Default Psychopsis x Brassia ??

Hi All,

I have a question for those of you out there that do orchid breeding or
may know something about it.

I recently crossed a Brassia onto a Psychopsis and the cross took. I
have a nice, fat capsule maturing. From research that I've done I know
that there are only 3 registered crosses of this type. They were all
registered back in the mid 60's I believe.

So, I am wondering what those crosses looked like and why they were
never replicated. Were the flowers really ugly or were they simply
difficult to repilicate? And what do you think may be the outcome of
this odd cross that I have here?

If anyone knows more of the history of this line of breeding and if they
have photos or know where I can find photos of the flowers, I'd really
appreciate the info.

Thanks All,

Jen

Hello,

I will soon sow a pod of Psychopsis x brassia. I was wondering if you managed to bloom your cross
