Default The plant truck came by again!!!

The man selling plants from his pickup came by again, and he mostly had roses and anthuriums this time - but always some orchids. So..... naturally I had to buy some!

This is a darker version of a dendrobium I already have - but too pretty to resist.

There are rarely labels on the plants, so no idea what this is.


Sorry the closeup is blurred, but is this another dendrobium, a hybrid maybe? I asked the man what conditions they liked, and he replied as always "si senora, sol y sombre"! But they must be fairly tough to survive being driven around in a truck all day with a bit of shade netting over them, and this is where I get my phals and cattleyas too.

But Bob, think of it this way, we can keep our beer in the garage and it stays cold with out freezing and our icecream on the patio without thawing, more room in the fridge and the freezer!!!! Gotta try look on the bright side of our northern situation, only 5 more months till spring

Haha! and you have reliable utilities (mostly). It is rare that we have power, phone and internet all at the same time! And you don't write a shopping list before you go to the store - you buy what is good today, then come home and look for a recipe that matches! (Just to make you feel better!)

No Stumpy - he never knows unless it is one of the very few that have a label. I asked him but all he would say was that it needed sun and shade - big help!! I would love to know what it is myself - hence the picture. Perhaps someone will know.

Yes - it is an orchid, and my guess is that it is an Oncidium or Odontoglossum hybrid.

Default Re: The plant truck came by again!!!

I'd go with Odont over Oncidum - Oncs don't tend to have that flower profile, and they generally flower on racemes, not singles or doubles. Actually, it looks like a South American hybrid...

Stumpy - trying to grow orchids of any type from seed is difficult at best, so it's actually much easier to order the grown plant. Ecuagenera sells some orchids that are very similar to the one of Cassie's that everyone's flipping over. Click here for Odontoglossums and click here from Oncidiums.

Here are some pics of my orchids for comparison purposes - the first two are Odonts and the second two are Oncidiums.

Oh, and your mystery yellow one reminds me strongly of an orchid called "Lycaste" although it's blooming upright so I might be wrong.

Thanks Lorax - I think you are right. But it is very difficult to pinpoint them with all the new hybrids and varieties. Easiest just to enjoy them for themselves and not fret over a name. Your plants are beautiful!!
