[Aroid-l] Cultivar registration - the wraps are off
It is time to get moving on this. Our
application for has been approved by the International Cultivar Registration
Authority, and now we have to perform.

WHY: I want to see it happen so that

reference site available to all, with descriptions and
WHEN: The time to start is now – RIGHT
WHERE: There is a great, simple
form to apply for registration of a name on Aroid-l in the cultivar
WHAT: Any plant that seems
significantly different and holds the difference when propagated
HOW: The cultivar name, or
epithet, is submitted on the application for registration. It must be in a
non-latinised form, and must sooner or later be published in print form
associated with a description and preferably an image.
The epithet is then established by this
publication. If the application is approved, but the epithet has not
otherwise been established, the publication requirement will be met by a
suitable entry in Aroideana.
Registration will then follow and lists of registered names will
be published in hard-copy from time to time, and will also be displayed on
the website. Simple, right?
WHO: You, of course. This is only
effective if the breeders and propagators support it.
Right now, I need help from volunteers
familiar with a genus who can check the lists already available on Aroid-l,
add any missing names, and give me the place and date of publication of any
names that you can trace.
We are ready to go. Please be part of
