Onc flexuosum

orchidnickJuly 19, 2013

Cold to warm grower from a large region of South America, grow it outside, very hardy. Oncidiums seem to get little respect but they can be nice. This one is just getting started, when it has 5 to 7 inflorescence with 50 flowers each it is a real golden shower.

The flowers are small but there are many and the yellow is intense. When the sun hits them, they jump at you.

I love it! How beautiful to have it hanging, great idea. What is it growing on?

I envy your weather, it seems perfect.

It's not hanging, it's growing up a 2' long stick. Has nearly reached the top. I plan to add another stick to keep the process going. Actually the stick is hanging.
