    Default Bllra. Marfitch 'Howards Dream'

    And another pretty oncidium in bloom. This one is on the potting bench because it needed some serious attention. It had root rot, but before I could get the time to repot it, it put up a spike and bloomed. LOL. I staked it today, so the blooms are a bit twisted as it was heading toward the light on the side of the GH. Anyway... here it is.

    Uh, Bruce? It spiked and bloomed while waiting for you on the potting bench?! Sounds like a long wait. LOL. Well, it figured out how to get your attention! I bought one of these due to gorgeous pictures here on OT, and that plant is becoming a monster! ha
