Well, I finally got my first homegrown hybrid to bloom.

I transferred this plant into a small pot from the tree it germinated in about a year ago if memory serves. And now that it bloomed. I'm pretty sure it's the result of a cross I made between Epidendrum schumannianum and Epidendrum wallisii with E. wallisi producing the seed.

It's flower is closer in size to the smaller E. schumannianum, though a bit bigger. It looks very similar to E. Costa Rica on Orchid Roots that is the same cross but with the parents switched.

Sadly 3 of the 4 flower buds got chewed up by a caterpillar the day before opening. Luckily I caught it in the act before it got to the final one. Otherwise I might not have known what sort of plant it was for another year.
Though if it takes after E. wallisii it'll bloom throughout the year. E. schumannianum only blooms during a 2 month window (July/August) as far as I can tell.

As I'm not 100% sure of it's parentage, I'd be hesitant to register anything. Just happy to finally have got a proof of concept that ex-vitro germination of hybrids is possible.
Now I'm curious to see if it's growth habit is like. Will it only bloom from the end of a stem like schumannianum or will it get flowers at internodes in the stem like wallisii? I'm kind of hoping it gets the robustness of schumannianum with the floriferousness of wallisii.
