    Hehee...what's that phrase? A rose under any other name would still smell as sweet... just not as sweet as a Cattleya?

    I don't blame you for not reclassifying. I may be slightly OCD, as Amey suggested... but it appears I'm not alone. I'm glad there are others on here who know what's going on with the orchid classifying system or I'd be completely lost. And the internet isn't much help, considering it lists plants under every name they've ever had!

    But I also have aspirations of someday owning my own greenhouse, breeding orchids and selling them, so it would be important for me to have the classifications right if I ever want to make a legitimate business out of this addiction!

    Thank you ROY for the "Orchidgenus" website. I already have , and use the RHS register.
    With all that I have said, I know that eventually I shall have to conform if I wish to compete in international Shows. I still hope that day does not come too soon.!!
    Thank you again for keeping us informed.

    For all its worth, I try to keep track of the changes ( fat chance) because in the Catt' family, there have been the same names used for different breeding lines. eg. one may be called Blc. Name Change & another cross Potinara Name Change.
    With the re-classifications the first would be Rlc. Name Change & the second C. Name Change. Without the correct labeling you may buy 2 of the same OR you may be looking for the entirely wrong plant when trying to purchase a specific plant, particularly if its not in flower. Thats a problem on its own.

    Great image taking. I can see your professional photographic skills.
    Don't forget to make money with your images as well.
    Maybe you can teach us.
