Answer: Oncidium Sharry Baby is the "Chocolate Lover's Orchid". The one and half inch red mahogany blooms have a wonderful chocolate fragrance. Onc. Sharry Baby is a prolific bloomer, often blooming twice a year. The plants also grow very fast into specimen size plants, with well over 300 flowers on a mature plant.
The parents of this delightful hybrid are Oncidium Jamie Sutton x Oncidium Honolulu.
A sill on an east-facing window is the ideal spot; most orchids benefit from medium-to-high light levels and warm temperatures. The perfect window location also includes a heat source just below it. Orchids respond best to high levels of humidity; place pots in gravel-filled trays to maintain moisture around the plants. Good air circulation is also important for successful orchid growing.
Best wishes with your orchid!
