    A huge flower for the size of the growth, but that would be a hard one to keep in a pot, or even confine to a mount. It could make some interesting hybrids if the rhizome length could be controlled. Thanks for sharing an interesting species.

    You're gonna have to be happy with the third photo. The rest of the plant looks just like that.

    Time will tell if Oncidium scansor is the same as O. globuliferum. DNA people mash this into Otoglossum (Oy!) and the alternative is the segregate genus Brevilongium. There are a half dozen species with this growth habit.

    Thanks, botanist. This plant is still pumping out flowers.

    Oh. I'm just a hobbyist. Generally, DNA people can just eat my shorts.

    Holy Toledo, that is so cool. Great weirdness factor!!! You're growing it cool ... do you think it would do ok on the intermediate side of cool?

    Probably. It's a widespread species so it may be very adaptable.
