Dear Sid:

I am perfectly happy with naming the species after Ivan. He is an old friend and supporter. I am trying to help them in their business because I believe it is good for science, good for horticulture, conservation and the Ecuadorian economy. From my standpoint
I need locality information which is usually lacking and by helping them I am freeing up those important details.

I hope that you can manage to get this plant and that you have somewhere to grow it successfully to get it to flower. Please document its growth so that we
have all the details for a description. Perhaps I will be able to get them to divulge a bit more specific details so that we can be more precise about the type locality. What city in Texas do you live in?

All the best,
