Default identification of my new Orchid.

Hello to all my new gardening friends. Like I said in the other group
rec.garden.orchids I am now the proud owner of my very first orchid. I have
been wanting one for so many year.I was wondering if someone could help me
identify my orchid. I would like to read up on some care and just can't seem
to find what variety I got. Also if you have a good site to tell me about
feel free.
Once again
Thanks
stephane

Stephane -
You have presented a challenge. Most of us will agree it is in the
Oncidium alliance. I wonder if it had a scent of Chocolate or
Vanilla-chocolate?
http://orchids.legolas.org/gallery/v...m/aah.jpg.html
and looked something like this?

Or perhaps a very spidery look like this Brassia -
http://orchids.legolas.org/gallery/v...a/aae.jpg.html

This is an old pix of my Wilsonara Golden Afternoon 'Rich Yellow' -
But it is one plant that often dries the bulbs in that manner.
http://orchids.legolas.org/gallery/v...a/aaa.jpg.html

Colmanara Wildcatt 'Carmela' is the wild pattern, 'Bobcat' is dark red
with only a touch of yellow in the petals and sepals and a bright red
lip. 'Jaguar' is a much lighter version. These are now correctly
called Oncidium Wildcatt. Each clone has very different coloration,
but you can see how similar the Wilsonara is in flower shape.
http://orchids.legolas.org/gallery/v...a/aae.jpg.html

It may be impossible to ever fully identify your plant. You may also
find something that looks just as you remembered the flowers.

Mean time... The photo shows a thin psuedobulb looking slightly dry.
Leaves that are pleated suggest that both the water and the humidity
were low while the plant was growing. On the other hand it is a plant
with fine roots. They will rot if the moss it not allowed to dry
quite a bit between waterings. I do not grow well in moss, so I will
let someone who does comment further on water. Be careful With moss
the bottom of the pot can be sopping wet and the top appear very dry.
Do not allow any water to sit around or under the pot.

Enjoy and keep your eye open for something that suggests your plant to
you. Many orchids look similar. Unless there is a label buried in
the pot you can not guarantee the ID of this plant. Does not make it
any less great in your new collection. You will notice often we will
post hybrid or Noid. Our No ID's become Noid. Don't let anyone kid
you, we all have them.

Default identification of my new Orchid.

Hi sue and Thanks. What would be the best potting mix for this variety? I
know that they sell orchid mix that looks like bark and they also sell pots
in wood frame that lets the air pass.Should the room have high humidity?
should I mist the leaves once in while. I am really starting for the bottom
with orchid. Like I said I have a good dark green thumb since I am a
gardener/tree care. I have my own business but work only in the summer time.
snow keeps me out of work. Since Quebec city is more winter then summer I
have a lot of time for my new little baby the orchid. I can't wait to see it
bloom, I know I will get it to flower. I had a hoya for over 5 years and
finally got it to flower for me.
I had a look at the pics and I really hope that I get the little flower
since they have so much detail. I am really happy to get some good comments
and advice from the experts. I really like the links that you sent me.Thanks

Take care
steph

Default identification of my new Orchid.

The only think that makes me wonder about the oncidium-type ID is the broad
leaves. The pseudobulbs certainly look oncidium-like, but the leaves make
me think more along the lines of coelogyne or something. Can you describe
what the blossoms looked like?

In any case Stephane, your potting medium needs to allow plenty of air flow
to the root system, while still holding adequate (not sopping wet) moisture.
The reliance on gas exchange through the root system (more than primarily
through the leaves, as in terrestrials) is a major aspect in orchids'
evolution, so is a key to growing them.

Most orchids do prefer humidity, but a periodic misting in your home won't
really accomplish much, as the quick evaporation will result in dispersion
throughout your home, not just around the plant. If you do need to boost
your humidity, then a good humidifier would be a worthwhile investment. Not
only is it good for your plants, but it's good for you, too.

Default identification of my new Orchid.

I don't know what type of flower it will give me because when i got the
ochide the flower was already over. But that's what i wanted.I wanted to get
a suprise in a couple of years. i am sure glad to get some info from you
guys.I will repot it in some good orchid mix and i will get a basket so i
could get air flow. but like i was able to see not all orchids need the same
care. Should it get full sun? south window or est window.
Thanks again

Default identification of my new Orchid.

With those broad leaves, I would start with shade and gradually move to
brighter conditions in very slow steps, keeping a close eye on them.
Putting those in full sun would scorch the hell out of them.
