    Thanks, Kirk. I did a bit of research myself and couldn't find any crosses either. One thing that may make such a cross worthwhile is I have a hunch that the floriferousness of Wildcat may very well come through. It may be something to look into.

    Wildcat also gets branched spikes, while most Brassia tend to be very linear. If you got good orientation of Brassia type flowers on a branched spike it could be quite spectacular.

    Ok... Not really a close relative of Wildcat, but if you want the intense red on a more Brassia-influenced flower, search for an image of Kreigerara (or Brascidostele) Raspberry Stars 'Red Hot Moma'. That should satisfy you.

    I might at some point make a cross if I get parents that I think will do well.
