    Default Onc. Honeygirl

    Here are a couple of pictures of my latest acquisition. I saw it at the greenhouse and couldn't resist! It is my first true mini.

    I don't have the greatest camera so the pictures aren't the best but I hope you can see how pretty the blooms are.

    Default Cool!

    Your plant is actually a tolumnia. Very cool. There are miniature equitants that can be a bit finicky. Your plant is Tolumnia Barahona x guianensis.

    For an idea of taking care of this little guy see the link to the species guianensis here: IOSPE PHOTOS

    Thank you everyone for the kind welcome and kind words about my new little purchase. At least it is small so I could sneak it in without my husband really noticing yet another new orchid. :-)

    Clintdawley:

    Thanks for clearing up the name. I wondered how it was an onc. when the leaves looked nothing like one. They are very stiff and in a nice fan shape, just like the link you sent me to. I will do more research so I can keep it correctly.
