    Matt, I have suggestion that may work. From what you have mentioned above, I have concluded that the main issue is humidity. This orchid isn't really difficult to grow. I have this plant growing under the following conditions, 60% shade, misted three times daily and rarely ever fertilized (do to time constraints). I try to avoid using pesticide and fungicide. The medium I have it grown in is coconut husk and charcoal. What I suggest you can do is to try growing it in sphagnum again but this time, grow the orchid in a humid location, example the bathroom.

    Jason-
    Thanks for the suggestion, that is pretty much what I did a few weeks back by adding a partially closed plastic surround with damp sphagnum moss wrapped to the bark. You can see the photos in my post titled "Will my oncidium ever re-root?"

    Gin-
    I wish I could just send the cold and snow somewhere else! LOL. It is 11 degress F. this am on my way to work, with wind chill of -2 degrees. BRRRR! Even for MN this is 15-20 degrees below average for early December! Glad my plants are tucked away safe and warm behind glass and plastic!

    Hi folks, I came across this post while going through google as I usually do in the orchids pages, I live in Trinidad in the central area and I got a surprise about a month or two ago when I discovered an oncid.(did not know what it was before this site) on a west indian cherry tree the roots had gone down about four feet or so onto a branch and because of the rainy weather before it was hidden high up, but with the dry season and leaves dropping I found it , I have it planted on a piece of sapodilla branch with spagnum moss and coconut fibre, the leaf is about eighteen inches long, spotted and a flower spike covered in blossoms, can't wait to see which one it is, maybe the cedros bee.
