    Oddly, I remember seeing some Polystachya at a grower's in Santa Cruz. He also had a Ansellia x Cymbidium cross, which was in bud. I was very annoyed that I didn't get to see it in bloom. I could probably look up the guy, but you'd have to be in the very northernmost part of SoCal to have it be worth your while.

    Oh yeah, I'm about 5 hours from Santa Cruz, unfortunately.
    Intergeneric Cymbidium hybrids sound interesting...I thought I read somewhere, though, that Cymbidiums in general take a long time to mature from seed, more than the 5 year average anyway. Anybody know if this is true? I dunno myself.

    Not sure about Cym maturation rates. I doubt this place has a website; the business was pretty much just a series of greenhouses out back of his home, in a residential neighborhood. I actually don't remember the name of the company – I just figured I'd recognize it if I looked it up in the phone book.

    I think It could be possible but I highly doubt it.
    I saw nothing like that- but I did see that it has been recorded that there was a cross of a Zygopetalum x Oncidium x Lycaste that has bloomed, but the flower bloomed like a Zygopetalum without a trace of the other parents.
    There was also a record in Asia that a Zygopetalum x Oncidium that showed both parents!
    Cypripedium has also been moved up close to the Paphiopedium/Phragmipedium group, there has been around 55-60 crosses, but 50 of the crosses refused to bloom.
    Although there's has been one record of a cross that bloomed but again did not see the Cypripedium parent.
    Examples: Vanda x Doritis = forgot name...
    Phalaenopsis x Vanda = Vandenopsis (I think that how to spell it)
    Phaius x Cymbidium = Phaiocymbidium ( Phaiocymbidium Chardwarense )
    Don't know, but I think these are somewhat related...
    Good luck, I know this is an old post.

    Does anyone know if the Leptotes x Encyclia hybrid went anywhere? There's a grower near me who has Leptotes bicolor x Laelia flava on his website now and it looks like they're making really cool flowers -- small, elegantly curved petals, slightly bronzy yellow with a maroon lip right between the shape of the two species'.
