Oncidium trivia

It is always useful to know where to look for spikes. We know that spikes on Oncidiums come on mature pseudobulbs off of one side. Sometimes there are two spikes, one on each side.

The first spike always comes from the side with the larger leaf at the base.

This is a Colmanara Wildcat 'Leopard' backbulb that just bloomed. Now that I have the pictures, I will cut off the spike and let it use the strength for the next generation. This pseudobulb and the roots are healthy, but small, and the spike is also small, only four flowers.
