Photo: Oncidium maculatum
Oncidiums have many flowers on upright spikes. They are a varied class of orchid including the classic yellow "Dancing Lady", exotic spider orchids (large flowers with thin sepals and petals resembling the legs of a beautiful spider - I actually saw a spider that looked just like the orchid in India!) and the sequential blooming psychopsis (butterfly orchid) that should be in bloom most of the time. Intergenerics, hybrids that are crosses between the genera, are included in this section.
