GENERAL INFORMATION

  • The Oncidium family is very large and includes many flower varieties.
  • The most common flower variety is often referred to as the "dancing lady".
  • This instruction sheet deals with Oncidium types that have thin leaves, pseudobulbs, and branching sprays with flowers colored in yellow and mahogany.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • It’s best to use shredded bark or osmunda fiber.
  • Keep it evenly moist though it’s best to occasionally allow for it to be nearly dry.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • During the growing season, feed with a weak orchid fertilizer bimonthly or scatter slow-release pellets in the growing media at the beginning of the season.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Grow in bright diffused light; east or west windows are ideal.
  • South windows will work but one should be careful of the brilliant sun that will come in during the fall through spring months.
  • If you have miniblinds or sheer curtains, you can break the light so that it is more diffused.
  • One of the best types of artificial light you can provide for your orchids is by using L.E.D.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Water when the mix just approaches dryness.
  • This will mean about every 5-7 days.
  • A way to check the mix for moisture is by sticking a wooden pencil into the mix about 3''-4''.
  • When you pull the pencil out, check the wooden end.
  • If it has turned dark in color, the mix is still wet and you should wait a day or two.
  • Oncidiums prefer clean water without a lot of mineral content.
  • Therefore growing best when you use distilled, reverse osmosis, or rainwater.
