    I have never been enamored with these flowers but I would grow this species for the foliage alone :clap:. Love it. Do you think this would have flowered without your warm house?

    The longest growth is 38". I got this in May a year ago and grew it in the intermediate house until February before the warm house was ready. It was rooting well intermediate but has definitely gotten longer and is putting out new growths in the warm house. There are a lot of things that I am seeing now grew and flowered in the intermediate (or even cool house) but do much better in the warm. They are more robust, more roots, more growths. Some of them, Stenia pallida in particular, has flowers twice the size and the flowers last a month instead of a week. I expect this would have bloomed in the intermediate, just not quite so soon and maybe not as well.

    I thought this was the species I got before I flowered it. Turns out cebolleta has pretty small flowers. I immediately knew I wanted a stayci.

    I truly didn't expect it would be that long. Beautiful but way too long/big for me... I will just have to admire yours. Thanks

    Oncidium stacyi, a very beautiful Orchid. The longest leave is 1,96 meters(77,16535")
    To make pictures I must hanging it at a door behind the house. I have 2 plants, and last year I polinated it and shared the seeds in 5 Countries.

    I have it half shaded in my Greenhouse. It is a very hot Greenhouse, in summer the temperature is often 42 to 45 degree. In winter 16 to 18 degree. In summer I have it 50% shaded. The plant is hanging in the middle of the Greenhouse. Other Orchids shaded it too. Importand is a good and strong fan to dry it very fastly. Is it to wet, the leaves get' black spots.
