This plant has been in my collection for several years, ending with a potful of bulbs, but never a sign of a flower. This Spring I knocked it out, found poor roots, cut off all the back-bulbs saving only the two front bulbs, and put it in a new pot with sphagnum moss as the compost.
No new growth yet, but this fine spike, well over a metre tall, branches, and lots of buds. Only a few flowers out so far, as seen here. Big flowers, maybe 11cm high and as much broad.
Please, please Mr.Oncidium, open a lot more and don't drop any, in the next two weeks... It should be good at the Autumn (Fall) show of Bournemouth OS on 28th....
