    I also read that it is much the same in culture as Oncidium - any truth in that?

    Thanks again!

    Hello Veda Maas,

    I just bought one too. My local big box store had one. It was love at first sight. I am with you on trying to find out how to care for her. I googled the name and really not much comes back at me. I hope someone is successful in growing these.
    Help please.
    Karen

    Hi!

    I have been giving it the same care as an Oncidium and it seems to be doing just fine!

    So, after caring for him (was quite easy - he must love my environment) he has started spiking again!!! Just 6 months later! Roots growing like crazy as well...

    Aaaaaaaand.... this is officially my first orchid to re-bloom - the excitement!!!!
