    Default Oncidium Charlotte Ray "The Hollow"

    This is one that was a replacement. I think I like it better than the origional. Excuse the bluriness, I am in desperate need of new batteries.

    That's really nice, Traci. This was the replacement from that lady?

    Ok, I get it. Sorry, was confused. This is the plant she replaced the tolumina with. The seedling she gave you is a tolumina. For some reason I thought she had replaced your original plant with a tolumina, and given you a tolumina seedling on top of it. My mistake....

    Now I'm *really* confuzzled.
    This is one of the toluminas she gave me in place of my sick tolumina. The other is a seedling and hardly work using battery juice for. I think I understand myself now

    Some days, confusion seems to rule.

    My fault again. (I think...) Tolumina is a genus name, and the title of your pic was Oncidium Charlotte Ray, which is a hybrid. I thought that they reserved the genus Tolumina for the species plants.

    Don't know--I could be way off base here.... Sorry for confusing you.

    I have no idea. You are probably right. I just assumed anything that was equitant oncidium was tolumina. So should my plant really be called an equitant ? Time to do some research here....:check:


    OK, so I found nothing new. Two completely different explanations. One saying what you said, the other claiming any of the equitants with the V leaves were concidered toluminas. They should have made it all or nothing in my opinion. Nothing like confusing the heck out of a newbie.

    Here's my take on it--which may be wrong, I don't know.

    Equitant hybrids are still listed as Oncidiums. Equitant species have been moved to the genus Tolumnia.

    I guess that's why I got confused when you said she replaced your plant with another Tolumnia, and it was a hybrid with its own grex name.

    I checked too, and apparently, the RHS hasn't yet accepted the genus Tolumnia, so all equitants--species and hybrids--are still listed with them as Oncidiinae.

    Do you know if the plant she replaced (your old one) was an equitant species (with a lower-case name) or a hybrid (with its name starting in capital letters)?

    Not that it makes much difference at this point, especially since you got a healthy plant you're happy with; I'm just curious...
