    I got the same one - I recognize the pot - for less than 10 bucks at my favorite grocery chain! they often have nice orchids and today they had a new arrival. they had a bunch of these with many bids still closed.
    I wonder if I would have liked a pink one. but looks great by my bed next to the purple Oxalys.
    I can smell the scent... but not nearly as good as my Cestrum nocturnum [Night Blooming Jasmine - not a true Jasmine]...

    I do not have so much room left and I am more into species... but this being a primary hybrid cuts it!

    It's so pretty. I like the white one better than my pink one. For some reason my pink one only opens 3-4 flowers at a time.

    @stefpix- I water the tiny Oncids 2/week during bright/hot weeks and 1/week during the dark/colder weeks. I water every Saturday and check the moisture level on Wednesday-ish, water if necessay. (So, mostly 2-3 times a week during the spring and summer, 1-2 times during the fall and 1 time a week in the winter) It gets filtered light, I set it along with my Miltoniopsis and Miltonia. Sounds like you got a good price! And I have a ton of these pots, I bought several plants with pots like these a while back and have them in the cabinet.

    do you spray the surface with water too mid week? would 2 40 W T12 shoplights be enough? the phals and spathoglottis are spiking...

    It's been so dark outside lately, like the last month, I haven't been misting. Don't want rot or anything else setting in from too much humidity. I do use sphag in my mixes, and if they feel real dry I water a second time during the week.

    Your light will prolly be fine. If the leaves stay a lime green, or like a light green with a hint of yellow, it's getting the right amount of light. If they start to get a dark forest green, move it closer to your lights or a shaded north facing window.
