Whistling I would like to upload a photo of Epc. Altrowalker to the database:
I don't know what Epc. stands for; it is not in the RHS list.

Hi Carol,

Epc standas for Epicattleya, although in this case it's now considered a Catyclia:

Orchid (Catyclia Atrowalker)

I'm also not sure if either of those photos should be added, since the plant is not well-lit and it would be difficult to use for identification purposes.

I would like to add the bloom image since there are no other images of this cultivar in the database, if that is acceptable. I included the label image only so you could interpret the handwriting for yourself.

Thanks, Carol.

@Zuzu - what are your thoughts on adding the second image to the database?

I'll weigh in. The 2nd photo isn't going to win any photo contest but it's better than having no photo at all.
