*Blush* I was recently told NOT to add the 'quote' marks when entering parentage information and I realized just now that I probably did it today on a few Neoregelia entries. Those entries can be declined and I will re-enter the info later. So sorry.

You've also added the genus to the cultivar names in the parentage field. The genus is added only when a species is the parent. For parents that are cultivars, just enter the cultivar name without the single quotes or the genus.

Oh my ... my age must be showing again because I do think that sometime recently, either you or Sue told me about adding/not adding the genus to parentage entry. I probably should take a "vacation" from data entry and give y'all a break. I have quite a few submissions pending, possibly with too many errors. *Blush*

You're not alone, Lin. I find it very hard to add things to the database correctly. I'm amazed at all the work our plant admins do!

I too, am amazed at the amount of work our administrators do for the NGA plant database and and I'm so grateful for their hard work in making it as accurate as possible. Thumbs up

I just have to D'Oh! myself every time I create additional work for them.
