    C. Bactia 'Grape Wax' is now Cattlianthe Bactia 'Grape Wax', and your hybrid is Bct. (Brassocatanthe) Memoria Stu Hamilton.

    No reference book needed to look up names or parents of registered hybrids. Just look here: The International Orchid Register

    PaphMadMan, could you give me a lesson on that, what would I put where on the search engine, I assume a search is what I would be doing. Thanks for any help.
