By label they mean a tag with: the bar code, the SKU number, the grower
number, the pot size (diameter in inches and centimeters plus volume of
pot in liters and quarts) and some generic care instructions such as
"water appropriately, place plant in location so that it recieves some
light and  do not expose to freezing temperatures." What makes you think
a plant has to have a correct name on the label other than "deluxe
tropical house plant 10-inch"?

Thanks much!!!   I love the chain store plant policies.  "Every plant
must have a label!!"  not that it actually means anything useful, or
that it is even the right label.  Only that every plant must have a
label.  Now I can put a real label on it.

This plant is commonly known as Homalomena 'Emerald Gem' but I suspect
it is 
a species.
