These pretty flowers have a delicious, sweet perfume with notes of chocolate and vanilla. Oncidium ‘Heaven Scent Redolence’ is an improved form of the classic ‘Sharry Baby’ (crossed with O. ‘Ruffles’) it offers strong, upright flower stems packed flowers. There are usually one to two, 60cm spikes in a season. The blooms are brightly coloured and the petals have great substance.
Oncidium Orchids are at the intermediate level. They have long, narrow branching stems covered in fragrant flowers. Be patient with your plants, it may take a season until you see blooms.
Oncidium Orchids grow best in pots or hanging baskets. Grow in a well ventilated area in filtered light. Choose a good quality Orchid potting mix to ensure perfect drainage. Keep them watered, you don’t want your bulbs to wrinkle.
Originating in the tropics of South America, they require humidity, natural or man made to thrive, so ensure you keep your Oncidiums sheltered in cool climates.
