    Default Oncidium phymatochillium

    This oncidium is really putting on a show. The blooms are tiny, but the spike is long and branching. All attempts to photograph the entire spike failed because the blooms are so small, they are lost against all the other orchid blooms in the gh. Anyway, here are two shots of the individual blooms for you to enjoy.

    I like that! Get one with blooms about 3 times as big and a shorter spike to fit in my grow area and I'll take one!! LOL

    Tiny flowers, but pretty. Is the plant small or large?

    The plant is surprisingly small. The blooms are tiny. Here are some shots I took this morning.

    Default Nice!

    That is way cool. I love the small Oncids like ornithorhycum and cheriophorum. I wonder if this plant has been hybridized that often?

    ornithorhycum x phymatochillium = ?
    Cheriophorum x
    phymatochillium = ?

    There is potential for some really interesting things there!
