    Default Oncidium Catatante "Pacific Sun Spots"

    this was a home improvement place rescue last summer. it has been in my south facing window all winter, shaded by a thin linen curtain. very bright light, slight morning sun at best. fits right in with the colorscheme of the stains i use on my furniture.

    It's Colmanara and the orange color especially on this is really rather striking! Great orchid that can get rather large. AL

    i think it has been changed to odontocidium now. i got it tagged as an oncidium. i've seen it listed a few different ways. in protest i now refer to any oncidium related plant as an "Oncidisomething" if it can be found listed under 3 or more names. tag abreviation: Onsom Catatante "Pacific Sun Spots"
