    Oncidium Almost 600 species make up the natural genus distinguished by 1 or 2 leafed flattened psuedobulbs usually subtended by distichous leaflike sheaths where the inflorescence emerges from their axil. The flowers are spurless, with the basal part of the lip spread from the column which has no foot, and often with elaborate wings on either side of the stigma. Oncidiums can be epiphytes or more rarely grow on embankments and terrestrially, where they can enjoy any of the four climes depending on the specific environment for that species. There are many potting factors as well but most can adapt to pots, wood mounts, and wood slat baskets. The Oncidium alliance, which includes Odontoglossum, Brassia, Aspasia, Miltonia, Leochilus and many others are intercrossed often in orchid cultivation and are most likely the third most common cultivated orchid after Cattleyas and Dendrobiums.

Cypripedium L. Alliance All the previous groups were from the Subfamily Epidendroideae but this group is from the Subfamily Cypripedioideae and has no subtribes but it's genera include, Cypripedium, Paphiopedilum, Phragmipedium, and Selenipedium. This genus, lacking psuedobulbs, has fan shaped growths giving rise to a stiff and sometimes hairy inflorescence which can have 1 or many flowers opening either together or in stages. The genus has two distinct growing types evidenced in their leaves, those that are mottled or solid with more than one flower grow warmer, and the solid green with only one flower grow intermediate to cool.NEW The flower parts of Paphiopedilum are distinctly different than others with it's pouch like lip {#3 in photo} hanging below the sheild shaped "staminode" {#4 in photo} in the center of the flowers and on to the bizarre hairs warts and bumps of the linear petals {#2 in the photo}, and up to the cowl-like upper or dorsal sepal {#1 in the photo}. Sixty some species are found in Southern India to New Guinea and the Philippines. They are also related to our terrestrial Cypripediums of North America, commonly known as lady's slippers. They are best grown in pots with a wood media.

Orchid Mall Like above a location to find many orchid web sites.

Linda's Orchid Hybrid Abbreviations Ever wonder what the heck BLC or Burr or Alcra stood for? Well here's the spot to fix all that, not only are the correct hybrid names given but also what genera are combined to make such a named hybrid. So BLC becomes Brassavola, Laelia and Cattleya , and Alcra. becomes Aliceara comprised of Brassia, Miltonia and Oncidium. Heady stuff this is, as now you can see why it blooms when it does or if it needs a rest or why the leaves fall off. Try it when you buy a new cross.
