  Re: Cultivar registration

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.
