    Default Oncidium Sharry Baby

    Cheers,

    I got this 2 years ago, just as I am starting with this hobby. Unfortunately
    due to my lack of knowledge then (even now i guess), I have killed the mother
    plant but just before it died it produced a single growth that I was able to put
    into S/H and now 2 years later its given me its first flower... although only 4
    buds at the moment I am still happy simply because I now have the luxury of
    having the fragrance of vanilla chocolate without the calories.

    I am hoping for a better show in the future.

    I love it when a small, young orchid such as this produces such a amazing variety of colors. I am glad you were able to raise that single growth to fruition. AL

    The maroon/white clones such as 'Sweet Fragrance' are the most commonly seen, but 'Tricolor' clone has yellow like this one.

    Great save! Beautiful bloom you got there.
    Can't beat the fragrance of a Sherry Baby.

    Beautiful, I agree with the above about it being Oncidium Sharry Baby 'Tricolor'.
