    Looking at your close-up picture I think that your plant could be Odcm Wild Cat and the reduced light in winter might be the cause of the lengthening of the spike. I have noticed that Wild Cat spikes tend to be more compacted when exposed to more light and more elongated when light levels are lower.

    So does this only happen with the oncidiums?

    Yew Sung ... it may be the reason and this. I though I bought fertilizer, the company COMPO, (the strongest on here for orchids), Bruce taught me how.
    This winter I changed the plant site, really. It bloomed several times before, but never like this ... I like .. although imperfect .. My problem is with its positioning, as I see it all in its beauty ..

    So is this only possible with the oncidium?
    I think it happens with most orchids. Very noticeable in dendrobiums and vandas.
