    Cool Oncidium splendidum

    Was getting the greenhouse ready for the freezing temps tonight when I saw this beauty in bloom with double spikes.

    I'm so glad I did not drag the tropicals (lemon tree, desert roses, etc..) out of the greenhouse yet. I had put away the heaters and opened the window on the door to the screen, but luckily I hadn't hauled the heaters to the barn for summer storage yet. This afternoon I got a bunch of cardboard boxes and clay pots to cover all of the banana trees that are coming up. Most are between 4 and 10 inches tall and all would die with even a light freeze/frost.

    Thanks for the comment on the oncidium!

    cheers,

    Well, it sure is purdy! Lotsa nice blooms.

    Doesn't look quite like mine, though. Are you sure it is Onc. splendidum?

    Well, that is what my tag says, but it was a gift from a friend, so IDK.

    Bruce,

    While the coloration is similar, I think what you have there is a hybrid. Lophiaris splendida (Thanks, taxonomists) has no large, barred sidelobes on the lip.
