Oncidium Sarcodes orchids

Oncidium Sarcodes orchidsPlant Oncidium Sarcodes Orchids firmly in well-drained pots, using equal parts of live sphagnum and fibrous peat. Give one good watering as soon as the potting is finished, and stand them in a light, warm part of the greenhouse.

They will require very little more water until the roots have taken hold of the soil—only sufficient to keep the pseudo-bulbs from shrivelling—and during the winter months scarcely any moisture is needed.

Oncidium Sarcodes flower in August and their height is about 1.5 feet.
