    Default Registration of a cattleya

    Yeah! I get to register my first orchid. I've had this plant for 4 or more years. I've been searching for it's registered name. I was told by an AOS judge to just look for the oirginator of the hybrid then register it. I did manage to find the originator and was given permission to register the plant. Too cool! Now what to name it?

    Oh, I've often wondered how one can get a non-registered cross named! So, one needs to find the hybridiser. I'm curious as to how you tracked him/her/them down? I won't suggest a name for you--that should be something you get to have the fun of doing--but I will be most interested in what name you do choose, Jeff.

    Cheers,
    Rob
