    Dana, those are very easy to grow under regular Oncidium conditions: good light (more than Maudiae Paphs and Phals), warm, let the roots dry off between waterings. Some will even bloom twice a year.

    Do you care how big the plant gets? I know, for me at least, that I often fall in love with plants online, then see them in person at a store and say "man that thing is humongous." Case in point, Dgmra. Winter Wonderland. Love it, saw it at HD and the leaves were SO long I said forget it. Living in a studio, and owning my max of plants, I'm trying to limit the big guys (unless their phrags, then I suck it up). :-)

    I have no idea how big the plant gets, just wanted to make sure you didn't care.

    Ilja, that sounds great to me! Do you happen to know where i could find more information about it?

    The point John made is a good one, i should find out how big these sweeties get.

    Then i'll start the impossible task to try to find one here.....ah well at least it keeps me bussy

    John, you're right--the leaves get pretty big, especially when the plant matures and develops more than a few PBs.

    Dana, I have no clue about European vendors, but I imagine a google search should give you some good places to start. The Tahoma Glaciers we grow (same genus) do really well with regular, warm oncidium conditions so they're not difficult plants in terms of having to provide an environment that's vastly different than ones in which humans are comfortable living. I remember your saying somewhere on here that light intensity and duration is an issue where you are--that would be the only drawback for you I think. These plants need lots of bright light for their new growths to develop strongly enough to bloom.

    My Peggy Ruth Carpenter is large, but not huge -- mine is about 17 inches high. The Beallara that you want to avoid if your space is limited is Marfitch's Howard's Dream. The spike on the one below is 34 inches. Good luck finding a Peggy Ruth.

    Lisa, i'm not sure, the site where i found this pic named it as Bellearra Peggy Ruth Carpenter. It could of course be named wrong, i dunno.
