    Can anyone help, with the information I had, how I could use the International Orchid Register? Never used it before and I have tried several different ways. Thanks

    Need some help, Does anyone know how to use the International Orchid Register, when you have the name of the parents? I don't get any answer.

    Have you tried search using either 'Parentage Search' or 'Grex Search' using the info given by Michael Saar re your orchid? When using the IOR you have to be very precise or you won't be able to get an answer.

    Sorry, Carol - I tried but no success. I think Michael has explained he got it from Orchid Wiz. I don't have Orchid Wiz and even if I have the money to pay for it I don't think they have a Mac version.

    Hi Carol, I will help you out with it, it is very easy. 1) Go to the register The International Orchid Register / RHS Gardening
    2) Click on parentage search
    3) Now it will ask for the name of the parents, for the seed parent type bactia in the grex and for the pollen parent type nodosa and then click on search, you will get a results page which will show possible hybrids for the names you typed in.

    Then click on the name and you can see the details
    The International Orchid Register / RHS Gardening
    When using the RHS register you have to keep one thing in mind that it does not recognize cultivar names or named awarded plants, so it knows only Cattlianthe Bactia but not any of its clones like grape wax etc. The second thing you have to keep in mind is that you have to be precise in terms of the data you provide, make a spelling mistake and it will not give any results, try searching with old genera names (name changes in CAttleya alliance) and it will give you a lot of difficulty (but interestingly once done right it does give you the synonyms from older day LOL).
    So my rule is to keep it simple and give it as less info as I can, for hybrids I usually leave out the genera names, just give the grex names and then screen the search results for the plant I am interested in. You will surprised with all the available info. Hope this helps you.

    The one other confounding thing is that it will only recognize the parents in the order that they were originally registered; bactia x nodosa is recognized whereas nodosa x Bactia is not. Which is why I use OrchidWiz.
