    Default Little chickadee

    I just got this plant.. It's a oncidium little chickadee x onc. sniffen 'jennifer dauro' FCC. I have found what a sniffen one looks like, but I cannot find the hybrid or just the little chickadee. It keeps giving me the bird. Any ideas on what it will look like?

    Onc. Little Chackadee is supposed to have "large purple flowers," so I imagine the cross will look very similar to the pic you put up, with possibly bigger blooms. We've never grown either of those and a Google search for the Chickadee brought up just the one reference with that little description.

    So I guess you'll have a nice surprise waiting for you when you bloom it!

    When do I stop using the bloom booster on my dendrobium. The flowers are still pretty strong, but because of the aphids there is only two that are still blooming. Also, my "spider" orchid is still going strong too, do I stop using the bloom booster at the same stage as the dendrobium?

    Technically, once all of the buds on a spike have opened, the bloom booster won't do much more good, so you can stop using it on any plant whose flowers are all open.
