2" pots; This has good potential; and a possible problem.  The Star of Sumatra is sumatranum X echinolabium and has a beautiful gold-orange flower with stripes.  The facetum 'Beauty' is purplish with stripes.  The flowers will have good form and potential for good color.  The possible problem is: the facetum has a short inflorescense and this might affect the seedlings (probably will).  This results in flowers among the leaves which can be a problem.  If the flowers all come out at the edge of the pot, it will look spectacular.  Just as soon as I think a cross won't live up to my expectations, it blooms better than I thought, so I still am growing some for myself.
