    From what I recollect, one can register an orchid with unknown parentage as a grex, it cannot be judged in the class judging, but it can be judged for specimen plant. Also it can used for hybridizing after registering.

    If a plant has a registered name via the RHS, it will have a parentage with it these days, unlike the past. If the parents aren't known then registration would be rejected, or should be. Stranger things have happened. You only have to look at the plant name changes !!!!!!!!!

    It should be so as to curb the increasing number of NOIDS but it won't be rejected Roy, it will just be considered as a new grex, a beginning of a new line. I see this beneficial from two points of view, 1) In case you have an exceptional NOID plant with really unique characteristics say a true Blue Cattleya,then it would an injustice to not being able to use it in future breeding of Blue cattleyas or being appreciated for what it is. The second consideration is that this may prevent malpractices and incorrect nomenclature, currently the RHS does not need any proof of the parentage you want to register. If you can submit a photo of the parents well and good but it is not essential. Consider someone crosses two NOIDS but registers them under the wrong names and with the wrong photos, we are still screwed Only a DNA test might help in confirming the true identity of the parents. And with all these complex hybrids, I am not sure if even a DNA test can resolve the issue.

    Thanks Roy for your input. It is mystifying how Orchid Nurseries can do this.

    Its quite easy rosie, translation, incorrect writing & misprinting can account for some wrong names on plants from some nurseries. Incorrect labels are a big problem within the average grower as well, huge actually. Getting them to correct it is a bigger problem so the problem just spreads.
    One HUGE problem I've found, particularly in the Vanda/Ascocenda area from some Asian nurseries is the same orchid being sold under multiple names, this is spreading into the Cattleya family as well. Who knows what's to come. There is a lot of questionable dealings.
