Hello Jim, Do you have miasma or Mias Ma?
Perhaps some of us are challenged in general. Perhaps 
some of us are frightened of long names and perhaps some
of us (no name shall be mentioned)have no clue; for
it is all we can do to spell Oxalis. Ah, O.X.A.L.I.S. is that
one or two L's? Is it a plant,flower or weed? Um, I was just
wondering which is better, newploids, oldploids or that
thing on T.V. called the noid?  The honest truth, I wouldn't 
know if you misspelled or miss typed. I don't catch on until
some one points out a "miss" because I didn't know there
was a double flowered Tiger Lilly.  Thank you and everyone
for your contributions. In case nobody noticed,I was poking fun
at myself for not noticing what was probably obvious to everyone
