Well, as a way to increase and spruce up my collection I picked up a large oncinium hybrid, a very gorgeous plant and had the most amazing almost spice smell (very nice in the kitchen while the weather was too cold). I moved the plant outside for better sunlight (which only hits my porch in the morning and not for extreme amounts of time. Both flowering stalks have finished their blooms. However, now the plant that was blooming (there are two in the pot), has its leaves turing yellow :-( I have not been over watering. Is it too much sun? I notice it not just on the leaves but also on the larger fleshy "bulb" of the orchid.
The Dendrobium is doing great however and I have high hopes for a second blooming cycle closer to autumn.
I don't know if the requirements of an oncinium is the same as that of a dendrobium.
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
