I have many Maxxies in my collection but this is the only hybrid that I have. This is a first bloom and I am pleased. It is pulla X striata.
The flower is over 3" wide

Ron,

Did you make the cross yourself?
No I bought this from a Hawaiian vendor in 2005. I don't see many Maxillaria hybrids around. I purchased a striata last year. It is a very colorful species!!

Ecuagenera sells them (pretty cheap, too). They have lots and they all bloom out almost exactly the same as Rons.

Ron is right, you don't see many Maxillaria hybrids. Ecuagenera has a bunch in the works, mostly becasue of the popularity of this hybrid. It really captures the good qualities of both parents.

I think there is lots of potential for hybrids in the Maxillaria genus. They are easy to grow and there is a huge variety of flower shapes and colours.
