    Has anybody ever seen one of these or owned one? Im guessing its more or less the same culture. I really want one though. Any help would be appreciated.

    There is one species that make up this new genus that was removed from Oncidium because of it's unusual habit and it has bilobed lacerate column wings and mottled leaves like Psychopsis


    Oncidium limminghei E. Morr. ex Lindley 1855 = Psychopsiella limminghei [E.Morr. ex Lindley] Lueckel & Braem 1982

    It's a strange one. Culture like a psychopsis... looks like an oncidium/intergenic... almost an alba.

    Psychosiella is difficult to grow.Needs good air flow and dry in between watering.Regular fertilizing cut it off in the winter(Dec. thru Feb) I grow it mounted to cypress,treefern and on cholla skeleton.Summer bloomer with a single flower per spike.If you are not familiar with psychopsis mounted dont try it.You will regret it.They can be picky,without proper care they are quick to go down hill...

    I dont have any mounted pyschopsis yet but Im not afriad to do it, Im going to wait until spring though, because my hyrbids are too big to mount and the species stopped growing.

    Do you know where I can get one? Pm please!

    If you want to mount a plant, I can recommend some sources, but I don't know of any selling a Psychopsis that's already mounted.

    If you're interested, PM me.
