Oncidium turned yellow and shriveled up

Sorry about your loss solstice.

You can go studying and memorizing all the plant pests and diseases an orchid can pick up which some members on here like doing as a hobby but at the end of the day the orchid has died and what exactly killed it is tbh less relevant in my opinion so I don't memorize orchid diseases, I just try to avoid them with good growing practices, so I will say it was attacked by the immature baby killing fungus - the name is irrelevant although some will disagree but essentially that plant was not just "relatively young" as you describe it- it was underdeveloped, missing all leaves and far too small to survive, thus more susceptible to getting sick than a healthy plant. The roots look suspicious, I will say that estación seca has given the best advice, bulbs rot when the roots don't get enough air in wet conditions.

Bottom line is: Whoever sold that to you had just removed some underdeveloped unproductive shoots on a plant which might have survived but generally growers throw grows like these into the bin instead of trying to sell them.
