Is there a way to add hybrids to your plant list? I'm trying to add my Aloe ramosissima X dichotoma but it won't let me.

This is a fuzzy subject here on Garden.org.

I think the shortest answer is: if it does not appear in the COL you will not be allowed to list it. However, given that there are many named hybrids listed under for example Echinopsis hybrid, which at last check were not listed in the COL, it would seem that there might be a way to do it. However, we recently had this discussion with several moderators regarding Aloe x spinosissima, and as far as I am aware that plant which is a hybrid that is known to the trade and list in plenty of books on Aloes as a described hybrid, is not listed as such.

It indeed is not. If you want to find the threads on this discussion type in Aloe spinosissima in the search garden.org search box, not the specific search for plant box, on the database pages, because that search will not find it...

To me there is a certain amount of inconsistency at play here, regarding how hybrids and cultivars are treated, some are apparently allowed in, while others are not. Seems that strict adherence to the COL was the rule then many of these hybrids and cultivars should not be in the database...
