Wilsonara (abbreviated Wils.) Firecat 'Jamaica Sunset' has pumpkin or burnt orange colored flowers with a yellow lip. The pod parent, Wils. Catatante (syn. Oncostele Catatante), is a very popular, floriferous, and easy to grow Oncidium intergeneric hybrid. Wils. Catatante is Onc. Sphacetante x Colmanara Wildcat. Colmanara Wildcat is one of the most successful Oncidium intergeneric hybrids in modern history with the species Onc. leucochilum (which is hardy down to 40°F), Onc. fuscatum, Odm. uroskinneri, and Milt. warscewiczii in the background. Colmanara Wildcat is an easy to grow reliable bloomer that puts on a fantastic show with branching blooms. Wils. Firecat 'Jamaica Sunset' has all the wonderful features from Wils. Catatante, but on a more compact growing plant and lower flower spike. The ability to put multiple branching spikes on each pseudobulb is a fantastic trait.  Wils. Firecat 'Jamaica Sunset' will soon become a classic. Note, this hybrid is also known as Oncostele Firecat 'Jamaica Sunset' since Wils. Catatante is also known as Oncostele Catatante due to reclassification of the species involved in its cross. Highly recommended for beginners.
