Why are you calling it Bongso var. Robusta? Didn't you buy this as bongso? Also I don't think bongso var. robusta is even a correct name, but it should be.

Steve,
You are probably right. The "Robusta" went with it when a certain form called was N. carunculata var Robusta. Then they changed carunculata to a form of N. bongso. I like the Robusta tag, as you get an idea of which plant you are getting.
As you said, I don't know if you can say bongso var Robusta

Cheers,

Joe
