    Maybe this will help..pictures are from Orchid Wiz. The first is Young Kong "Orchis", which I believe is what Dave originally posted:

    This is Young Kong 'Sun #16' (which I actually own, if the dang thing will ever bloom):

    Default I know this is an old post but..

    thought I would add to the confusion and ask a couple of questions of you folks with more experience. This is a cat I have with a tag that reads Rlc. Young Kong 'No.#16'. The colours are exact. The grower is not the same as the one listed. I find the naming of different crosses to be very confusing.

    Do some growers put there own little twist on a name and if so for what reason?

    Can there be wide variations in clones of the same plant? I hadn't thought so but this on does seem to be different than the ones shown previously.

    Finally. I hope to have the nerve to enter plants in shows one day. How much does a name tag effect judging decisions?
