This is from the Philippine Islands and is one of my favorite oberonias.
Beautiful photos and plant!
Beautiful. My plant is still a single fan with one inflorescence but I still marvel at the spiral arrangement of the blooms and the over-all graceful nature of the species.
Beautifuly grown plant.
I bought one many years ago from a Phillippino grower;it looks similar, not so well grown though.
Crikey, that specimen is tremendous! I bow to you.
Ditto. Where do you get this stuff? How do you buy from a Phillippino grower?
With humility, I can say that my shopping skills are legendary. I've also done a lot of trading over the years.
This particular plant is from Purificaccion Orchids from the Philippines. I have ordered from them in the past but now they come to the POE in San Francisco which is much easier. I'm pretty sure they also go to Redlands.
For those interested in this species, I just bought one yesterday from Andy's, after calling Andy at Marni's suggestion. It wasn't listed on the site but he had three left. After mine, he's down to two. Better move fast! -Stephen
Yes, they are on the list of vendors.
Thanks for the tip...he's down to one.
I was out looking at my O. setigera this afternoon and discovered 2 little seed capsules. They are so tiny that I had to use my hand lens to confirm that they were caps. They are only apparent because they extend out from the inflorescence about twice as far as the blooms. The inflorescence is still fresh so they aren't very old yet. Does anyone know if this species commonly self pollinates?
Some oberonias do quite profusely. I don't know that I've noticed them on this species. I used to wonder how Oak Hill Gardens managed to pollinate those oberonias they sold until I figured out they were probably all spontaneous pods.
Could someone please tell me how to care for Oberonia? I have managed to kill two of these. The leaves start turning an orange color and then the plant dies. I have tried mounting (killed it) and growing in pot (killed it). The one I currently have is growing in a pot. Please advise
What conditions are you growing them under? Window sill, terrarium, greenhouse, under lights? What are the temperatures at night and during the day?
I have two setigera and I am sure one is mislabeled....
Interesting species. Thanks.
Ob. rufilabris, not setigera.
I had forgotten about this posting. I've corrected the title.
Hi , can you say me how to care it ?
Welcome to the forum. I grow mine in an intermediate greenhouse (56 to 80F) in moderate to moderately bright light. I give them a short wet/dry cycle. They are watered daily for most of the year and are dry by the next day. I use dilute fertilizer and most waterings. I have good humidity and good quality water and constant air movement.
