    Working from memory, that sure looks a lot like a Degarmoara Winter Wonderland.... although the DegWW might have some purple spotting on the top petal.

    I'll second this choice.

    Just for the record, this is the flowering of my Winter Wonderland about 2 or 3 months ago... I'm sure it is in the same Oncidium Alliance.

    That means it needs the conditions favored by intergeneric oncidiums to keep it growing well. Bright light, but only morning sun shining on it directly (east window, maybe with a sheer curtain between the plant and window). 55 to60 farenheit at night, 80 to 85 farenheit during the day. 50 to 60 % humidity, let dry between waterings. a lot of orchids will thrive under these conditions. Not enough east windows? Try flourescent lights about 6 to 12 inches above the plants.

    I would add my agreement to Degarmoara Winter Wonderland. Yours is probably a different clone from Howard's, hence the lack of purple spot in the top (dorsal) sepal. There are several quite similar clones of this attractive plant. Ciindi's cultural advice is excellent, but it will grow quite happily at slightly cooler daytime temperatures, too.

    Cheers,
    Rob
