The original origin of the Oncidium is from North and South America: This area runs from Florida and Mexico to Peru and Argentina.
The nickname of the Oncidium Orchid is Tijgerorchidee. This name is due to the tiger print on the flower. There are many types with each their own tiger print. The length of inflorescences varies from a few centimeters to more than a meter. Special characteristics of the flowers are the multi-colored fleshy callus on the lip and the so-called "tabs" on the column.
The beautiful of the oncidium is that there are many buttons on a branch. If the orchid is at its peak, it's a sun in the house.
The Oncidium likes to be in a light place but rather does not have direct sunlight.
The Oncidium feels good at a temperature between 18 and 25 °
Watering once a week is usually enough, the orchid does not like its roots in the water.
For prolonged lifespan, regular spraying of leaves and roots is recommended. If the humidity is low, spray the smallest flower buds daily to prevent drying out.
Every 14 days Orchids fertilize according to the amount indicated on the package. In winter, no food from November to January.
Once every three years, use orchid soil. Do this in spring and if the orchid is bleeding out.
