    According to D'Amato, a Cultivar becomes legitimate if they are published in a book not necessarily in ICPS. And since he published his Cultivars in his book don't they become ligitimate Cultivar? Jack

    Maybe some people need to do some more research on there own. So far I haven't lost a plant to the Savage Garden. I stuck with the super easy plants. Then I went to other sources like this site and other books to back up info. If a plant was really that rare, expensive, and meant a lot to me I would do more research. The book introduces you to the plants and shows you some variety. I assumed there would be some errors and I bought only plants that he said were the best for beginners. I don't really care if some of the cultivars are wrong. The book started me growing CPs and that is what really matters. I have so many more resources now that I don't even have to use the book.
    In other words its your own fault if you kill a plant.

    I must disagree with that. Plants die under good conditions due to natural causes, fungi, heavy pest infestations, spontaneously just decide their time has come, etc.

    -Many of the Sarr cultivars Pete has in the book are invalid or unregistered (S. oreo 'Don Schnell' and S. purp 'Red Ruffles' are a couple I remember off hand.)[/QUOTE]
    You'll find 'Don Schnell' published in the 1993 CPN. So, it is actually valid. Describing a plant with a name in a publication or book, effectively establishes it as a cultivar.

    I know that some errors were fixed in the second printing - including the U. "reinformis" one.

    Regarding the importance of duplication natural habitat, I am not entirely convinces that this is as important.

    If I remember my first year biology correctly, an organism's niche is dependent on a combination of the conditions it can grow under, as well as competetion from other organisms in the habitat.

    For example: CPs have a range of moisture, nutrient level, temperature. However, when faced with competition in the environment, other species may be more competitive under some part of this range, relagating most CPs to nutrient poor, very wet habitats.

    Perhaps some plants would be happier under different conditions than they encounter in the environment? I'm not saying that we shouldn't pay attention to natural growing conditions, just that we shouldn't necessarily consider them to be the "one ture path".
