  [Aroid-l] Supergenic naming.

When I worked at Bob Wilson's Fantastic Gardens in Miami in the late
50s-early 60s, Graff used to come in to photograph new stuff. When he had
the pictures, he would ask Bob for names, and he would always oblige even
though no one in Florida had any idea exactly what the new stuff coming in

Since then I have been very skeptical of any name that is authenticated with
a reference to "Exotica" since we all know that Graff did essentially no
editing beyond lining his pictures up on the page.

I don't know whose fertile brain Homalomena miamensis came from - but
nurseries have to call their plants something, don't they!
