    Default Oncidium Sweet Sugar

    This is your common Oncidium hybrid which was given to me as a gift about 3 years ago. The bright blooms really brighten up dark gloomy days like today. Picture was taken a couple of years ago but the plant is forming a new spike.

    I like the larger flowers on that one. Almost like a 4N gower ramsey...Now, if they had oncidiums that produced 5" flowers, that's something that I could set aside space for. Yes, I am hopeless.

    Jason, thanks and that was exactly what I was thinking that it might be a Growers Ramsey. But I'm not an expert on Oncidiums so I really don't know.

    That's pretty Pete!

    I just came back from the nursery, where I saw a lovely gynormous Onc. (not sure what exactly) had spikes very long, made it look like a tree!

    They had a Phrag too! They never have Phrags, but of course it was a hybrid (something x longifolium. Can't recall exactly) and exorbitantly priced. Fun to see though. They had another, a Dick Clements, that looked as though something had been eating it, or it was a mutant. This is why I don't buy from these places. It is a nice nursery, but not an orchid growing one!

    Thanks, Heather!

    I would never buy orchids especially Paphs and Phrags from a non orchid nursery. Do post pics of your carnivorous plants.

    They might be common, but they're still pretty darned cool. The biggest (in terms of flower size) yellow Onc. I've seen so far is Jiuhbao Gold. Those put on just a heck of a show.

    Nice pic, Pete! I like seeing you diversify every now and again lol!

    Thanks, lja! I do like the yellow blooms because I can see the color yellow and the blooms brighten the dark, cold winter New England days.

    I was going through my books tonight and came across this and though "hey, that's Pete's plant!"

    You are teaching me a lot about identification, you know.

    I went through the Phrag. species quiz tonight too and got all but, maybe 2 or 3 right. I'm learning! You need a sanderianum though, to be complete!

    Oh yes, I do have a Paph sanderianum.

    How can a Paphnut not have a Paph sanderianum in his collection?

    Yes, I know but I haven't seen your pic yet!

    Oh yeah, and Shhh! You are tempting me again!
