    Gorgeous! I had an Olemec that was similar. It got an odd mold in the bottom of the pot and when I repotted it died. Your flowers are gorgeous...makes me miss my olemec.

    this orchid pulled me head-first into oncidiums. lovely flowers you have there! are you noticing any scent? i'm between spikes right now, but i noticed a nice but faint scent on mine before. it took about a week to get going, but had sort of a honey and spice smell. when it had 2 spikes open it was much more strong.

    Beautiful. I agree it is a hard one to photograph. Can never seem to capture the true colors. Yours is lovely.

    Great growing, I have a Mtssa. Shelop Webmaster it looks the same as yours and it blooms at least twice a year. Do I see right, you have yours growing in a basket? I find lately that I re-pot more and more of my chids into baskets and they are consequently doing better then before. What is your opinion about it?
