    I love this bright and cheerful oncidiums. I know there are sop many different species with very similar flowers ( and a lot of hybrids too) but so what. Still very much worthwhile.
    I can see you are growing in "baked clay pebbles" -sold under many different names. Is it being grown in S/H ?

    Yes. I grow several orchids in S/H with different results. Lost some and flowered some. Not quite sure I'm doing it right. Think I need to water them more often then I am.

    Very nice.. I just got myself a small one, but in bloom. I love the cute flattened 'tortoise shell' pseudobulbs..

    you are growing it too wet, looking at from the moss growing in the pot. this guy likes to be mounted or grow it in flat pot with very large drainage holes, bc the pseudobulb grows flat and sideway.

    S/H usually means standing permanently in 1 or 2 cm of water/nutrient, in which case you should not water at all - meaning, not pour it in the top of the pot. I grow a great many oncidiums that way, but not this type, for as mentioned elsewhere, they seem to prefer a dry environment.
