    I can't tell from the picture, but I think maybe you are actually looking for info on an oncidium intergeneric cross called Cambria. Cambria is an Oncidopsis (used to be Vuylstekeara). If so, it likes medium light, and temps on the cooler side of intermediate. Like other oncidiums, it doesn't want to stay wet, but doesn't want to quite dry out either...water as it approaches dry.

    Good luck!

    Thanks Kathi for the new name. Vuyl (Vuylstekeara) Cambria is red and and it was a trigeneric cross. In Europe most red Vuyl went by the common name of Cambria so this orchid might not be the real Cambria. Oncidopsis (Oip) is bigeneric (Miltoniopsis x Oncidium), so what happened to the Cochlioda in the original Vuyl Cambria, I wonder.

    BTW Samuel, Kathi has provided you with very good advice. I tried growing Vuyl or Oid Cambria 'Plush' once but the heat of the lowlands where I live, killed it.

    where I live we have a temperate climate, in winter it's pretty cold, but we don't reach -10 degrees, and in summer we reach 35 degrees.... the orchid is in the house during the whole year.. Do you think I might have any problems in future??
