    Default Trichocentrum Kuquat (Mule ear onc.)

    This is just starting to bloom. These used to be known as Mule ear oncidiums. They are very hardy and undemanding plants. The leaves are 15" long and the plant with spikes is 38" tall.

    Now that i'm better with certain plants I may give these another try. Previous plants have died...some faster than others. lol But I love the flowers. As one of my friends put it...they look like pieces of jewelry they are so elaborately colored. When sunlight hits them they light up like stained glass...
