    Default Oncidium ornithorhynchum 'Pam's Special'

    This is a Central American species that has very fragrant with long lasting flowers. Many years it will bloom more than once a year for me, with maturation of a new growth. If you love fragrant species (vanilla with spice and chocolate undertones) that is fairly easy to grow and bloom and that remains compact add this to your list!

    This is actually 2 spikes, one from either side of the growth. I overlaid them for the pic. The flowers are about 3/4" (2cm) in size

    So pretty, Ron. I wish I could smell that one! Looks like this orchid has about 200 blooms!

    Cheers,

    I am not one for counting..lol...but I bet that number is fairly close.
    I was tempted to bring it home with me to enjoy and would have if it wasn't such a cold day.

    Stunning plant and really breathtaking. I am a new community member, Ron. I see many beauties but this makes me want to ask, how does one go about acquiring the same or similar plants that are posted on the site?

    Bob, I obtain plants from attending shows and buying from vendors there, googling vendors to order from, and trading. This one came from a trade with a hobbyist, Pam, in Chicago. I have a fairly large collection and the orchids eventually need dividing giving me trading fodder. Many of my orchids have come to me in trade.

    Ron; I have this orchid also. The fragrance emitting from my blooms was like lavender soap. Loved the small flowers. By the way that is a good size Oncidium producing two multiple bloom cascades! Great plant! AL
