Oncidioda Jimbo 'Swarm'
Oncidioda is an Oncidium hybrid resembling Odontoglossum. This variety is more forgiving than Odontoglossum and produces larger flowers than expected from a typical Oncidium. Branched, tall spikes of yellow bordered orange flowers make this fantastic for display. A good beginner orchid.
Plant may vary from pictured. May not be in bloom.
ONCIDIUM CARE INFO:
Potting mix: Fine bark or bark/long fiber sphagnum mix. Repot in Spring.
Light: Bright indirect - medium light. Shielded South or Wast facing preferred. Bright North/East tolerated. Protect leaves from direct sun exposure.
Water: Water frequently in hot months when media is near dry. Do not allow to stay dry for long periods (pseudobulbs will shrivel, leaves will crisp and "accordion").
Temp: Intermediate-warm (55F min night, 85F max day).
Humidity: 30-60%, tolerant of low humidity.
Fertilizing: Heavy feeding Spring-Summer. 1/4 strength urea-free fertilizer, every other watering as new roots and leaves emerge. Flush the pot once monthly to remove mineral build up. Decrease to once a month in Winter.
