Wait A Minute....

OK I need to give you guys some CRAP about this contest!

Picture #4 is not a neofinetia falcata. Any exsisting yellow neofinetia is actually an ascofinetia because ascocentrum is used in the backgrount to create a neofinetia look with a yellow flower. Therefore, all contestants should receive a $50 gift certificate. Call me a sore loser if you will :sob:

Yeah, I hate to say it Jason, but the only person who even mentioned that #4 could have ascoscentrum in the background was Robert Bedard (not you or Robert Jan, you both named it Neo. Falcata). No one would have gotten that answer correct. Every other person who got that question "right" answered it as Neofinitia Falcata. I think there were only 2 or 3 people who didn't get that one.

But, if you're willing to pony up $50 gift certificates for everyone.... :)
