    I have no idea what to think of the individual that named this hybrid but it certainly is pretty.

    Who's thinking should we be questioning???? Nobody registered an oncidium with that name.

    Interesting observation Ray.
    It's technically a Gomesa I see, eh?
    Just reporting what the tag said but it looks like "Gomesa" and "Oncidium" are synonyms to the AOS so I guess either genus is accepted.

    And it is the singular "Shower"

    Just can't believe what ends up on tags I guess. Even from the growers.

    I didn't pick it out. It was an award.

    Ah HAH! It never even occurred to me to drop that "s".
