This article covers finding a cross in OrchidWiz using the Group tab.  For the purpose of this article, let's assume we are looking for the name of the registered hybrid which is the result of crossing Phal. violacea with Phal. amboinensis:

  1. From the opening screen (Start tab) of OrchidWiz, select group "Phalaenopsis, Doritis" and then down below click the Select button:

  3. Next, start typing the second parent, "amboine"... the programs will scroll down automatically to Phal. amboinensis.  To the right, you will see the resulting cross, Phal. Princess Kaiulani:
