    But like I said, it's extreme variability, much like complex hybrids.

    There are different rules for naturally occurring hybrids VS man-made hybrids, and it goes something like this:
    The naturally occurring hybrid inermis X talangensis (cited recently in a discussion of this very topic) is called N. pyriformis. If, in the plant's natural habitat, the hybrid pyriformis gets crossed back to either of its parents (inermis or talangensis), the resulting hybrid is still called N. pyriformis, even though the proportion of each species is no longer 50/50. This is quite contrary to the nomenclature practices applied to man-made hybrids.

    If a combination like this was performed by a hybridizer, such a back-crossing would be regarded as a completely new grex and given a new and unique name. The trick here (if there is one) is that the naming depends entirely on which came first, the naturally occurring hybrid, or the man-made one; the naturally occurring hybrid always takes precedent. So, if a hybridizer repeats the parentage of a known hybrid originating in the wild, he cannot name it as he pleases, it must follow the example of the naturally occurring hybrid.

    That said, I am unclear whether or not one can take a select clone and assign it cultivar status, and if so, how.

    I believe all of the statement above is correct and true, but if someone "in the know" finds fault in my statement, feel free to correct it.

    Just saw this post. I'm glade it arrived safe and sound, it looks like it has colored up nicely!

    Wicked. Do you know what clone it is?
    Guess I'll contribute with a pic of my clone C

    I do not know the clone but it seems similar to yours. Great plant by the way.
