    I have 3 orange flowered orchids:
    1) Oncidium Ramsey Gower Orange
    2) Dendrobium Oriental Smile 'Fantasy' (I posted about this one back in March. The image was made before the orange really developed on the flower)
    3) Tolumnia- I have an orange Tolumnia too

    Thanks, I will search and see those pics, I tried oncidium once, but they are tricky to please and we really didnt get along well, I tried everything and it still died (or I could have bought a sick plant without knowing, I really dont know) and in my old home we had lots of humidity and low indoor natural light. Things may change now since my new home ia the total opposite, but Ill wait some more to try that kind again.

    it's expensive here,. there are still many indonesian species orchid 2usd retail price, unicum not so many sells here and its 40 usd. big difference.. so far, i'd buy the cheaper ones first,..
    maybe if i go to thailand i'd buy it there...
