  Cultivar registration

Bonaventure,

Unfortunately the 1995 version of the International Code of Nomenclature for
Cultivated Plants (ICNCP) is not available online. You can purchase the book,
but it is about $50 US. The two booksellers that I have found with this
available are Koeltz or Balough, each with web sites for ordering online.
This is not something you can pick up at the local Barnes and Noble nor is it
available from Amazon. I think they are making some changes to the Code so
there may be a new version out before too long.

Yes Donna, thank you, you placed these ideas down very clearly and with more
elucidations. I'm glad you can see what perspective I've had of the
registration

I can see that there is a big misunderstanding about what a cultivar
registrar is supposed to do. First of all, parentage is not required
information, although there will be space for this information (if known) on
the registration form. We may have some dynomite clone that needs to be
registered and not know a thing about its lineage. The plant will still be
registered even if nothing is known about how it arose. There may be
misidentification of one or both parents, so why bother with recording
lineages unless every plant that contributed to the cultivar has been
properly identified. This will never happen, folks! There is no verification
of orchid hybrids simply because there is no way to identify hybrids, and it
is the same with aroids. I am sure to get plants submitted for registration
that have incorrectly identified parents. I will just have to register what I
get.

To answer Jason's message about cultivars with missing lineage information:
The ICNCP does not require parentage information for this very reason. There
are many plants long in cultivation that have arisen spontaneously or they
exist with no records about their history. Aroids are no exception. There
will be attempts to collect any known information about parentage at the time
of registration, but the whole point of registration is to link the name to a
specific clone, make sure the name complies with naming standards, and to
ensure that there are no legal confusions with registered trademarks or
patented names. A Register of cultivar names will be produced and printed.
This will make it much easier to register future cultivars, since we want to
be sure we are not using the same name for two different cultivars.

A small thank you to the people who went through the effort of
slipstreaming cultivar
registration for aroids. I've been waiting for this a long, long time.
