    Cool Oncda. Kilauea 'Hawaii'

    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.Name:  c1b8ed3a-247c-439e-9888-5c4e63c3413f.jpg

    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.

    A very nice, healthy looking plant Harvey. Something you can turn into quite a 'specimen orchid' in the years to come. AL
