Pigment producing mycobacteria mnemonic

There are these two mycobacteria which produce pigments- M. gordonae and M. szulgai in the dark. How to remember them?

1. A garden contains flowers which
are colourful. So you can remember M. gordonae that way.

2. Szulgai matches 'Nilgai' which is an Indian local word for the Indian
bluebuck/Indian blue bull. So the  involvement of a color in the name can be correlated with pigment production.

That's all!
