That is a cute one! Also I googled the flowers and they are even cuter! It's a pretty unique oncidium.

very unique indeed.! And why I make my stand that small specialized growers have the best stock of what you want. The Mom and Pops who grow very limited editions are always done so well.

I was also tempted by the flowers but I am doubting I will ever see any on mine. I got it as a seedling and it's never done well for me. I am now trying it in rockwool. I'd say it's been amongst my more challenging orchids to keep alive so far but it hasn't died yet at least. Yours looks a lot bigger than mine already. How were the roots when you got it?

the plant came from Diamond Orchids, Peter "Mr T" Lin, and came exactly as you see them,mmmm or not.

The roots are behind a ball of moss attached to cork bark. Its a fresh mount so I am hesitant to take a peek under the hood so to speak.

I will try to get better pics but do check out Mr T's collection. He shops for you in his greenhouse likes hes taking them home for himself

This one has been on my list for awhile. Looks in great shape, so glad to know where it came from.
