So my neighbor gave me a division and just told me the blooms are orange. The tag name is a doozy: (Blc. Orange Nuggett x C. Nalo Surprise) x Ctna. Why Not 'Nalo'
Does is have a different name? Preferably a shorter one? Pics? My neighbor has a bunch of orchids, but no clue as to how to care for them, and she won't listen to culture advice. She usually gives them to me when she gets bored of waiting for the blooms
Thanks for your help! Hopefully, I'll be able to post some bloom pics within the next year
I found Cattleya Nalo surprise on RHS site, it is a very recent addition registered just this May, here is a link
The International Orchid Register / RHS Gardening
But still you cannot shorten the name, since the hybrid between orange nugget and nalo surprise is not yet registered, so its a long call for a hybrid of an unregistered hybrid. May be you can get it registered once the parent is registered. I don't know how such cases are solved where you have the progeny of a known parent which is unregistered. Can you get both registered?? Any experts??
Wow, you guys are awesome! Thank you so much, I really appreciate it!
Gotta love neighbors who share!
