## Caucaea olivacea

In the oncidium alliance, but sufficiently far away to justify me posting in "other" rather than in the pure oncidium section.
A spike maybe 18 inches high with half a dozen or so rather well-spaced flowers ; small -just over 1 inch high , but as they say "worthy of inspection".
I have one or two other Caucaea species, all of which arrive as a small bundle of small bulbs. The first spikes are often just 8 inches or so, but as the plants get better established, the do improve..This one is now up to three leads in a 3 ½ inch pot, and may perhaps grow into a plant "worth showing" one day.
