Dancing LadiesWednesday, March 31, 2010
At last I see the blooms from one my orchids. It's an Oncidium again but a mini one.
The spike of blooms is only about one foot in length.
The baby plant was given by my neighbour about 6 months ago (click here for the earlier post on this orchid). The orchid has now grown more stems. I used a small clay/ceramic pot with a drainage hole and filled it with pieces of charcoal, so that it drains fast.
The orchid is watered daily. On sunny days I water the plant twice a day - once in the morning and another time in the evening. I place the plant at a spot that receives afternoon sunlight.
This yellow Oncidium orchid is nicknamed Dancing Lady Orchid due to the flower's bottom sepal that fans out like a dress during a dance.
This orchid is an easy to grow type :-D
