    Default Oncidium Wildcat "Carmela"

    This is one of the easiest plants to grow and bloom in my culture. Most of the year it sits outside looking messy, and suddenly in late summer or early fall it pops out the most dramatic bloom spikes.
    I know people tend these plants more carefully and they bloom at least twice a year for them. I should try this next year (or at least repot it for next year)

    Beautiful variety of Wildcat, Gita. Well done for growing them so well. Wildcat is now an Odontocidium (Odcdm) and at one time a Colmanara. Blame the taxonomist!

    Epidendrum Pseudepidendrum

    This bloomed all through the summer, and I took many pictures, but I can't seem to find any of the others. Never got more than 2 blooms at once, though I have 3 viable spikes on this plant.

    Dendrobium laevifolium

    This little cutie has been blooming for 4 months at least, and continuing to grow and open more flowers. It only has 2 leaves though. I grow it cool and moist. (I hope it survives my amatuerish care through the dormant season.)

    Thanks, Yew! Yes, it's a Colmanara- I knew that once! I never think twice about these guys- just throw them in a corner outside and throw some water at them, and then they put out these gorgeous blooms and I'm all "Oooooh and Aaaah" and feel I should have loved them more through the year!
