    Default Sharry Baby 'Tricolor'

    I too love the chocolate fragrance of Sharry Baby and make room in my collection for this hybrid. The tricolor clone does not develop a gangly spike. The flowers are more condensed. This is the second spike for me this year.



    This spike pic is from a previous blooming

    I love this one too. We have two different varieties and both put out such beautiful, long showy spikes. Go on Connie - get one. There is always room for 'one' more.

    Cheers,

    It does take up quite a bit of room...I have mine in an 8" clay pot. I divided it maybe 2 years ago. I have had this plant for about 8 years now I think

    Wow!
    Talk about clusters. I do like the presentation of that spike - Shorter and denser compared to 'Sweet Fragrance'.

    It's beautiful. I must be the only person in the universe who can not abide the fragrance of a Sharry Baby. (though I love chocolate)

    Nope, my wife and I can barely perceive the Sharry Baby fragrance as well. We can only smell a very slight hint of dried coco powder - and thats if we put our noses right on the flower.
    Although, we are both chocolate lovers as well. Perhaps it has numbed our noses to chocolate lol.

    Ron, I just lost a Sharry Baby that was growing in straight sphagnum. I seem to have more of a challenge growing some of the thin leaved orchids as well as they should be grown. What type of pot and mix do you use on your oncidiums, brassias?
    Tnx, Kathy

    kathy, I have only one Brassia and that I have in a large pot of Hyroton growing semihydro. The Onc Sharry Baby I have in a clay pot with medium bark mix. Most of my other oncs are growing mounted on a treefern plaque. I should have taken down my Onc Sang Chan to photograph...It just finished blooming with 2 beautiful spikes
