Dear Alberto,

I agree, the recent key which I noted in outline is less than perfect for
plants in cultivation.  However, I doubt it will lead to endless confusion.
It is  a start for discussion of Ledebouria species and perhaps constructing
a key for species in cultivation.  It gives us a list of the species which
Venter considered valid for South Africa and a suggestion of their habit.
Not mentioned are the  species outside South Africa.
