    Yep, oncidiums: Light media, like to be moist, high humidity, medium bright light, good air movement.

    Sort of hard to tell about the color, but I was actually tending towards Peggy Ruth Carpenter on this one. Try comparing to some googled pics of that one too.

    Ahhh I think peggy ruth carpenter is a little closer. Anyone have any idea about my other one, in the 'police won't help' thread.

    Still no internet connection!!!! I moved back in May lol, they assure me it will be sorted next week. Using the folks internet back home.

    All orchids are well. The one pictured above finished flowering, and now is growing again, blooms about a week or two off I would say. All phals are now out of bloom but growing really well on the leaf and root front gonna try and trigger some blooms with a bit of cold

    Wonder of wonders, my white egret orchid is growing really well. I could find no definitive advice on how to care for it, so I treat it like my others, except in a slightly less porous mix. Its only a few inches high, but I heard they are only tiny little things. I will try and get a pic sorted when my net at the flat is working! If you've not seen this type of orchid do an image search online somewhere, they're beautiful lol I can't wait for blooms!

    Anyway, nice to catch up on everyones posts! Take care
