    Default Hi! Is this a grex paph ? Clark Gaviota x Nulight

    Hello:

    Just yesterday I purchased a large robust paph, large 10-12 inch solid, green strap leaves, 5 growths and a rather fat large green and white bud. The tag says "Clark Gaviota x Nulight" and that's it.

    The greenhouse owner is never around and the assistant was no help...after reading the brilliant article on orchid nomenclature I deduced that possibly what I have is a grex? Or am I way off base here?

    I've looked everywhere to find information and what I've come up with is a paph labeled Clarklight (Clark Gaviota x Nulight) and is listed as a complex hybrid.

    I'm merely curious and like to know what I've purchased.

    Cheers and Blessings

    Yes, "Clark Gaviota x Nulight" is the grex (cross). That grex has now been named Clarklight, and it is a complex paph...you are quite right on all counts. Looks like a nice one!

    Thank you Kmac!
    I was hoping I understood the RVO article on nomenclature! I'll post photos as soon as this beastie blooms, I'm really looking forward to it.
