    Default Holy overgrown Oncidium, Batman!!!

    A while back I bought an onc. sphacelatum that was overgrown. I didn't really have time to mess with it, so it has sat for a few months. Well, I tore it apart and let the pieces sit for a week or so. Today was the day! After cleaning it up and getting rid of the bad bulbs I ended up with 13 pots of plant. All have at least 3 bulbs and most have 5 or more.

    I don't know if that is the right name, but you send out plants free and then when they get big enough to divide, the new owners to the same.
