Oncidium cheirophorum x sib (‘HOF’ x ‘Kokusai’)
A true miniature with bright yellow blooms on tiny plants. This species is one parent of the famous Oncidium Twinkle. Flowers generally appear in late fall to early winter, with each inflorescence holding several branched stems.
Growing Suggestions: Suggested as an intermediate to warm grower with lots of airflow. Medium to bright indirect light is best, but they should be protected from strong mid-day sun. These are growing with sphagnum moss around the roots, and attached to wooden mounts. At this time we are watering them as soon as the moss is dry but not 'crunchy' which averages about 3-4 times per week.
These plants are Blooming Size (many flowered very young) and are growing on crepe myrtle wood mounts.
