Oncidium cebolleta orchid, like pop corns


Oncidium cebolleta orchids.
The orchids has been with us for almost two years. They were in 3 pots. Then one of them decides to bloom earlier than the rest. That particular one is placed nearer to the edge of porch, therefore enjoying abundance of sunlight and warmth. The other two which stay further in the porch, remain cool and just watch at the blooming fiesta! The lips and callus are very much irregular in shape, and at a glance, resemble flattened yellow pop corns!!

  10. Orchids are beautiful flowers, but they were too shy to show face when my wife used to grow them last time.

  11. Thanks everyone. Some of us are real expert in orchids. I dont at least for now.

    We have orchids hanging at the front porch on horizontal bamboo. They do have adequate sunlight to enjoy. But there is no real indication if flowerings have specific blooming time... or probably they are just like any other plants, they have to reach maturity to start off blooming fiesta. So while our knowledge on orchids is still limited, any flowering comes with great surprise!
