When Requesting an ID

Solar_Storm(24 CA)October 28, 2013

I'm certainly not the moderator here and I like group groups, but I suggest that if you want an ID, that you post photos of one plant at a time. And as much info about it as possible, like where you got it and measurements for mature specimens. It would make commenting so much easier. Thxs.

Well said. Also Norma gave more request for ID'ing a plant. And even all that there's only a guess no guarantee.
I do understand most people getting their plants from an unknown source needs a clue as to what they bought. When It's just in the hobby and not breeders or nursery men, what's the harm. Yea, still some but ......
Hard answer.

Sorry but did I miss something Stush: don't get what this means, could you please clarify?

Correction & Clarifications. In my original post I meant to say "group photos" not "group groups". By "source" we mean what store or business or friend. And from past experience on forums, I'm sure Norma's advice was that IDing a plant from a photo is risky business. Only a few species and cultivars are obvious, like 'Bantel's Sensation'. I agree with her.
