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.
Very pretty. I really like oncidiums.
Congrats Jeff. Awesome colours.
nice growing,great plant, great blooms
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..........
Beautiful! Great growing.
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?
What a beautiful orchid!
