Hi Guys

The following is a short note we printed in our local Study Group News Letter as we were seeing much the same problem we see on Forums of people using abbreviations or lack of, that's fine for yourself personally but not everybody is up on NON standard abbs. Do consider a few extra taps on the key board so everybody understands.

Another post recently had used only C. for various plants they were talking about, only that person knew what that stood for, was it Canistropsis, Canistrum, Catopsis, Connellia, Cryptanthus or maybe it was one of the bigenerics Huh

Abbreviations on labels
  
When writing labels for yourself for at home I feel it is fine to do this eg:                                                         Aechmea  =  Ae.  or  Neoregelia  =  Neo.  or  Tillandsia  =  Till.                                                                                            However I prefer not to see single letter abbreviations such as ’A’, ’N’  as the                                              

’ A’  could be for Acanthostachys, Aechmea, Androlepis, Ananas etc.

                                   or the

’N’  could be for Navia, Neoregelia, Nidularium or Neomea etc.
                        
This can be confusing for novice growers, with experience we do get to know the difference between some of our plants by sight and get to understand the abbreviations. However when putting plants out for sale it is best to write the name in full. Think of a member of the general public wishing to find more information regarding their newly acquired N. ‘Bossa Nova’, how do you find that in an “index” but if the label had Neoregelia ‘Bossa Nova’ on it, the label information can be found a lot easier.

I do have a pic. [ that's short for picture ]
of this sp. [ species ] but it is just a spike .
It will be a few weeks before it is an infl. [ infloresence ] isn't it ?.
And it is the  Werauhia section .
Looking fwd to seeing this . Wink

Actually I was going to suggest the same thing.  Even though it's in the Werauhia section, depending on how you access the thread, that may not be immediately obvious.  Even a W before the species name would help a lot.

Ya heypinkbroms is referring to a post I had up. I removed the post after I realised my mistake to avoid confusion. But yes if I didn't realise it was in  in the Werauhia.

Michael,

I'd love to see a photo of your Wer. viridiflora in flower.

FCBS only has a line drawing.

Cheers,

Rick
