How do I register an orchid hybrid cross?
Print off a copy of the Application for Registration of an Orchid Hybrid form. (pdf)
In order to name an orchid hybrid, you need to know the following:
If you are the hybridizer (originator), you can name the orchid.
If you are not the hybridizer (originator) and know who the hybridizer is, you need to get permission from him/her to name the hybrid cross.
If you have made a good faith effort to locate the hybridizer (originator) of the hybrid cross and do not know who it is, you can go ahead and name it...just do not represent yourself as the hybridizer (originator).
There are check boxes for each of these options at the bottom of page 1 of the application.
You will need to specify both a first and second choice of names.
Fill out as much of the information about this hybrid cross as you can. Some instructions are available on page 2 of the application.
A color photograph of the new hybrid cross is required if the cross is between two species parents or the cross results in a new genus name. The note referenced for the color photograph at the bottom of page 1 is "Note 7", but is actually "Note 5" on page 2.
Payment can be made by check for the current amount in US dollars noted in the upper right portion of the application on page 1. You can also pay by credit card and the card will be charged at the current exchange rate.
