    If I'm understanding your question Gin, all the plants in the flask came from the same parents, so they'd share the grex name as in Phal Mini Mark. While any individual seedling could be given a cultivar name say 'Sunsploosh', only plants genetically identical to that plant could be called 'Sunsploosh'. The cultivar name guarantees genetic equivalence. So unless you dividied or cloned 'Sunsploosh', the other guys in the flask would get different cultivar names if they got any at all.

    Did that answer your question?

Other growers may disagree, but keep in mind that 'Sunsplash' is a single individual from a pod of close to a million seeds, thousands of which were probably grown into plants and sold (often for $10 at a supermarket). 'Sunsplash' was a particular plant whose qualities were superior to all these other thousands, even though all of their flowers were probably very similar, and might appear identical in photos. Even though its flowers look remarkably similar, you can't arbitrarily assign an ID. Only plants known to be genetically identical to 'Sunsplash' should be labeled as such. Please don't be offended, I'm not trying to be mean. But please be responsible in naming and IDs, for the sake of future growers =)
    I see your point! I probably was a bit to quick on that ID - Didn't think of it that way, I'll delete the handwritten 'Sunsplash' from the tag

    Thank you for clarifying - and no hard feeings
