This is an Oncidium orchid which was given to me over two years ago. It continues to flower twice a year. However, it became pot bound in a beautiful boat shaped pot one sixth the size of this one. The orchid was trying to flower but could not bloom because it just didn't have the energy. So Karen and I went out to the Portland Nursery and I found this wonderful pot. I had to buy some orchid bark and mix it with some soil and small stones. I set it in the dish it has always lived in. There is just enough room. Just. As I was knitting that evening, I though I heard it sigh. Within two day, the flowers began to open.. I think it is saafe to say ~~~ This is one happy Oncidium.
