Oncidium ampliatum

Oncidium ampliatum - Plant photo by Richard LindbergI am just guessing with this Oncidium ampliatum. It has had a hard life as you can see from just looking at the last 4 generations of pseudobulbs.

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

The leaf on the new pseudobulb is the best I have had, but because I re-potted it, it may sulk for a year. It is now in a bigger pot and higher up so it can go over the edge better. I see some slug damage on the roots. It is not new, but just in case, the greenhouse will get a new round of snail bait and ant stakes.
