365 days of orchids – day 204 – Oncidium multistellare (Odontoglossum multistelare)

This is a cool growing species found in cloud forests at around 2000m altitude from Ecuador to Peru.

The plant produces branched spikes of attractive flowers each summer and a small plant produces a lot of flower for its size.

This is one of the species of Odontoglossum that has been included in Oncidium by molecular studies although the plant can also be found under the name Miltonia multistellare. Some names are better than others but multistellare meaning many starred seems a good choice for this species.
