    Default Oncidium onustum species orchid

    I seem to have difficulty with this species. Most years the spike blasts. The terminal end of this one blasted but I did get a couple of flowers. Any idea where my problem lies?

    I think this in now Zelenkoa onusta: needs bright light and plenty of water while in growth and after blooming they need rest with no water or fertilizer until new growth appears. I just bought Zelenkoa onusta a few weeks ago so I still have no experience...

    I have been wondering whether there's a site that keeps track of all the latest name changes. If you know of one, could you please PM me? I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
