    Default noid oncidium

    Here is another noid orchid that recently bloomed for me. I have no idea what it is.
    The flowers are purpleish red and have a light scent, sort of sickly sweet, like powdered sugar. They remind me of Sherry Baby in a way, but I have one of those too and they're not exactly the same. This plant's spikes (there were three) grew much differently. Rather than tall and ferning, the spikes grew short and sort of clustered together. Does anyone know what this is?

    Thanks in advance!

    Anna

    It looks like my Oncidium Ruffles (ornithorhycum x fuscatum...I think)
