    Default This oncidium bloomed for the wrong holiday

    After taking a bunch of pictures and going back through I realized that between the color and the fangs, this is one oncidium that should have bloomed back at Halloween! It's colors mix to appear orange from a distance while it appears much redder up close. It also appears much lighter during sunny days...but the real cool thing is the lip. The lip has what appears to be fangs, and well they are quite cool looking. Would have been much cooler two months ago; someone must have forgot to program that in genetically!! Sorry the last pic is abit blurry, it shows the pale color it appears to be when it's sunny in the living room.

    Hope you all enjoy it...and are having a wonderful Holidays!

    Very pretty Connie! I recall admiring this one at a show a couple of years ago.
    I hope your holidays are bright!

    I'm sure it's obvious, I'm beginning to try my hand at oncidiums. So far they are growing well here. Hopefully this will be one I can rebloom.
