Slow recovery

Oncidium ampliatum grows in Central America and northern South America in hot lowland areas. It blooms from the fall into spring.

When I got this plant more than three years ago, the seller told me that it hated having its roots disturbed. I repotted it and sure enough, the plant was set back. It looked for a time as if it might die.

It is making a comeback now and it is a very interesting plant. I have never seen pseudobulbs like these, which look like rocks. It is actively growing and has enough pseudobulbs to bloom. It might still bloom this year.
