How does one register a new cross? I'm in the process of creating a hybrid.
You need to flower it first of all. Then check it's never been done. Make sure you're the original hybridizer. Then go to rhs and get it registered.
It is standard (but not mandatory) to send an image of the first seedling to bloom. At a minumum you have to describe the flower of the first one to bloom. You can do the registration on line.
If I'm not mistaken, the photo is only necessary if it's a primary hybrid.
I will defiantly be the first hybridizer. I did a lot of research and now where did I find the cross I'm doing. I am undereducated in this subject so for give for this question:What is a primary Hybrid? I am in the process of crossing two Epidendrum Species orchids.
Cross between 2 different species.
If you are searching on Google, you won't necessarily find a cross that has been registered. The easiest way is to have someone with OrchidWiz look it up for you. You can also use the RHS register. though I find it a bit cumbersome if you are looking for a specific set of parents.
That bluenanta site is kinda handy too.
Jai, were you here to read the threads that Carlos used to make about an epiphyte in every tree?
I think so it was a while ago. I will look for his post to refresh my memory.
I just came across the form for registration and looked up the photo requirements. Here is the rule:
A photograph (print, slide or digital image) is a good way to support any application, but is required for primary crosses (those
between species) and new hybrid genera.
