    I was looking for a 'Twinkle' when I went out today. I couldn't find it...they had the huge monster Sherry Babys all over the place, but their size was what sent me over to the smaller 'Sweet Sugar'. And seeing your comments reminds me I need to update my "wanted" list. lol

    My Oncidium Twinkle 'White Cap' is a nice size and is getting ready to blossom all over the place. It is in a 3" pot and is about 14" tall.

    Rob I don't know Edit: I see 2 references to an alba form when I google, but don't see any pics.

    Excellent! Thanks, Joe, for the links. My only complaint is now that I know there is an alba form of ornithorhynchum, do I need to have one??? LOL Of course, what I really need is more space. No, wait, what I really need is the time to adequately tend them all!

    Cheers,

    Rob
