    Default A cute little Oncid. alliance NOID

    Phillip convinced me to get this little one about 2 months ago. It stands about a foot tall and I suspect the two inflorescences it has probably constitute its second (maybe third) blooming. The blooms themselves are a little over an inch wide. I'm not crazy about the white and maroon coloring, but the blooms are very round and flat. The only tag it has says "oncidium" (thanks a lot - that was helpful...), and the more I look at different oncid. intergenerics, the more confused I get.

    Not holding my breath for someone to recognize it, but it would be nice.

    In the meantime, I'm enjoying its cuteness....

    I have no clue but I love it! The crispness of the colors and the contrast are just beautiful! I really wish more onc/intergenaric hyprids had this color combo. Is it possible Odontoglossum ?

    Very pretty Maura. I think it's an Odontocidium - if the colour had been yellow instead of white I would have thought it was Odcm Wildcat.

    Yes, I agree with Yew Sung. I believe it is an Odontocidium.

    I wish these would grow in my area. We just get too hot. When you see these grouped together they are like a psychedelic artshow. They all have trippy colors and mesmerizing patterns.
