Considering you like flatties, I'm not too surprised. Something

OGB is a designation used to denote the pedigree. O for oncocylous
(aril), G for regelia (aril), and B for other bearded - often a TB but
can also be another bearded not derived from the bearded aril species
of regelia and onco. OGB written without a (+) or (-) indicates the
plant is a balanced amphidiploid and thus is more likely to be a
fertile parent because it contains two chromosomes from the aril side
and two chromosomes from the non-aril bearded side. An OGB- or OGB+
should be an iris that contains an unbalanced set of chromosomes which
greatly reduces the chance of the plant having much or any fertility.
Does that help?
