How long should I expect for my oncidiums to mature and bloom? Male

Ok, I realize this is a late post (from Feb) after a bump, but I felt I had something to share.
Ok, I bought several oncidiums of 2-3 years and or young mericlones from a vendor in Jan 2019, which I believe to have been a bit smaller than the OP photos from Feb. I have the first flowering of one of my Wilsonaras going on now. I'm certain I'm not far behind on the Odontonia and either this growth or the next will probably see a spike on it. The dendrobiums of the same vintage were tinier and they grow a bit slower. I am a bit unsure if next year will see them spiking or it might be the year after. However, everything is growing vigorouly and has gone from a 1 1/2 or 2 inch to a 4 and both the referenced Oncidium types probably should become a six inch pot come spring. Roots growing everywhere..which is a good problem to have I guess ;0
However, I could absolute agree with Roberta that the next PB could initiate a spike if the culture is good.
It'd be nice to see an update by the original poster as well.
