    Red face Oncidium Twinkle

    I am slowly learning about my orchids, as I didn't have a clue to actually what I was handling. All I knew is that I have a bunch of poorly orchids I got online and I have to save them. This one is one of them and is called Oncidium Twinkle. It is a gem and is sweetly fragrant.

    There is always a learning curve, Gurjeet. Plant looks good so far.

    I love Oncidium Twinkle! Congrats! I learned that this one doesn't like to dry out very much between waterings. My 2 cents.

    Thanks Gage, I have been treating it like a regular Onc. though. I didn't water it unless any roots sprouted, then it flowered and now its on a regular watering regime. Its a tiny plant with numerous pseudobulbs clumped. Its a 4 inch pot and it has moer than 16 pseudobulbs, each smaller than a size of the segment of your index finger. It would be great if someone could tell me how to fertilise it, I expect some larger pseudobulbs not as big but comparatively bigger than what it already has.
