    That is what I thought since I saw it that way on the RHS site. It is funny (well not really) but some people that appear to be quite LARGE in the orchic community spell it the first way. EVEN HERE!!!

    OK, give me 20 all you orchid name misspellers!!!

    LOL! I think he meant 20 push-ups, not 20 plants from your collections, but I can't be sure...

    It's really hard to know if a tag is accuarte without the registration data. I look up names on my OrchidWiz database, which has the accurate registration info. I correct other's posts when they don't have the name quite right, but only trying to help.

    Yeah, 20 plants from eveyone would work too!!! It would be a jungle here but I could "live" with that.

    I have been going through my grow list on the RHS site, prepping it for posting. That is how I found the spelling difference.

    I try to help too, but most people take it the wrong way.

    I'm always afraid of that. So I try and make it sound informative, rather than like I'm correcting them.

    Easy kiddo - you and McJulie can be as, ahem, fussy about names as you want - just don't expect everyone else to be so concerned... Relax...


    What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
    By any other name would smell as sweet;
