    Very pretty Tolumnia - once called Equitant oncidium.

    Looks a great deal like Rodrumnia Big T , although I wouln't bet the farm on that - there are just too many similar-looking plants.

    At a big show this year the Tolumnias really caught my eye. They are not large, but they have such concentration and intensity of colour! Probably a visual effect created by the zoning and shading: solid saturated colours bordered by soft pale shades... outstanding!

    Yes, a Tolumnia, which is in the Oncidium family. Here is the AOS info on Tolumnia culture: Tolumnia Basics

    Love the blooms on this Tolumnia orchid. I had a hard time growing these because they dried up so fast in my growing area.

    cheers,
