    Default I need advise on Oncidium please!

    Hi! I have my Oncidium for several years now, maybe about 4 years already or a little more and it has not bloomed eversince yet.

    After the few orchids I have bloomed and got me very interested in growing orchids seriously, I am excited (and very anxious) for my oncidium to bloom too.

    Can you help me with tips and ideas on how to properly care for them so they will bloom? I have them in an area where they get a lot of sunlight.

    Thank you!

    Can you post a picture of it?

    Has it been adding new pseudo-bulbs each year? When was it re-potted last? Are you fertilizing it?

    Does the Oncidium have a tag so we know which Onc it is?

    Agree with Harvey. Post a picture of it and could possibly start off from there.

    Hi! Thank you for your comments. Here is the picture of my Oncidium. The person who gave me this said it is a dancing lady orchid. The color of the flower is Yellow.

    When I was looking at the picture after I took it, it was then that I noticed the stalk that will hold the flowers (I don't know what the stalk is called yet). I was surprised and realized I missed paying much attention to it. But, yey, it's gonna bloom real soon after all!
