    Smile My newest

    I don't have any photos to share yet, but I've acquired 3 new orchids since last I visited the forums. I finally have an Onc. Sharry Baby that I've been wanting for quite some time! Not in bloom yet, but getting there! And my grower surprised me with tucking a small clipping of a Dend. Loddigessii into my order, for no charge, that I had been interested in. It has a ways to go before blooming stage, but I eagerly look forward to watching it grow. It's a tiny section right now and looks very healthy. If luck be with me, I can't wait to see the blooms one day with the furry lips! My third newest is a Dend. Pegasus that I bought in bloom over the weekend. It's quite pretty, I'll take pics soon. It seems to have a very subtle floral fragrance that I can't identify, but it might just be my hopeful imagination.
    Anyone have tips on care for Oncidiums? The Sharry Baby is my first. I've read lots about them of course, but I love to get firsthand advice as well. Thanks!

    Nice choices , the Sharries smell so good . I grow mine in Medium light , moist when growing or in bloom , a little drier when doing nothing , but if to dry and growing bulbs and leaves the leaves will accordian and trap the spike . They usually develop freckles on the leaves , nothing to worry about if it happens . There must be a way to avoid them if so I have not found out what it is . Be sure to take pictures when they bloom Gin
