    Default Odm Hallio-crispum x Geyser Gold

    I expect that it is now an oncidium, but I'll leave it as an Odont , since that is what it has been for a hundred years I guess -- well at least Odm hallii x Odm crispum. Geyser Gold must be getting a bit long in the tooth too now, but thats Ok, so am I.
    Bought as an unflowered seedling a year ago, and put into S/H. First flowers here. Maybe I can get it up to a 20 or more flowerd branched spike ; maybe, there's no harm hoping.
    Flowers 2 and half inches, I suppose.
    It is crispum of course which gives the "crisped" wavy edges to the petals and sepals.

    In West Africa it was nice low twenties by night and high twenties, occasionally 30-32 by day - lovely. Two weeks of that, and back home its 10 by night and 12 by day, when its grey or drizzly , and tonight, they say, the sky will clear, temperatures drop to minus 2, then rise to 13 in clear sunshine tomorrow. But on reflection, and after visiting so far about 90 countries in the world, there's only one place I want to live the rest of the time, when not travelling, - and I am there now.

    Very beautiful Odm, Geoff. Glad to hear that you had a good time in West Africa. I ,too, have just been back from the Chinese New Year holidays up in the Cameron Highlands where I spent 10 days enjoying the cool weather 20 during the day and 16-18 at night, mostly sunny and sometimes cloudy; Just back today to the humid lowlands with temp in the mid 30s.
