The person who they sell it will probably recognize it as the cultivar's name. And pass it along as such. What they should really be doing is selling it as something along the lines as for example: S. alata 'Night' x Self, or S. alata 'Night' x S. alata dark clone, S. alata 'Night' x Sibling etc. They need to make it clear in the name that it is not a cultivar, comments are easily forgotten. This is how fake stuff starts circulating, please DO NOT be a part of it, it becomes a real headache for people who ends ups with these.
it's mainly because it's just so costly to import cultivars into australia... it's a little misleading, but i think it's the best we could get.

For one reason or another it doesn't seem like he has made it to these boards yet, he is on the others ones tho.
