ah! see they call it red coral. i find that in my hands some cacti turn red in bright spring sunshine. may be this plant has the ability to do the same. very interesting. thank you for sharing the label
You should also give name of the cultivar along with species name as in the plate, otherwise it creates confusion as original species may look totally different.
its rhipsalis, etc etc not pseudorhipsalis i thnk per the label
yes i had seen the plant list page, trying to label my pictures from an RHS show a couple of years ago. i thought the, and do now, its irrational.
my personal bias is when something positive exists, why go with negative or doubtful. the case here: rhipsalis versus pseudorhyipsalis.
its like saying. human versus pseudohuman are the same!!!! take your pick
i like to be logical regardless of what the plant list says
Actually, I do not have in depth kowledge about the plan world since I am not a botanist. I just follow net and instruction from experts like you people so some mistkes will be there. I am still learning and trying to learn.
There are lot of things which I am still confused.
…, that’s ok. most of us are not botanist either
Gargji, Dinesh, Satish Phadke, Shrikant, Neil Soares et al to name a few. thats the beauty of this group. i am not a botanist either
i just am compulsive and don’t believe everything an expert committee says. decisions by a committee can never be trusted. consensus is good but decisions, no!!
