Tollumnias

orchidnickAugust 3, 2014

Tollumnias deserve a home too. There are enough around, i thought to start a thread just for them. I'm sure Arthur will have some beauties to share., I have 3 open, 2 in spike and a whole bunch of young plants that should bloom in the spring if they survive my expert care.

The first one out of the gate will be Rrm Spunky x Rrm Misty.

Beautiful! They look so much like oncidiums, any relation to them?

They were once included with the Oncidiums. They have no pseudobulbs and thick channeled leaves. The species come from the Caribbean and maybe (just a maybe) from Florida.
Should be a doddle to grow in Florida.

Arthur, they are a doddle here in Florida! Had to look that one up and I like it. Is your climate the same as Florida? Or have you created habitat for them. Whatever you are doing it obviously is correct. Thanks for sharing. Nice pictures.

It is pretty and pink and it needs a rich godfather to fork out the Ten English Pounds to register the name.

Sadly, the rich godfather cannot rescue the fair maiden because as far as I can ascertain she has no parents.

Anyway, on with the thread that has no hope of reaching 150 posts.

Here is Tolu. Tom Wilson which came in a flask (I think) from Robert Perreira and somehow some plants ended up with a specialist Australian Native Orchid grower who lives in Dungog NSW. He gave me a plant as a gift many years ago.

Sadly, this orchid was bumped off by the myself and the guy who has a thousand of the little beauties in an attempt to divide the plant into two, so it would not be lost.
SOB!

You have hundreds, some guy you refer to has a thousand. How many different names do you guys have or are you talking about endless repetitions of the same. Not that the same will look the same as plants with similar names can look very different.

I'm headed for 60 to 80 different strains but doubt that I'll find 100.

Nick, the endless repetitions of the same applies because there is a lot of variation when you make the cross A x B = C and you get hundreds of little babies to raise from the flasks if the cross is really viable.

Tolu. Golden Sunset is one where you see a many clones..... Tolu. Golden Sunset 'This', Tolu. Golden Sunset 'That' , Tolu Golden Sunset 'Taka' x 'Seka' etc. etc.

Haven't a clue how many Grexs (strains) I have but it is many many less than your 60 to 80.

The little babies are suffering. It is 7C. and raining outside and the heater in the "warm" glass-house is just about to turn on and warm them before sunrise, though i do not think we will see the sun today.

We have winter days here with the same conditions. For us it is extreme, but we have them. I turn the heater on at a higher temperature for the vandas. Does your glass house hold the heat from the warmth of the day?

Glass-Houses are poor at retaining heat. Most "Vandas" might need minimum night temps of 60-70F.
Tolumnia seem to survive if they are dry (and cold) and the day temp lifts but my conditions are less than optimum.

Here are pics showing the variation within one cross which was made by a guy with many of the little beauties.
Tolumnia Alyshia, variations within a grex. Have several others that are different but no pics.

This idea of collecting one of everything goes out the window if you concentrate your collection in various areas

This one is much easier:

Rrm Orchidom Alamed Beth x (Tolum Alameda Jov 'Orchidom' HCC/AOS x Rrm Orchidom Dancer). Why not just call it : 'Sue' , that would work for me. First bloom on a tiny plant.

I just noticed that this is another plant with that name, will have to call them #1 and #2. They are seedlings so are different although with the same color patterns.

Rm Orchidom Alameda Beth x orchidom Dancer #3. It is the third seedling with this name that has bloomed. A picture of a previous bloomer is somewhere above.

Very nice! Alas, I have no pics to post. You comment somewhere above about the quirky names is appropriate.
They do not follow the same pattern you see on other Genera.

I have probably posted pics of this one before. Bred and registered by Moir. One of his weeds.
This clone produced by Jones and Scully. Had it for ages. Easy to grow and vigorous.

So what does an oncidium look like if those are no longer classified as such?

arthurm(Sydney, NSW AUST)

That is the 64 Dollar question, I do not know the answer.

In the great renaming one Genera that most orchid growers knew as Odontoglossum have been changed to Oncidium so it is impossible to quantify a typical Oncidium shape.

Colmanara seems to be now Oncostele and so on.

I should go through all the orchids pictured in the link below and check that the names are current, but I'm putting that little chore on hold, just in case the names all get changed again.

Here is a link that might be useful: Oncidiinae sub-tribe pictures

Another one opened up. RRM Orchidom Happy Choice 'Alameda' HCC/AOS x Tulomnia guttata Orchidom CCM/AOS. Imagine crossing this one with another one with a name just as long and listing both in parenthesis!

RRM Orchidom Happy Choice 'Alameda' HCC/AOS x Tolumnia guttata 'Orchidom' CCM/AOS. Orchidom are probably waiting on a wealthy orchid grower to shell out the ten English Pounds required to register a name.
Love the "Strawberry" markings.
Looked up Tolumnia guttata and it was described in 1994.

SM. I have no idea re. the name of your hybrid.

Would someone like to share in the expenses of mounting an expedition to Arthur's growing area ? We could do some plant collecting :) Needless to say, I can say that I wouldn't mind having almost any of these Tol.
