    Default Oncidium varicosum

    I "inherited" this plant from an acquaintance of an acquaintance, sort of a dead aunt of a friend of a friend who heard I grow orchids sort of thing! It was in bad shape when I got it and I cut it down to 2 pseudobulbs, two of which later rotted, but it bloomed for me last summer and now again this year so just has those two pseduobulbs on it currently. I mentioned this in another post, but last summer it had an enormous spike with numerous branches, but this summer it was much smaller without any branching at all and it started the spike much later in the summer than last year. I think I kept it in too high of light with not enough water/fertilizer this summer which is why it is so wimpy this year, but it is beautiful nonetheless. (last summer it stayed indoors the entire time, this year outdoors most of the time) I question if it's really a species varicosum but don't really care because it has beautiful blooms and is definitely a 'keeper'. Enjoy...
