Oncidium spilopterum

Growability scale = 4 (1=extremely easy, 10=very difficult)
Oncidium spilopterum is a not often seen species that is
generally 8-10" tall when mature, 2/3 of which is leaf. The
flowering habit is unusual, with just a few blooms clustered
at the end of a medium length spike. The blooms themselves
are 1" with brown segments, a distinct purple callous and a
large yellow lip with no markings. We grow this species in
intermediate temps, high around 90, either mounted or in small
pots, light about 3000 FC. They will tolerate drought but would
prefer to be watered when just getting dry.
