    Default One more question for the masters

    I've been told by a local Thai that this is a member of the Cattleya family. I am suspicious since it has multiple flowers on a stalk similar to Dend.

    Again I'm looking for info. in order not to kill them...

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Someone made a mistake. That is a member of the oncidium family. Check out this LINK # 2, 5, & 13 for more information.

    Cheers,

    No, its not a member of the Cattleya family. Its an Oncidium hybrid. Maybe Oncidium Gower Ramsey or Oncidium Sweet Sugar.

    Thank you both. Now I've got something to track.

    I also think I have more the lady across the soi gave me. No flower to compare though. She says "flowers once a year on a long stem."

    Thks again
