Oncidium Intergenerics

Home > Store > Plant Families > Oncidium Intergenerics
Odontoglossums are spectacular in colour and shape but for the most part cool growers that are difficult even for the experienced grower in the house. However, we would all like to have the great shape and fabulous colour that they impart to their progeny. The pure reds and yellows will tolerate warmer temperatures. Most people do best with these and the other intergeneric hybrids that tolerate more warmth. The species of Oncidium, Miltoniopsis, and Odontoglossum plus a few more allied genera are mixed together through hybridization to produce a vast, almost never ending array of flower forms and colours. Names like Aliceara, Beallara, Brassidium, Brassada, Colmanara, Degarmoara, Miltassia, Miltonidium, Odontobrassia, Odontocidium, Vuylstekeara, Wilsonara, denote the plants that blend the best of the contributing species. These have the hybrid vigor that make them relatively easy to grow and flower. Give them good light and intermediate temperatures and they will reward you with lots of flowers. The graceful arching sprays can appear more than once a year.  Many are easy for the beginner.
