Oncidium onustum 'Bountiful'

Oncidium onustum 'Bountiful' pieces

Oncidium onustum 'Bountiful' - Flower photo by Richard LindbergJust under two months ago I divided the Oncidium onustum. The result was the four pieces you see above. The two pieces on the left were mounted on cork bark. The two on the right were potted in rock because I judged the roots to be too poor to pot in bark.

Oncidium onustum 'Bountiful' - Plant photo by Richard LindbergOncidium onustum grows from Mexico to Ecuador and Peru. It is warm to hot growing and needs a complete dry winter rest from after blooming until new growth starts. The flowers are very long lasting.

Both of the mounted plants look like this. There is a great growth of new roots and the plant will be attached within another month. If you look closely you can see the two strands of fishing line holding the plant still on the cork. I like to have this show as little as possible and still have a firm mount.
