As I understand the proper way to write cultivar names, these are both acceptable:

P. warscewiczii 'Flavum'
P. warscewiczii cv Flavum

If you use "cv" then don't use any quotes (always single quotes BTW) and vice versa. I think it is more common, by convention, to use single quotes and omit the cv. The cultivar name is always capitalized but never the specific epithet.

I am lucky enough to have a specimen of Philodendron warscewiczii  cv.’Flavum’ which does not die off, but actually thrives on neglect.  See attachment.


But will someone among the taxonomists please tell me if my nomenclature is correct in this case?  (Sorry 1 Should have put “Philodendron warscewiczii cv. ‘Flavum’.
