Onc. Twinkle (cheirophorum x ornithorhynchum)
I bought the plant last fall at Waldor's Orchids, the flowers are a pretty reddish (see comparison ) and they are very fragrant - spicy floral would describe it.
|Just a little mix -|
The plant seems to flower in waves along the spikes during the Winter for me. I keep the plant fairly wet (with good drainage) and shady. Temps in the greenhouse are about 62 degr F at night time and ramp up during the day to at least 70 degr. F .
The small flowers have a pretty fragrance.
