    Cool Oncidium Sweet Sugar 'Emporer'

    I posted this plant originally in September of 2008. I had just finished mounting the three tiny p-bulbs that survived the larger plants' bad case of rot, onto a large piece of driftwood with two other plants. This oncidium is the only of the three still on the driftwood, and the first to rebloom. Here is it's first pretty bloom...i'll update the pics when the flowers are fully open. I was upset when the original spike was broken, but it sent out two branches so I get to see it bloom after all.

    ...I may have to nickname this one "Patience"!

    Great looking orchid mount, Connie. I bet that will be amazing as it grows and covers the log.

    cheers,

    Is going to look lovely once they have all opened on top of that driftwood.

    The foliage looks great, too, Connie - I predict a bright future for this oncid - kudos to your patience!

    I use it as a display up on the bar when we have company..I agree it is nice now. But can you imagine in a few years when there is more plant than mount? That will also be nice...

    i've been trying to track one of these down with no luck. you used to be able to find them everywhere. now i learn i can grow them outdoors year round, and cannot find one... dang it. i love how yours has rooted to the end of the mount. it looks like it will be happy.
