Default Odbrs. Fangtastic Bob Henley 'HOF Octopus'

Just bought this one from Trader Joe's, which is a great place for
orchid bargains if you have one nearby, but I'm having trouble
untangling the name. Can't find it on the RHS site. Can anyone enlighten
me?

Brs gireoudiana 25%
Brs longissima 25%
Brs verrucosa 25%
Odm cariniferum 25%

Odbrs Fangtastic Bob Henley registered by Norman's Orchids in
1999. It is Brs. Rex x Odbrs Kenneth Bivin
Brs. Rex is 1/2 Brs gireodiana x Brs verucosa
Odbrs Kenneth Bivin is Brs longissima x Odm cariniferum
Thus it is exactly 1/4 each - Brassia gireoudiana and Brs
longissima and Brs verrucosa last quarter is Odm cariniferum.

So now tell us what it looks like? OH.. 'HOF Octopus' is not
showing on my Wildcatt as an awarded clone. Does octopus really
describe the flower?

Curious question.....

I've seen "HOF" on grexes of other plants too. Who uses this?

Oh darn. I was hoping it would turn out to stand for Hot Orchid Fantasies.
