I bought this back in February not in bloom from what has become my favorite on-line vendor. It is the most challenged orchid from this seller from the moment it arrived. It has had a hard time in the past it appears. And the color is not as bright as it was in the picture of it on the website.
It grew a small spike under my care that barely extended out of the leaf it emerged from. The spike has 5 flowers that all opened between Sunday and today, Wednesday
Oncda. Kilauea 'Hawaii' (Onc.sphacelatum ' Sunbeam' AM/AOS x Oncda. Charlesworthii ' Mishima' HCC/AOS)
I took this picture with my phone on my way out the door this morning. I'll add pics from my real camera later today.

Very nice. Looking forward to seeing the other pictures.
gotta love this
i find that especially with oncidium types that some orchids when shipped in a state of growth, meaning the vegetative part is in process of growing a new bulb and leaf, that the growth will sort of stunt and never finish growing. some will flower a bit like yours in spite of themselves. the next growth or 2 should come back to normal with good care, and bloom normally too. they just need to get through their pout.
I like it. P-R-E-T-T-Y!!!
A very nice, healthy looking plant Harvey. Something you can turn into quite a 'specimen orchid' in the years to come. AL
