    Just wondering if I could give a name to my hybrid N. aristolochoides x thorelli x Miranda or if I must wait to see what it looks like when it's grown up and decribe it fully?

    Any horticultural "law" experts hanging around this spooky eve (Trent, I'm thinkin of you pal PM me)! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    In what stage is the plant currently in? Just seeds..? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    I think you can name it whenever you want but if the plant ends up an ugly hybrid no one wants the plant anyway so I would first wait and see what it looks like. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Well good question. As far as the ICPS you can't give it a registered cultivar name yet.

    Some growers use the hybrid grex nomenclature used for orchid registration, such as N. Predator (truncata x hamata). Technically this is not recognized either so that if someone wanted to register a cultivar with the ICPS that was unique they could still give it any name they wanted.

    At least this is the way I understand it.

    Thanks Tony and Trent (via PM) for helping clarify how/when I can do an official name.

    So from what I understand from Trent that hybrid/grex/cultivar names can NOT be in the Latin? I researched such a nice powerful name...! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Yeah you can't use a latinized name. They don't want any potential for confusion.

    What name where you thinking of naming it?
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    You should grow your plants for a while to be sure the distinguishing quality is consistent. You also need to be sure of your reproductive methods to insure that the character is passed on. It is better to grow a large number of the plants to get an idea of the variation plant to plant. Tony is correct, Latinizations are out. They are reserved for publication at a higher rank.

    On the other hand, you get to be creative with the name which should come easy for you! I suggest you pick something that will result in a two week Listserve flame war, it always fun irritating pseudoscientific snobs and will serve to call attention to your cultivar.
