Brassidium Shooting Star x Bapistonia Echinacea

 I purchased this small Brassidium hybrid from Gold Country Orchids at the San Jose Orchid Exposition in the first week of June.  It is an interesting cross with the Bapistonia part reducing the size of the orchid so that it looks like a minature oncidium type.

The flowers from the two elements of the cross are shown below:

Bapistonia Echinacea

I have this sitting in the first row on the south-facing window where it gets lots of light and a cool breeze at night.  It should be an intermediate to warm grower with medium light.
