    Hi Brenda
    I am not familiar with the Cedros Bee (maybe just a local name for it). Mule eared Oncidium spikes do branch, so you are possibly seeing buds forming.
    If you can, do take a picture of the plant and the spike. This would help in identifying what is happening.

    HI Angela,
    Thank you for your answer, I am posting a picture of the spike because I have the plant on a piece of sapodilla branch and I strapped it to the handrail of my back step so that I could monitor it, I had posted a picture of the whole plant in the newbee page earlier this month so I did not want to unhang it right now so I took a picture of the spike.

    I love the stories which go with the orchids. Not always is the acquisition uneventful. And the drama we so often go through in justifying a purchase, or the lengths we will go to find "that" special orchid, it also what it is about. and how about the agonies we suffer when an orchid is ill? Good grief! they are like our children! I go to my growing area and say "Good Morning Kids"!

    So, keep the stories coming

    Angela the Cedros Bee is our local name for T.lanceanum and if it was found in a "cherry tree" i highly doubt that ...what may have been found is T.luridum(Brown Bee)

    Hello King Kjeldz, could you tell me why the Cedros Bee could not be found in a cherry tree is it specific to a certain type of tree? I had posted a picture of it when I first joined, are two types of the plant similar where the leaves are concerned? this leaf is about twenty inches long, i suspect that it had bloomed before I found the plant as there was another spike tha was dried up, whichever bee it is I AM GLAD!!!!

    i've got a question... on several points of the enormous spikes, lower down than the current blooms, there are several nodes that look as though they could produce new branches... so, after these blooms fade, is it reasonable to assume that i could cut the spike back to above these nodes and encourage new spikes? it seems as though that would work but i was wondering if thats something anyone has experience with... thanks!
