    Is it a catt, or oncidium? From the leaf picture, it looks like a catt, but the bloom is oncidium.

    It's an oncid type....I have a couple. One is a Tolumnia and the other a Rodricium. They are just amazing little things. Make sure when the temps drop you let it have at down to about 45 degrees. I even left it out on the porch last winter when it got lower than that. These tiny oncids (like the nobile dens) need the colder temps to flower. So tiny yet so many blooms. They are wonderful little plants and yours looks seriously healthy. Great buy!

    Thank you. I forget that Tolumnia has thicker leaves.

    You will love how easy this one is to grow.
    Not that easy for me. I bought 3 Tolumnia years ago, and they died as soon as they finished bloom I am afraid to try any now.
