    Cool Dinema polybulbon

    I took about two or three dozen pictures to get two where you could see the flower. My camera is having issues with focusing where I want it to. lol I've had this one for awhile. Was beginning to wonder if I could bloom it..

    From what I have read, it will spread out and make a large carpet to cover the mount. I can tell it won't take long as it is growing 4 and 5 pbulbs at a time. I keep it with my vanda types, only abit more shaded. So far it is a happy one. I'm suprised more don't grow the tiny ones. It is amazing how many of these I can fit hanging from the top shelves and not impede air movement. lol I love the mini's lately! Suprisingly, I didn't lose a singe miniature in the big storm.

    Surprised how yellow the blooms on yours are, Connie. Often the brown/mahogany is more dominant. A very easy mini to grow ... and very forgiving of mistakes, IME.

    Connie, your flower is not fully open yet...it will last for awhile so you have plenty time to get a good photo later. The flower is fragrant too.

    I still call mine Encyclia polybulbon. FWIW, I grow mine under bright shade, not much more than Phal. light, not too hot either...
    Yes, this species will grow fast once it reaches certain size. It can double in size easily once it has lots of leads.

    i just got one of these in the mail yesterday. i was thinking it was a mini, like oncidium twinkle, but this thing is a micro-mini!! i hope i don't kill it right off. it can supposedly live outdoors here in socal but i am debating whether i should winter it inside this time just to be safer. it came mounted on a piece of treefern with some moss. i was hoping to plant it into a treefern pot, so i think i can just set it in the hole and leave it for a while. i have a spot with dappled sun through trellis and shade cloth, shadier but bright in summer time. mine is only maybe half the size of yours, but it has 2 sheaths already and some new growths coming out. it is so tiny i am afraid to touch it! yours seems to have very bright yellow flowers, most i have seen online are more yellow/brown. any tips on how to not kill this little thing would be amazing!

    Mine hangs in the vanda section and I hang it under a shelf where it gets roughly cattleya light levels. They don't seem to be fussy, but like high humidity and lots of air movement. I am always pleasantly suprised when a plant doesn't mind my kind of care (aka abject neglect at times followed by way too much t.l.c.). So far this one seems to like it and is attempting to grow off one end of the mount out into a neighboring pot so I'd put it in the hard to kill section. lol Usually with "rare" plants I try to make sure they also say, easy or for beginners. Best of luck with yours...i'm guessing you will have your own cool little flowers in no time.
    p.s. If I don't answer right away, I apologize. I am having issues. I'll get it together one of these days....maybe.
