    Default This cambria was a surprize

    This is one of my rescued ochids
    I bought it without a bloom, but judging by the wilted flowers on the pot media I thought it is going to be a pink Bureageara
    to my surprize it is a Odontocidium Hansueli Isler
    I didn'i had this one so it is welcome to my collectionName:  Odontocidium Hansueli Isler .JPG

    Its not Hansueli Isler. If the correct name comes to my mind I'll post it here.
    Two reasons ; the lip is quite wrong - HI has a much rounder shape to the whole flower ; and the colour.
    For the genuine Hansueli Isler - which has far more reddish spots and bars, see my very recent posting under that name.

    I am also a bit unhappy about using the name Cambria for a type of orchid ; I know the old Dutch nurserymen, when they first turned to orchids, and were completely ignorant about them, used that name , they did so because the first orchid they grew was Vuylestekeara Cambria var Plush FCC/RHS - so they called all orchids Cambrias.
    I have actually seen Burrageara Nelly Mosers on sale at the shop at the main RHS garden, labelled as Cambria ! I made them take them off sale until they had been correctly named.
    Without being too pedantic, we can at least call them Oncidium types.

    Hello
    you are right
    I found out that the orchid above is a Colmanara Wildcat Tiger, I just hadn;t had time yet to correct my error
    as for labelling orchids as cambria, the vendors here do it with almost every orchid that is other than a phal, paph or dendrobium
    I bought Burrageara, Zygos, Brassidiums, oncidiums etc labelled as such
    So my intention wasn't to make anyone unhappy just picked up a bad habbit I guess

    The Colmanara is fragrant in the mornings and I am growing it under lights in my bedroom so I can enjoy it all day

    I'll have to agree with Geoff re the Name 'Cambria'.I wince every time I see the use of 'Cambria' for all Oncidium types.
