    Shazam! Look at all the blooms! That orchid has more blooms than plant. I love it. Great growing and blooming, Miva.

    Cheers,

    It does show you why we actually need the taxonomic botanists though .Wilsonara it maybe, but who looking at it would have said it was an Odontoglossum, an Odontioda, an Odontonia,or maybe something else altogether ? We used to have Odontoglossums, Oncidiums, and all kinds of inter-generics with way-out names (additional ones which again often look just like this, being Aliceara, Burrageara , Degamoara, Maclennanara, etc etc -BTW put your hand up if you think you can name all the "constituent genera", accurately, in all of those ... I can't ).My favourite by the way is Forgetara , I keep forgetting what that consists of !.
    We all grumble about changing labels to keep up ( you don't grumble ? You obviously don't get all the instructions from the International Authority on Botanical Nomenclature ! ) . Now that all these things are Odontoglossums, there areno Oncidiniae inter-generics ;- well, that's a bit of an exaggeration, lets just say, far fewer intergenerics, since they are now mostly plain Odontoglossums...and maybe the ones they haven't changed yet (Aspasia ?) are only because they ahven't got round to them yet .
    And then again, they do keep changing their minds don't they - Laelias became Sophros, so Slcs , like Lcs all became Scs, and then sophros became Cattleyas, so theyall turned into Cs....
    or have they changed their minds again since I had my lunch ?
    Certainly I wonder if there are Wilsonaras any more; W= Cochlioda, Odontoglossum and Oncidium - at least two of those are odontoglossums now, maybe all three...? Well I never did very well growing them , maybe I'll do better if they are called Odontoglossums....
    It's a great life if you don't weaken.
