    Question ID Help Requested

    My darn grocery store got a new shipment of orchids and I was unable to walk by this one without buying it.

    Unfortunately, it is a No ID oncidium alliance type.

    Does anyone have an idea of what it may be?

    Hey, I have that very same excuse way too often! But NOT as often as Harvey. Maybe a good thing we live waaaaay out of town and I don't walk by orchids very often? I have no idea as to the specific name of it, but very pretty!

    There are many orchids that look very similar, but have genetic differences. if you buy an orchid with no ID, enjoy it, but don't presume that this oncidium is Catanate 'Pumpkin Patch' because there are many similar.

    I don't expect to do any breeding so any name will do!

    I think Coeruleo could have got it right. Very pretty Oncidium.

    I think so as well.

    All the details match many of the ones imaged on line.

    And BTW- I haven't used this 'excuse' in a long time. I am an addict of orchids, nothing I can do but enjoy it!
