    It's not 'Judith Hindle' and it does look very close to 'Dana's Delight'

    I agree with you totally Joseph. People need to be corrected instead of allowed to continue to spread bad names around. Thats what is wrong with our schools TOTALLY!! Instead of requiring the children to peak proper grammar and learning English they create Ebonics to give them something to excel in. HOGWASH. I have to admit I use slang a lot, but I would never want it to be a "language." I know how to speak properly when I need to. So I do not think you did anything wrong by correcting the young gentleman. The only way to learn is by someone correcting you or researching it for yourself, and he obviously did not do the later. The person who chastised you needs to be smacked for even getting onto you about it. The worst thing in the world, to me, is to get a plant that is misspelled or incorrect. I received a Phrag sedenii that was misspelled and I had the hardest time finding out anything about it till I was corrected by someone on the spelling. Keep it up and feel free to correct any misspelling you see in my posts!

    Nepenthes AK there is a spell check proggy that integrates into explorer I use all the time. I'm not a good speller sometimes and have the occasional typo, so it really helps me out. Its called IeSpell and it puts a button on the top tool bar and will check any area on the screen that you filled in for mistakes. It might help out.

    How can you tell the difference? It isn't color, so it must be leaf shape?

    Hmm I always pronounce nepenthes and ne-pen-thes. And drosera as droe-sera. And according to Tamlin Latin is more of a written languange and not a spoken one so it leaves room for a little pronuciation fluxuation. I have never taken latin so I am not sure you you get theez out of thes.
