    To the best of my knowledge, there is an oncidium species out there that is more monopodial than sympodial. This may be one of its hybrids?

    I believe i have it, it is a mini oncidium called Rainbow Florida Sunset, it will keep duplicating itself. (little fans) I always called them twinkle oncidiums or Tolumnias.

    Tolumnia, thats it. Twinkles are a hybrid of ornithyrinchium (however you spell it) and therefore have proper little pbulbs, like the one i have at home.

    Back in the day these were called equitants. I have a couple of very old crosses out of Chula Vista, Ca. all that are left out of many that I had gotten about a million years ago.
    They like Catt like growing conditions.....and they really need to dry out between waterings.

    Before labeling you orchid, please post a photo so the members here can verify (if indeed possible) your orchid plants identity.

    cheers,
