I bought this one in spike a while a go and now it has finally flowered. The tag that came in the plant has two names on it Odontoglossum tenue and Oncidium crisomorphum. This is a hand written label so I am guessing on the spelling. There is no x indicating a cross of two species or anything. I thought it could be two names for the same species but I have no idea. I have found pics of tenue on the internet but i don't think my plant is that because tenue has a pink colored lip mine doesn't. I can not find any info about crisomorphum. I talked to the guy I bought it from and he didn't know either he said none of the plants that came in had an x on them so it was unlikely that it had just worn off. Do any of you guys have an idea as to what this is?
I believe you aced this one!!! Great JOB!!!
I think that from the flowers and the information found by lebouc, it is most likely that your plant is a cross of the two unusual oncidium species! Nice! The flowers from your plant do bear many similarities (the markings, the shape) to one of the parents (Odont. tenue). I could not find a picture of the Onc. crisomorphum either but apparently the plant is being offered by an ecuadoran orchid vendor that I know very well. A different spelling might improve the result (Onc. chrysomorphum). This slight spelling change generates a lot of Google hits including several pictures. So check that out and have fun.
Happy holidays. Cheers. Hoa.
thanks alot, my plant is very similar to that one offered but unfortunatly no variegation, so I must have gotten a cross of the regular species
