Oncidiums

O)ncidium floridanum, a large warm grower from Florida and the Bahamas. Has anyone seen it in the wild? Jane, you need to go on an Easter Oncidium hunt.

Very pretty! This oncidium can get quite large.My neighbor gave me a piece of his years ago and it's now a huge basket.Every year I give pieces of it to friends or pot up here and there in my yard.This year it had lots of bracts loaded with flowers that's on their way out.A lovely orchid indeed.

That's something to look forward to. I just put it into a larger container maybitI should go all out and put it into a 16" wire basket so ti can grow and ramble at will.

I also have a huge Onc sphacellatum that sits on a mini tree, also has the potential of getting huge. Had 9 spikes but the rats did a number on it. 2 completely gone, 3 chopped , only 4 remaining unscathed. It's just getting started.

Wilsonaria Pacific Panache 'Fireside Fever'. This is a small, mounted division that's blooming. Big Momma is sitting there sulking. I have noticed that when I have duplicate plants with one blooming and the other not, quite commonly it's the mounted one that is doing it.

ODCM Catante 'Pacific sun spots' a colorful hybrid. I had it for years and it has never bloomed until this spring it exploded with 9 spikes. One of them is open now. I think Jane has of these same history.

What a show! Like a giant bouquet.

Can you believe mine still hasn't bloomed? I moved it to keep the cat from laying on it, but nothing yet. The spikes just keep getting longer and longer. I just hope the cat doesn't break the spikes.

Just beautiful, Nick!

Now they are all open. I have several Oncidiums but none equal the sphacellatum.

Warm although they should be OK in the backyard. I know of people who grow them without heat in the winter.

Onc harrisonianum is now doing it's thing. Its a dainty small plant, flowers are less that 1/2" in size. Jay Phal outdoes himself as he describes the temperature preferences for this one. This is a 'cool to warm growing, lithophytic or epiphytic, cold to cool growing species is found in Rio de Janiero, Espiritu Santo, Sao Paulo and Minas Gerais, Brazil'. Oh well I grow it warm and it appears happy.

The ODCM Cathante is now about 1/2 open. It's all over the place really a chore to stake it correctly. With our 100F backyard temp I moved it back in the cold GH .

Just beautiful. I grew some of your smaller plants in NY. All gone now.

My monster is finally starting to flower. Spikes are very long and I had to stake a few because 'crazy cat' decided they were fun to play with. I'll try to get a shot tomorrow. Maybe you can give me your knowledge of the variety.

I have one hybrid of Onc sphacellatum. Onc sphacellatum x Oda Pacific. Not as robust and overpowering a plant as sphacellatum but long, branched sprays with many flowers. The flowers are a bit larger because of the Oda influence.

Onc Tiger Cub 'Tiger Crow', I grow it outside and it seems to be happy. Many that look like that have Odm in them and prefer to be cool. This one has survived a brutal summer outside and decided to bloom.

Hi. Its interesting to read you. You have beautyfull Oncidiums. Here is my Sharry Baby in 2014 I have two pots of Sharry Baby. One is doing well, it's in bud now. The other had too much water last summer .. It's sick. I have some succès too.

Hi to Jane. Hi to all.

Sorry for my not so good English. I improve myself.
