Oncidium maculatum – 365 days of orchids – day 1851

To follow the long arching sprays of yesterday’s Dendrobium speciosum we have the massed branching flower stems of Oncidium maculatum.

Oncidium maculatum is native to Mexico and Central America where it grows in wet forests from 1000 to 2000m altitude. This habitat suggests it would be happy in either our Warm Americas or our Cool Americas sections and we have grown it in both although we have found that plants do best in Warm Americas where we keep plants wet and in relatively bright light which encourages the large pseudobulbs that flower well.

We grow the species successfully both in pots and in baskets.
