    Randoja & corky,
    Perhaps, but such is the nature of taxonomy, names change as more is learned about the plants in question. To learn a plants name, and not learn that the name is, yet, undecided, in flux, or even that it has been changed. These plants, like us, live in the real world, stuff happens and things change.

    That would be like continuing to call Mohammed Ali, Cassius Clay, after everyone else got the memo. Personally, I opt to work at keeping up with changes, until I'm too old to do so, anymore. And that time, I'm sure, is coming too soon.

    For example: Not so long ago, the taxonomy of Chrysamphora californica was updated. It was moved from the genus, Chrysamphora to the genus, Darlingtonia. Of course, documents printed before the change, are immutable, but the understanding of growers and others concerned with this genus, had to change, in order for future publications to carry the updated name. Of course, some will always resist any change, and I'm sure there are some that continue to reject, even this change, though it has been widely accepted in the CP world.

    These kinds of discussions are, for my mind, essential, especially for someone new to the hobby. The sooner the flexibility of taxonomy is realized, the better they will be able to understand CP, and plants in general.

    Amazing, Av8tor! (Also, a bit aggravating to a less skilled grower such as I...)
    Cheers,
    Paul

    From seed to flowering adult in approx. 3 years!

    Interesting that the flower stalk is fuzzy..., it's obvious which parent that came from ;-)
