    Talking Brs. Eternal Wind 'Sato'

    I have a few of these spider orchids in bloom currently. I love them and how fast and large they grow, but they are so hard to photograph. These shots turned out alright...

    beautiful! i have a brassia i bought in bloom about a year ago, and it's not doing so well. it might be a miltassia, but the flowers are shaped like brassia (but almost a solid brown). it is a big plant, slightly larger than my miltassia shelob even, and the original bulbs were round shaped, compressed, but thick and succulent. not oval like an oncidium. i was told to give it a little less light than oncidiums, but the new growths came in spindly, and weak. the bulbs were stretched and thin, oval shaped. i have since moved it into brighter light with my oncidiums. it has some newer growths that look ok so far, but cannot see the bulbs yet, they are still developing. meanwhile,t hose spindly growths are dying out. i assume that it is normal for an oncid type to abort weaker growths (i've seen this before). i need to break this pattern though! so, how do you grow yours? brighter light than oncids? same light? less light?

    Very nice. Love the contrast between the light-colored lip and the rest of the flower.

    Brighter light than most of my other oncidiums. I hang then just under my cattleya orchids.

    Beautiful Brassia. Tried growing one years ago. Finally traded it off as I just could NOT get the stubborn thing to bloom.

    I love the flower shape on these too. I also have one that I've been struggling with.
