When will people stop labeling orchids, "Orchid", "Intergeneric", "Oncidium," etc. ? I have this oncidium (labeled "Oncidium" ) which is one of those yellow dancing lady types. In the past I've either seen Onc. Gower Ramsey or Onc. Sweet Sugar being sold, so I have to assume my oncidium is one of the two. The thing is, I'm not sure which one mine is. I've heard a Sweet Sugar flower is larger than Gower Ramsey, but I don't have anything to compare my onc with, but I measured the lip and the widest (horizontally) is 1.5 inches. Are there any other differences to distinguish between the two? Thanks for any help--I'd love to have one less noid orchid.
That's going to be a tough one, Lily! Flower size can vary from blooming to blooming on the same plant, so even that won't be a reliable indicator.
