    Surprise! I am not selling anything.

    I am accumulating plants so in a few years's time I shall select the very best ones for pollination, flasking, and propagation.

    Thereafter, I may be able to sell seedlings or flasks of Philippine species orchids to a niche market.

    That is with the intent of conservation, in the long run.

    They are oriented that way.

    It seems they thrived for thousands of years that way, and perhaps they shall remain that way, long after us.

    Nelson, beautiful show of Aerides. Does it have a clonal or variety name ????
    Also, given the number of odorata grown, is it possible to put a variety or clonal name to an odorata by photo. Reason, I bought an odorata a short time ago and the seller said it was imported from the Philippines. I'm wondering if its named or just one of the many. Its not flowering at the moment but the spikes are coming.

    Roy could you elaborate more on this, how does one register a clonal name? I have a nice and unusual form of Rhynchostylis retusa. I contacted the RHS and the AOS and they said they can only register plants that have been bred (not collected) and if they were hybrids. May be you could start a new post describing this process.

    Halloamey, for a plant to registered with the RHS, it has to be a man-made hybrid as per Paph Paeony x Paph Redstart = P. Orchilla for example. The name Orchilla being the new registered name. The variety or clonal name most famous is Chilton. This name can't be registered but is generally known and accepted as a name exclusively used by Ratcliffes in England. Anyone could use this name but there would be no point as it would be mistaken as a Ratcliffe plant & not their plant. You can get a NEW species noted or recognised by the RHS, particularly when used in breeding provided all the taxonomic and botanical criteria and publication of the new species has been correctly done.
    To your Rhyn retusa, all you can do is have the evidence that this plant flowers the same way each time and give it your chosen name & thats it. If you wish to make this plant stand out so its known widely and hopefully prevent someone copying it, photograph it and publish the pic in forums or where ever you can so that it makes it difficult, not impossible, for people to sell fake plants using your plants name. All they could sell would be Rhy retusa, not for example, Rhy retusa v. Halloamey form.

    Default Thank you for the suggestion, Roy.

    I will think about it carefully.

    Have you, by chance, registered any plants with the RHS?
