    Nice Brassidium type, but there's really no contribution from the Baptistonia echinata that I can see. How big is the plant?

    I just did a little browsing of OrchidWiz, and Baptistonia (now Gomesa) echinata only seems to intensify colors when bred with other onciidinae, which is a surprise to me.

    Kirk this hybrid is busting out of a 3" pot and has 7 psuedobulbs. Purchased it not in bloom last December at an orchid show. I have a large Brassidium Shooting Star that is gorgeous in bloom with several long spikes so thought to take a chance with this cross. Am fond of Brassia species/intergenerics. Was hoping the Baptistonia might contribute to perhaps an increased flower count on a spike but see no contribution to shape/form of flower. Still spidery, however an immature plant.

    Thanks Ray, that seems to reflect the contribution to this cross. Color on this first bloom spike is more yellow with darker markings than my Brassidium Shooting Star clone.
