    Default ID's for the parents of these crosses?

    I'm trying to find the parents to the hybrids I have. I've found a few but could use some help with a couple.
    Feel free to correct me if I am writing them wrong.


    I have a Phal Timothy Christopher. I've seen this as a cross between Phal. Amabilis and Phal. Cassandra. And also a cross between Cassandra and Aphrodite.
    How do I know which is correct?

    Does anyone have a Phal. Green Star 8000 CR? I can't find anything on this other than photos.


    Anyone have a Mokara Salaya Gold?

    (btw all this time i thought Mokara was part of the name while assuming it was a Vanda plant. just saw that Mokara is a cross between Ascocentrum, Vanda and Arachnis. oops )

    Timothy Christopher is Cassandra x aphrodite. Cassandra x amabilis is I-Hsin Timothy Christopher. I can see where there might be some confusion.

    Lower case a for both aphrodite and amabilis... they are species, not hybrids.

    I don't know anything about Phal. Green Star 8000 CR except that it is not a registered hybrid.

    You can access the RHS registry database to look up hybrid parents etc. here... The International Orchid Register / RHS Gardening

    Thanks Patty, I asked Rich. I think it's just one of many hybrids popping up that will remain a mystery. He did tell me it has long lasting flowers so that will make up for it
    Thank you for the correction Kirk.

    Is it perhaps: Phal. K S Green Star (Phal. Chang Maw Evergreen x Phal. Kung's Green Star)??

    And the Mokara is: Mkra. Salaya (Mkra. Sayan x Ascda. Meda Arnold) 'Gold'

    cheers,

    Thanks for the ID on the Mokara Bruce! I looked up that Phal and that is not mine. Pretty though.

    I couldn't resist the green color, and it even had a tag. afterwards I found out that it is not registered in the RHS database. the original source told me it was a "new" hybrid. However, as this place seems like a generic wholesaler it wouldn't surprise me if there was no such official registration. still a nice green flower though.
