    Latin is a code system language used in education to help us identify things by their names. If a person who really uses latin to be able to grasp the bigger picture of botany or medicine or whatever, then it may sound or seem snobby but in fact that person may just be communicating information to someone else who understands the lingo. I know there are snobs, and intellectual snobs are rampant, but using latin in education is actually very important and helps us to be able to know there's just some things we can or cannot do with a plant simply by knowing it's latin name even if we've never heard of it before.?

    One situation where I think the scientific names are helpful is dealing with weeds. Hogweed can be so many different plants! I think every region of the country has their own collection of what's called Hogweed. And the Cress weeds all get called a bunch of names that overlap, like upland cress, winter cress, pepper cress, pepper grass, bitter cress, land cress, shepard's purse…. I love hearing all the common names for a plant; it helps me think of it like a person that has a lot of nicknames.

    Heya Jared
    What I have been asking myself lately is this. Some plants seems to need more red-ish light once they start fruiting/form flowers & seed, while the leafy green grows best with blue-ish light. Also, the red light has a longer wave-length (that's why sunrise- and set are mostly orange/red, as the light must travel thru more atmosphere, and the longer the wavelength, the closer it is to straight, thus less length traveled) so, apart from length of day, or temperature, the light color might have influence too on plants behaviour ? Just a thought :o)
    Cheers !?
