Does it smell like coconut? If so it's Sharry Baby. Good growing.

Uh, nick? Coconut is Max. tenuifolia. Oncidium Sharry Baby is chocolate...

Well done! I'm nursing a tragic Sharry baby myself.

Every so often here, orchid growers bench their plant as Sherry Baby; maybe they think that Sharry is a mistake.
Wonder is D.O'Flaherty is still alive to appreciate how popular the orchid he or she registered has become?

Chocolate = Maxillaria tenuifolia. Sharry Baby = sugar almonds. Would make a nice cake....
