    This is a small/miniature, cool growing species that is placed into Oncidium by some. It has suffered in the past from root loss during Summer months if too wet. After moving to a hanging basket and getting good air movement, it has not had this problem in recent years.

    Amazing! I thought I had seen it all in orchids. Too bad it's cool growing.
