    I ordered this plant when I saw that it is a hybrid using Ada aurantiaca as a parent - such a vibrant colour, even if the flowers don't open very well. Ada and Brassia are very close, and since then, Ada has been collapsed into Brassia as they say - hence the correct name here ( although my plants still defiantly names it as an Ada ). It is curious that whilst Kew is keen on lumping together as many genera as they can - more than 20 of them have now disappeared into Oncidium, so I hear - on the other side of the Atlantic, Missouri and Carl Luer are doing the opposite thing, and carving Masdevallia up into about 20 different genera ....

    Whatever, a nice "different" hybrid for my collection.

    Wow. Lovely color on this one. Did not know that there is a genus by name Ada. Happy I learnt a new genus today
