    Funny, ive never had that problem-then again, do keep my orchids damp. I have heard about that though....

    You could even just mix a tablespoon with a cup of bark to lighten the mix a bit.

    Default Update on "My new Oncidium. two different names!" It's blooming now!

    Hi guys! My new Oncidium is in bloom now, but only the buds at the end of the spike. I wonder if the rest of them will do it later.
    Well, I was hoping it was the other one, but what I got was Onc. heaven scent 'sweet pea' and not the Sharry baby var. aureum.
    Here's the picture of what I got:

    Onc. heaven scent 'sweet pea'... It's not bad, but I haven't noticed any fragrance yet.

    That top one does look like Sharry Baby actually, and if it smells like you say it does, then i say, why is it labeled otherwise lol? My mum thought i had bought some new chocolate or something and was hunting for it in my bedroom for half an hour.....she discovered it was the Sharry baby i brought home lol

    Onc. Heaven scent = Onc. Ruffles x Onc. Sharry Baby so it can look like SB.

    Hmmm!
    Yes, looks a lot like sharry baby, but the pics that I've seen of it, has a white lip with a dark red-ish line in the middle and the other ones have plain white lip.

    I also own the one in this next picture and the name on its tag says "Onc. sweet sixteen 'elegant' "
    Kind of confusing for me!
