#Plantopedia doesn’t like this scientific name, what should I do?
Hey @RJG, I’m attaching a screenshot of an error message I keep getting when trying to add a new plant to Plantopedia.

The scientific name is Philodendron Black Cardinal x Caramel. I’ve also tried submitting the following variations, none of which were accepted:
Philodendron erubescens ‘Black Cardinal’ x ‘Caramel’
Philodendron erubescens Black Cardinal x Caramel

Any suggestions for how I can add this new cultivar? Thanks!

hey Alex!

It's in as Philodendron erubescens 'Black Cardinal x Caramel'

Let me know if there are any others!
Maybe it’s the “x”?
Hey I'll talk w Kiersten and figure this out Monday!
@FreshWidow I could see that, but idk how else to write a hybrid cross since the X is standard scientific naming notation 😩
@tmbryant37 race ya to caramel town!
It's beautiful 😍
