    Default Oncidium ID?, for now I just call it the "Death Orchid" :)

    Hello! I just joined the forum, and will try to upload a photo of an Oncidium I purchased recently at a flower shop. When I got it home I noticed the strange pattern of the blossoms which are "hauntingly" amazing. The only info I have is Onc. Any help,suggestions,directions would be very much appreciated!

    It is a stunning oncidium orchid, but I do not know the bloom. It could be wildcat, but hopefully someone will see the photo and recognize it from their collection too.

    cheers,

    After spending hours looking at images, I finally found it! Y445 Brassidium Golden Gamine 'White Knight'. I've never seen any other orchid that has such a recognizable human facial pattern!
