Rhyncholaeliocattleya Caprice

Rhyncholaeliocattleya Caprice is the cross Cattleya Califlora x Rhyncholaeliocattleya Pink Debutante registered in 1985 by Sea God Nursery.

I was re-potting this plant and noticed that my notes did not include the registration information. I know that this plant is not readily available any more and can be considered, if not rare, at least special. I went to the RHS so I would get it right.

I found Laeliocattleya Caprice, the name on the tag, but it looked all wrong. It was some other plant altogether, a recently registered primary hybrid.

I have learned through hard experience to search the database by grex only and to leave the genus blank. I went back to the results list and looked at the Rlc Caprice listing. Happily it matched what I knew about the plant.
