    Lightbulb the names... THE NAMES!

    every once in a while its popped into my head to search for a database such as this but i always forgot about it before i got to my computer. today i finally did it and came up with this.

    its a searchable database containing many botanical epithets (latinized names, such as truncata, albomarginata, rubra, etc) and their definitions. pretty neat!

    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.
