    Default Comparettia speciosa x Oncidium Rische

    I bought this on Saturday - so snapped it quick before who knows what happens to it ! I do like Comparettias, but they are not the easiest things to keep alive for long periods ; I suspect that as twig epiphytes they are quite short-lived in nature, which gives me a good excuse if they die on me, as once they did fast, then slkow, and hey I think I have kept a couple going for two years now....maybe a hybrid will be easier - who knows.Name:  Comparettia-speciosa-x-Onci.jpg

    Well Geoff it sounds like the life span of Comparettia's is headed in the right direction at least. Lovely, sunny blooms. AL
