    RICCIA.

    Is it "Ris-see-ya", or "Rik-kee-ya", or "Rich-ee-ya", and which syllable is accented?

    Just curious ...

    I've always pronounced it RIK-kee-ya, but that doesn't mean much, I may have it wrong as well.

    Katze, very few drugs are pronounced the way they are spelled. LOL

    hahaha it actually got a lot right, i played with it for close to 20 min to get an improper pronunciation. it actually even said phenylketonuria correctly, which impressed me quite a bit.

    wouldnt everything be easier if it was all spelled phonetically!

    This plant comes up in our monthly plant auctions a fair bit, over the last two years I've heard it being pronounced all those ways you mentioned. Rik-kee-ya is how i say it.

    It's always fun to see people trying to pronounce the latin names of plants/fish.
