Hi,
Bought this babe from a nursery without knowing what it is... simply couldn't resist the fragrance ^_^/>/>
Can someone help me to identify so that I know how to care for it? Thx!

Looks like a hybrid of a mule ear oncidium. The gurus may know the exact name tho.

Thanks, guys! I googled for Trichocentrum and yes, the blooms look similar. Not particular about getting the exact name, just want to know which family it belongs to so that I know what is its best growing environment. Guess I am on the right track as I just found a new growth this morning. Yay!
I placed it at the entrance and its strong and sweet scent would always welcome me the moment I step into my little garden. Love it!!! :wub:/>/>

Oh yes... hopelessly in love. My hubba always complain that I spend too much time with my flowers but he still drives me to nurseries all over Singapore and Malaysia to buy me more plants :lol:/>/>
