    Default My Christmas Present, Oncidium Pacific Truffle 'Surrogate Star'

    I thought I would share my Christmas present with ya'll. The tag says GdIra. Pacific Truffle 'Surrogate Star' Patent Process Initiated. I have now been told it is in the Oncidium Alliance. It is a light mauve color.

    Thanks for the information, Murray, I appreciate the help. As a new collector, I was just going by the tag that came with it "GdIra. Pacific Truffle'Surogate Star' Patent Process Initiated".
