Odontoglossom Bictoniense x Oncidium Maculatum

BictonienseMaculatum917I purchased this Odontoglossom Bictoniense x Oncidium Maculatum on my visit to SLO Garden Orchids on September 13th.  It was in a six inch pot, and sitting with a large number of oncidium/odontoglossom hybrids along one wall of his second greenhouse.  The plant is in good shape with two pseudobulbs sprouting spikes.

From the SLO Orchids website: Odontoglossum bictoniense x Oncidium maculatum (Odcdm. Tillie-Loo) are both from Central America, growing at 3000 to 5000 foot elevations in partial shade, 1500 to 2000 foot candles and intermediate temperatures, 50F to 90F. The inflorescence is about 2 feet tall bearing many red on white, contrasting and long lasting flowers. This primary hybrid is a strong grower, thriving in broad climatic situations and needs a slight winter rest.

This should do well in my orchid room.  I will have to remember the winter’s rest
