Oncidium Speckled Spire 'Snowflake' is in bloom.

I purchased an Oncidium Speckeled Spire ‘Snowflake’ from Brookside Orchids at the Pacific Orchid and Garden Exposition in San Francisco on February 24th.  This is a large oncidium with two branching spikes, each 3′ or more in length, and it is now in bloom.   36 more words

Brien has converted all the orchids to misting a few times a day and took out full water which I’m relieved. I thought that they were getting too much moisture which could’ve been causing mold/da fuzzies. 159 more words

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
