    Smile Onc. Josephine x Onc. Haematochilum

    I got this the other day. I bought small baby 'Josephine' plants a long time ago and they died after one of my surgeries from either neglect or overwatering. I found this one in a local store and went silly. I was so excited to find one in bud and have been really amazed at how fast the flowers open! We sat and watched the first one yesterday...this morning I got up and found at least 5 more nearly open as well. One silly one bloomed sideways.... It is a nice cross.

    You have to think "dry", Ron. These are easy to rot.

    For an Oncidium type it is rather large. It is about 2 1/2 inches across, and the lip hangs down quite far making it look even larger. I would equate them with an ascocenda flower like the crown fox....size wise. Also; I was amazed after looking at the pictures of the parents, this one doesn't have the handle bar things on either side of the lip at the top. When you look at the parents split screen you can see that this one got the best of both.
