Right time, right place!

There is a large GC on my way home from work, I just happened to call in and got this for £1.80 ~ would have been a great shame to leave it there! Its a sweet sugar oncidium, about 15 inches tall and was marked at £16.99!!

normal orchid watering, you know when dry soak for 5-10 mins, then let drain out fully, keep away from draughts and it should be ok..

11 Jan, 2012

 

ok, thank you, same as my others then.

11 Jan, 2012
