I have read that when the parent pod are niveum. They are much easier to bloom than a clone with a rothschildianum as a pod parent.

tbadams - that was true of some of the old roth crosses. Those same roth crosses made today with different roth parents have been blooming on much younger plants. No secret tricks to blooming them.

Is there a way to tell the pod parent.

Is there protocol for naming?
