*Blush* I've been adding new plants in the Tillandsia genera and I hope I'm wrong but I think I may have duplicated a few requests. I also just made a spelling error when entering Tillandsia 'Mudlo'. I'm pretty certain that I typed it as Mudio.

It should be Mudlo
not Mudio

Just found another one that I misspelled Lynette - should be Lynnette.

So sorry for causing extra work for y'all, I'm calling it a night for now ... promise!

Thanks for the heads up Lin. T. Mudlo and Lynnette are all set with 470 plus to go! Are you working through the Bromeliad Society International cultivar registry?

Could I ask why you are not using the copy and paste option to avoid mistyping?

Thanks Evan, I hope I didn't misspell any other names; I was getting a bit Blinking last night so I decided to quit. Yes, I got the cultivar names from the International Bromeliad Society Registry ... and I should have gone in alphabetical order instead of jumping around. *Blush*

Hope I'm doing it correctly.

*Blush* Because I'm old and I wasn't thinking.

Thanks for the reminder Sue, it sure makes it easier. Thumbs up

I just tried it and it works! Some sites disable it but there is still a way around that with keyboard functions. Green Grin!

Sue, it works for me too ... I just was not thinking.

I sure hope y'all will forgive me. I just took a look at my proposals for adding Tillandsia cultivars and found a few duplicates and I fear there are many more!

Sighing! I'm so sorry, I should have probably let someone else enter the cultivars. I hope it's not too much work to delete the doubles ... and I sure hope I didn't make any triple entries!

... I'll quit for now, which is probably best for everyone since I'm more a hindrance than a help. Smiling

Thanks Lin. It's pretty orderly. I notice they have a 2015 registration Air Plant (Tillandsia 'Tillandsia Hydra') which I believe is an invalid name. Shrug!

Why apologize...thanks for putting in all this effort.

LOL, must have been an old blonde who added that one to the registry. Green Grin! I wonder if the cultivar should have been registered as just 'Hydra'? Shrug!

You added it as it's listed and registered by the BSI.
