- Identification (5529): Matthias Asmuss (2010-03-24) =Aechmea 'Tropic Torch'
- the name of the plant is written in fcbs.org Aechmea 'Tropic Torch' and not 'tropic Tourch' and I would just copy it from fcbs or change the one in fcbs (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Add Note (5529): Uncle Derek (2010-03-25) - Regrettably with Cultivars once a name has been registered the spelling does not change unlike species. To think the label could also be written 'Tropic Touch'!!! Check Cultivar Register published 1998 for 'Tropic Torch' (Sent: email@example.com)
