    When I was writing out tags for my seedlings, I had to write "Phrag. Devil Fire (Grande 4N 'Vista' x warscewiczianum)" 33 times! I can now spell it, even if I still can't pronounce it!

    Bruce, I don't believe the movement to rename it popowii has caught on yet. I hope it will never catch on because then what is wallisii would be warscewiczianum, and that would be a darn shame, not to mention a bloody mess. In my book it will always be warscewiczianum, if for no other reason than the fact that this was the accepted name for a century. I don't know Popow personally and don't have anything against him, but personally I believe the undisputed king of phrags would be better served with a name reflecting the history behind its discovery (and that of other orchids).

    Thanks Jason. I just wanted to make sure before printing the name.

    Cheers!
