    Default opinion on this sharry baby?

    I know this is a sharry but any ideas what variety? The one my mom grows is a bigger plant with bigger blooms. These blooms are only about one inch long.

    I have seen both the larger Onc Sharry Baby's and smaller Sharry Baby's. Mine is a larger type.

    No idea of what it is but it isn't the same as mine. I'll have to add the variety name when I get home. I would get it wrong if I tried to add it without having the info in front of me.

    I have an Oncidium that is the offspring of Sharry Baby, looks just like the mother plant, but the whole thing is smaller, both the plant and the number of flowers, though the flowers are pretty much like the parent. Here is a comparison picture of Onc. Sharry Baby and Onc. Heaven Scent (note that the flowers have a little more white on them too, also the Sharry Baby's spike was about 5' long and had over 100 flowers on it!):

    Thats a neat picture. Your big one looks more like my moms, her flower spikes are easily 3+ feet where my little plant is maybe 18 inches. It had a lot more flowers when I bought it, should have taken pics then but I waited until this bloom cycle.
    Yours seem to have more white then mine, if I remember right, last bloom cycle had no white.

    I don't have the exact (if it has any) name of my Sharry Baby, so that is no help. I just love the happy growth, tons of flowers and cool smell of them.

    This is my Sharry Baby. Of the larger variety (I added the gallon jug for scale). Has not bloomed for me. Though I was double shipped this plant and gave the other to a co-worker. It has bloomed twice for her in the office. She has a west facing window on the second floor. I have grown 4 new pb's since I've had it. It is getting tight in the pot now. And is now outside for the summer I hope. So maybe that will kick it into bloom.

    Not intending to hijack the thread.
