A beautiful multi-floral Oncidium primary hybrid that is more compact that most standard Oncidiums. This floriferous Oncidium with a rare green color is free flowering and very easy to grow.

 The pod parent, Onc. multistellare (formerly Odontoglossum multistellare), is found in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia in dense, upper, montane cloud forests at elevations of 6,560 – 9,843 feet (2000 to 3000 m). It is

a small sized, cold growing plant with flattened pseudobulbs blooming in the winter and spring on 6-inch long inflorescence bearing up to ten 2-inch flowers. The pollen parent, Onc. fuscatum, is found from Panama south to Peru as a large sized, hot to cool growing epiphytic orchid with flat, oval, 5-inch pseudobulbs topped with a single broad glossy 6 to 10 inch long leaf. 30-inch long basal branching spikes produce dozens of very colorful 2-inch fragrant flowers with ruffled petals, color ranging from purple to light brown with lighter tips. The plants are free flowering.

 Onc. Irish Mist 'Winter Green' is weather tolerant, able to tolerate hot and cold conditions, favoring intermediate to warm. These plants thrive in bright indirect light, high humidity, and good air circulation. Water and fertilize regularly, keep moist year round but not sopping wet. Can be grown on a bright windowsill or under lights. Excellent plant for beginners. Do not cut the spike unless it is brown and dry, as it can sometimes branch and create more blooms.
