    Default Odbrsa. Pisgah Recluse

    Hello, everyone.
    I just purchased a Odontobrassia Pisgah Recluse from a well known, large, orchid nursery that I am sure you would recognize the name....anyway, they say it is in the Oncidium family but I have no experience with Odontobrassias, I do have some good luck with Oncidiums.

    Any feedback/advice on how to care for this orchid would be appreciated.

    But the main reason I am writing is because it is growing in a weird way, and I have no idea how to repot it. One pseudobulb has no leaves, one does, and the other is growing up high. If I repot it, should I bury the pseudobulb below it? Also, was going to use phal potting mix with a little sphagnum moss to help new growth; that is unless someone tells me differently.

    This is 3/4 various Brassia species and 1/4 Odontoglossum (or Oncidium, or Miltoniodes) cariniferum. It is going to look and act like a Brassia. Officially it is Brassidium Pisgah Recluse now. It should do fine under general Oncidium intergeneric conditions, or treat it as a Brassia.

    It seems to have a climbing habit, so it might be a good candidate for mounting, or pot it deeper and remove any back bulbs that would be completely buried. A more open well draining medium might tempt it to climb less, so sphagnum might not be helpful.

    It seem that this plant is easy to flower in your area I would suggest to cut the 2 pseudobulb that the most prominent and mount to something as recommended by Kirk if you very lucky the back bulb as long as no infection it will give you another keiki.

    yes i agree with the mounting of such plants that have a long rhizome and climb on top one another e.g. Brazilian Miltonias......do not remove the older backbulb cuz it is still feeding the plant...dont bury it either if u do use a pot
