They must be a brand from a nonEnglish speaking country. Nothing else could explain such a gaff.

What's Phyto?

Oerdin

You mean like a phytoplankton? It's just a prefix that means having to do with light. I believe it has the same origin as photo as in photograph or photosynthesis.

I could be wrong though.

phyto- or phyt-
pref.

Plant: phytogenesis.


[New Latin, from Greek phuto-, from phuton, plant. See -phyte.]

:rolleyes: ..... ;)

some of you could then be hugely amused that in italy trains are not delayed, they're "in ritardo"
or that a delayed effect (say with gradual release meds/pills) its a "retarded effect"
or that condoms designed to make the male last longer have a "retarding action"...

that product is definitely french tho.

To retard something means to slow it down or hold it back. The word retarded just means that the person is slowed down, or held back in some way. So, no, it's not surprising.

The things you learn when you have a mentally retarded brother...
