Orchids are the largest flowering plant family on the planet and there are so many hybrids that is is very difficult for me, as a beginner orchid lover to identify them correctly.
Odontocidium orchid is a cross between Odontoglossum and Oncidium. This orchid flowers even twice a year and each spike can have up to 25 or more flowers.
The petals are deep golden yellow with burgundy markings and the lip is a brilliant yellow with just a few spots.
Hybrid orchids usually can survive in poor growing conditions which makes them great choices for beginner orchid growers, like myself.
Seeing these orchids and carrying for a few of them, its easy to understand why are so many people obsessed with orchids?
This will be my next orchid, a companion for my Beallara, as soon as I find one with a healthy, not shriveled pseudobulb, at the flower center.
