Oncidium in formation

This stem of Oncidium orchids reminds me of choreographed dancers that are all in line one in front of the other and that fan out on cue.


Oncidium Wildcat 'Yellow'

I’ve often come upon a species of butterfly that I’ve never seen before when I visit butterfly exhibits but not so much with orchids.  I’m starting to get the hang of the names of the orchids when their show returns here each year.   18 more words


Tolumnia Bravo 'Nalo Beauty'

A pretty little Tolumnia with 1″ (2.5 cm) white flowers and variable dark markings on a tall spike. Blooming in a tiny  1.5″ inch (3.5 cm) thumb-pot this orchid likes regular watering and bright light and is deliciously fragrant. 31 more words


Onc. Golden Sunset 'Waiomao' x Tolu. Elfin Gem 'Kultana'

Gorgeous spotted flowers bloom atop three spikes on this tiny orchid. Not a bad show for this diminutive hybrid considering the plant is growing in a tiny 1.5 inch (3.5 cm) pot. 23 more words


Tolumnia Pink Panther #159

This delicate beauty is blooming in a 1.5″ (3.5 cm) pot. Easy to grow, this hybrid can flower twice a year and has a pleasant floral scent during the day. 87 more words


Oncidium Sweet Sugar ‘Million Dollar’ is in bloom again

I purchased this Oncidium Sweet Sugar ‘Million Dollar’ from eBay seller “Sophie’s Orchids” on March 3, 2016.  It bloomed right after I got it, and has now bloomed again.   57 more words


Maclellanara Pagan Lovesong 'Chocolate Thunder'

I purchased this Maclellanara Pagan Lovesong ‘Chocolate Thunder’ from Gold Country Orchids at their open house on November 18.  I went to the open house this day to attend a lecture by Paph Paradise about Paphiopedalums, but noticed this plant back in a pile of plants in their second greenhouse.   133 more words
