Haha, well maybe you have just created one Steve!
The reason we always ask for members to complete the scientific name is because often the same species will have many different names & there are also sometimes several different species that share the same common name!

Hi Karen,

I made up that common name, LOL. I am new to Project Noah-- what do we do if there are no accepted common names for a species?

best,
Steve

It looks like a Kohleria species, but you would need to check your local flora list to find which species.
