- Addit.Note: Uncle Derek (2011-07-16) - A nurseryman's name that nobody has defined so that it could be registered. The name does not mean that all T. fasciculata from Honduras will look like this. It would have been better to call it from the locality where it was found or given a fancy name and registered AND then let the taxonomists decide where it fitted (Sent: email@example.com)
- Addit.Note: Benetay (2011-07-16) - We have plenty of these here in Singapore. It grows to a huge size, flower and offset. However, i am quite amazed at the name when it reaches our shore. Hope it get registered someday. (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
