Now the secret will be to watch your watering. Oncids like to be moist but not wet. Their roots get rot very easily so water then allow to get almost dry before watering again. They also don't like to be repotted very often. They love to be rootbound. But because of this they stay wet underneath all those roots. So even though the top is dry don't be fooled. I lift the pot after it is watered well and then a few days later I lift it again. You will quickly learn when the plant needs water. In fact let it dry completely for a week, lift it, and then water it well. Now lift it again and you will instantly notice how heavy it is. These don't like to be over fed either. It burns the leaf tips quickly. But they are rewarding bloomers. Oh, and the reason the one pbulb was growing at an angle different than the others is because that is the oldest pbulb and the last time it was repotted the grower potted the newer growth vertically. It also means that the plant you got was a division and not a clone or grown from a seed.
