    1) Seedling number is it the number written on the side of the tag.

    2) under GREX there are three question

    GENUS

    GREX EPITHET (1ST CHOICE)

    GREX EPITHET (2ND CHOICE)

    3) under PARENT

    EPITHET specific or grex epithet
    EPITHET varietal or cultivar

    2) under GREX there are three question

    GENUS - Oncidium or whatever the name of the Genus if it is a conglomeration of different genus like if you mix Odontoglossum and Oncidium then your Genus is Odontocidium

    GREX EPITHET (1ST CHOICE) - the name you want to call your hybrid

    GREX EPITHET (2ND CHOICE) - second choice of a name for your hybrid just in case the first one is already used or is not acceptable.

    Make sure that in choosing the name (grex) of your cross, that you check the RHS website to see if the name has been already used. I think you might loose your money if both names are not acceptable.

    3) under PARENT - say one of the parents is the species Oncidium sphacelatum 'Bluemoon'

    EPITHET specific or grex epithet - you should have two names here, which is the parents of the cross. eg Oncidium sphacelatum

    EPITHET varietal or cultivar - if the parents have a particular cultivar. eg 'Bluemoon'
    Hope that helps.


    cheers,
    tim
