    Superb Bruce, I must have one of these! Are they difficult to grow? What kind of culture?

    Very pretty. The markings and the shape remind me of a butterfly.

    No, not hard, but for some reason this oncidium likes to be a bit cooler than the others we grow. We keep it next to the Kool-cell and it blooms and blooms. We feed it just like everything else and it gets oncidium light. You can see it grows in between some of our paphs.

    It's lovely. This is another type of orchid I kill regularly so have given up on them...

    Meg the cooler temps are relative to where you live. It may be just fine where you grow. It gets really hot here in Arkansas.
