    The flowers are so beautiful. Do you tend to get multiple spikes off of a large plant? That is becoming one of my criteria for whether I will accommodate a large oncid or not. It irritates me when I have been toting a 10 pound plant to the sink to water all year and I get one measly spike in a forest of pbulbs.

    yes, you can have more than one spike on the plant at the same time. They just never seem to open at the same time.

    I really, really love these blooms! I was astounded when I saw these at the botanical garden...but they sure do look a little intimidating! I may have to look around for this one!

    Default Mine was a bargain

    I bought one in bloom last year at the AOS society in Delray Beach, Fl for $22.50! Great bargains if you are a member and can get there.

    I guess I lied, it is currently in bloom again with 2 spikes. I saw this thread was active and didn't remember posting with this blooming. What a coincidence that this one was brought back at the time the plant is again in bloom.

    Hey !! Magnificent flowers.... I wouldn't be able to get rid of it either. I've got some huge odonto brassia hybrids that have really great flowers but the plants need to start paying rent pretty soon or out they go.
