    Question Oncidium question

    I am a newbie grower who has a few dendrobiums, phals and vandas. I want to add an oncidium or two to my collection. I would like to know if all oncidiums are fragrant other than Sharry Baby.

    Hi Nandini, glad you are here. To answer your question, Oncidiums and the intergeneric hybrids are almost always fragrant. There are exceptions and some are more fragrant than others. If you have the space, oncidiums can really put on a show and fill a room with their perfume when in bloom.
