    Default Oncidium Wildcat

    I guess for some things I just have an addictive personality. And so it is with orchids.

    I have always had a green thumb for all types of plants but now I have recently gotten into the different varieties of orchids and now have the sickness. I am addicted to them.

    I am currently fully on window sills and stands in front of my windows. I think there is adequate light for most varieties. But did just find an adjustable height artificial light system to sit on my table. I may have to buy a second one once I get the first one in and see how it is and how much light is supplied by the fluorescent tube.

    My most recent orchid is a zygo Advance Australia. It is spiking now but has not opened yet. It will be open in the next 3 or 4 days (my uneducated guess) and I will post a picture of it at that time. It is a beauty!

    This is my oncidium Wildcat

    I think we're all addicted, but it's not a dangerous addiction (except for your wallet/credit card)

    Yeah, I was just looking at my bill. And I still have not been charged for the grow station (on-order) that I am setting up.

    Good thing I just got a big raise at work!

    For the other yellow one, yes. The pink spider, no. They both came from the grocery store and are doing very well.

    I will post the name and a photo when I get home and have access to the label.

    Here is a picture of the noid pink one.

    Could the pink one be a Miltassia?
