    Hi everyone. I thought I'd post a few pics of my oncidium that is in bloom. I'd love to know what type oncidium it is, if anyone can tell by the pics. They might be a bit blurry though. Below that is a pic of my green ladyslipper. I took your advice and repotted her in a ceramic pot. If you look closely you can see that one of the older leaves is turning yellow. Is this normal? This leaf is very mature. It was already a little yellow when I repotted her, but it seems to be worse now. Anything I can do? Does the rest of the plant appear healthy? Thanks.

    Lovely markings on that "Oncidium".... I am wondering if it might be one of the Colmanara Wildcats....

    as for the Paph, loosing the oldest leaf is normal... esp after repotting... from what I can see though, you may want to not give the plant that much sun... Paphs, especially the mottled variety can take a little less light than what you have it in... it looks like it is getting hit with direct sun.. big no no, as it can burn the leaves... early days of repotting esp, always a good idea to give it a little less light for a bit until the plant is settled in again.

    cheers

    ps sorry if above doesn't fully make sense or read bad... i've just woken up!

    thanks tim. Actually, I just pulled my ladyslipper across the baker's rack to take the picture. It doesn't get full sun; it just looks that way in the pic. I appreciate the advice!
