    Default Oncostele Catante 'Pacific Sun Spots In a Cluster of Color

    This is the second time this year this Oncostele has bloomed and I enjoy the mass of color at the base of the pot. Though this is not the first time I've shown photos of this orchid, I hope you enjoy the way the spike has grown this time around. ALName:  Oncostele Catante 'Pacific Sunspots' 017.JPG

    Hi Al,
    This is a new orchid for me, but I love it's shape and certainly the colour.

    this is one of my favorites. when i bought it the spike was all fanned out, the branches stretched out like a big flat triangle shaped branch, but when i get it to flower now, they don't fan out so perfectly, but i still love it. such a nice color. very hard to find in oncidiums. i think mine would like more light, it seems to be trying to climb out the window.
