    Those are cute. I try to avoid the oncidiums these days. If it isn't a huge spider oncid it just melts in the heat here. Gorgeous little things...I've killed one or two so far.

    Hi Jeromy, I have a red, yellow, pink and a fragrance fantasy, all four bloom for me well but they all have
    brown leaf tips. I think most of my problems come during the summer when my plants are outdoors. They
    are probably getting too much direct sun, that being said it's nice to see healthy green leaves. Nice job.

    Hank.....

    Both forms are lovely. In fact all varieties of Onc Twinkle are beautiful, but I find it very difficult to grow them in our hot lowlands - the flower buds don't fully open or blast, and the plants struggle to survive and usually die in a bout a year under my care. Yours are so lovely and healthy.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. These do seem to sulk a bit around July and August here, but then have a crazy spurt and push up spikes. These dont need much light at all compared to the big oncidiums. I grow mine with paphs and phals under about 1500fc.

    I've got all three of mine in spike also. I hope they become as beautiful as yours (fragrance fantasy). I have also red fantasy, but they have bloomed already (all except 1 that's in spike). I'll post pictures when in bloom.

    The Twinkles are definitely a cute bunch, but I have always had problems keeping them alive let along getting them to bloom.
