    Default Gower Ramsey, or some other Oncidium?

    I raised this from a tiny one-psb seedling that I bought for $0.75 around two years ago.
    I wonder whether this is really Oncidium Gower Ramsey, or some other hybrid? The usual "dancing lady" sold here has smaller flowers.
    Calling all Oncodium experts, please!

    Look like Gower Ramsey. The problem is, without proper identification its very difficult to tell whether its O Gower Ramsey or O Sweet Sugar. The two are almost identical. Someone said that Sweet Sugar have bigger flowers than Gower Ramsey. My Gower Ramsey (at least thats what the vendor told me) sometimes have big flowers, sometimes smaller depending on the health of the plant.

    Whether its Gower Ramsey or Sweet Sugar, thats a lovely flower, NTG. I love them because they never failed to bloom for me and they don't require much of my time.

    I agree with Tanya - it is really hard to tell the difference unless you see the two together, and they have been grown in similar cirmcumstances. I'd just be happy I got it to grow at all!

    What a good feeling to watch a plant that started as a seedling bloom! Congratulations
