    Oh, actually I'm not sure if it is an equitant. I have heard they are very difficult to grow.

    equitants are the very small oncidiums that look like neofinetia falcatas. small thick succulent leaves in small clumps. brightly colored flowers. some genius taxonomists moved them into a new genus: tolumnia.

    I will look forward to seeing you picture, maybe it isn't as sick as you think.

    I had a hard time at first with them. Then I mounted them all on cork bark with a little bit of sphag moss and the took off and grew like weeks. The roots like to be able to 'search' for the moisture, not be in it. I have found equitants to be very rewarding. You get the full size flower from a very little plant. A very nice space saver.
