Colmanara Kilauea 'Pacific Candy Corn'

Every time I mount one of these fine-rooted Oncidiums, I have to remember this. I have been using less and less sphagnum moss as a pad. The fine roots will tend to stay there and never attach well to the bark.

This one seems to be well enough attached. I'll clean it up and let the new growth get established.Later in the year I will sell it.
