Epi. stamfordianum "Belize" x Epi. stamfordianum "#1"

First question, what does the "#1" mean in the name?

Last year when this Epi needed repotting I thought why not try some new coir that I bought. Course it needs about every other day watering, but I have been mostly mindful of it's care. It has rewarded me with a ton of new roots, so I am expecting this beauty to flower some time. I have forgotten what season it blooms, easy enough to research.

I am just so pleased with all the roots

I am surprised no one answered your question about the name.

Epi. stamfordianum "Belize" x Epi. stamfordianum "#1"

The part in " " is a clonal name. It is always used with awarded plants when the plant is a division or a clone. Seed crossing do not carry the awarded clonal name.

There is no indication of awards on these two names. They represent a clonal name given to them by the grower. Especially "#1" it is the growers reference to the plant he used to create the hybrid.

The scientific name for all orchids is only the Genus and Species. Here if is

Epi. stamfordianum for each of the parents and also for the cross. Seed crossing can vary greatly. If the plant flowers different from a normal
Epi. stamfordianum and is something special, then the grower may clone it and give it another clonal name. If the plant is ever awarded, then the clonal name will reference the award.

Maybe it is a good thing no one else answered. You did a beautiful job of it, Jerry.
Those roots do look fantastic! I hope you are posting pictures soon, too!
