    Default Trichocentrum Kuquat

    Great Thanksgiving colors and a wonderful, very strong fragrance. These used to be called Mule Ear Oncidiums. This is the second spike to bloom. The first one faded before the second one bloomed. There's a third spike in bud now.

    i've been googling trichocentrum... not a whole heck of a lot of cultural info... and what there is is all contradictory. some seem to be cool growers, some are warm growers... although i imagine they all do well under 'normal' oncidium care, i'd love to grow one of these outside..........

    I still haven't figured them out. This one has done very well but I had a different cross that just suddenly died for no apparent reason. I've heard that they need to be watered often which makes sense because they have no pseudobulbs. This one gets cattleya type light. Most of all, you just don't see them for sale very often.

    right, but then i was also reading that many come form areas with prolonged dry seasons and should get a winter rest... but with almost no pbulb, how can they do that? my dendrobium kingianum is the only orchid i have that needs a real winter dry spell, and the bulbs look gone, just little stringy stick-stems now... the leaves look fine, but i keep thinking i am going to kill the poor thing. the trichocentrums supposedly have 'succulent leaves' and can wrinkle up but come back to normal looking when you water??? how does that work?
