you should give them away, not offer for trade.
