I posted about this one several weeks ago--had repotted and was thinking I was starting to lose the plant. Had it potted in a way too big clay pot in a bark mix.
Moved it back down to a smaller, plastic pot with mostly sphag. and it seems to be doing better. New growth looks good, not wrinkled, not rotting...roots look good I think....so maybe it's going to make it!

you will find that Oncidium alliance like to be more moist and the sphagnum works well for this.
Your pot is still very large even though it looks to be a 4 inch pot. It is a young division. It will have a hard time drying out. It will not need watering very often potted like this. Watch it close and you may be watering as little as every other week.
Next time push the non-growing part of the plant up to the side of the pot and allow more room for the plant in the direction in which it is growing.
