    A pretty thing - in my eyes. Flowers about 2 or maybe 2.5 inches across ; quite a small plant. Seems to like my S/H , but then most oncid' family do. These two spikes on one bulb, another has a single spike but only in early bud. Grown in a 3.5 inch pot. Will be nice IF I can get some more growths and fill a larger pot , but then I think that about a lot of my orchids.

    So much more interesting than the typical mass market Oncid mutts. You always seem to have the good stuff. Odm. prasestans, but Onc. praestanoides.
