    Thumbs up Oncidium Pretty Flamingo 'Freezia'

    Anyone help? Purchased this at an Orchid Show yesterday, had this tag. No flower. ( I went against my instinct and bought, without seeing flower). Checked the RHS site, can only find Oncid. Flamingo registered. Anyone have a photo of Oncidium Flamingo?

    Hi Annette,

    I could only find a cymbidium by that name: Cymbidium Pretty Flamingo (Cymbidium Ann Miller x Cymbidium Peter Pan)

    Hope this helps.

    cheers,
    BD

    Bruce, there was another label in the pot, I found after repotting.... ODODM (Odontocidium?)Pretty Flamingo 'Freezia'. This is weird. There is on the RHS site.. Oncidium Flamingo, Oncidium Pacific Flamingo.

    Further on to this post, a flower stalk is coming. Just have to wait now for the flower. Might have more information then for an ID.

    Okay, here are pictures following on from my post in July. Flower measures approx. 1 1/2 inch radius. 2 flower stalks. Not much "Flamingo" in this plant? Maybe a wrong tag applied? I would appreciate any help to it's ID. The label read "Odonto. Pretty Flamingo 'Freezia'.
