    I am very sorry I cant help with your plant but I can say a really big welcome to orchid talk the friendliest most helpful forum there is I think. Someone will be along soon I am sure to help you. I did a google images search and couldnt find your plant. I am new to orchids so any advice id give would not stand its own so I will hold off till the more experienced guys come along.

    Welcome JC
    Oncidium Jairak Rainbow is actually a Tolumnia hybrid

    Tolumnias like to have their roots dried out quickly. So it will need a well drained medium or mounted. They need bright light, warm and high humidity. In nature most species are twig epiphytes. Their roots get wet from nightime dew or rain and then dry.

    Try googling Tolumnia culture, or equitant Oncidium culture for further info
