  • anocan by anocan

    What does the (pro sp.) note after the plant name mean and should I include this anywhere?


  • okopho by okopho

    It means pro specie, and indicates that it was originally named as a species, but is now considered to be a hybrid (hence the X in the name). The opposite term is pro hybrida (abbreviated as pro hybr.).
