I picked up one of these in April of 2012 in full bloom from a plant sale sponsored by our local Orchid Society. The initial spikes bloomed for over two months of fragrant bliss. It finally sent up a new bloom spike in August of 2013, and is currently in full glory. There is even a second bloom spike coming on, so it might bloom through Thanksgiving. My clone has a much more pink lower lip petal than typical Sharry Baby photos I have seen, which seem to be much whiter. The scent is like a spiced chocolate.

mmm, this oncidium has a delicious fragrance, most people say chocolate; but in my opinion it smells more like a mixture of some sorta roses and spicy candy LOL (if that makes any sense) the plant grows fast too... i've only had mine for 3 months and it has 2 growths 3 inches high, i'm still figuring out the maximum sun to give it... but it can withstand some morning sun as long as it is slowly put into it... i wouldn't let this orchid get under 55 F, but it will survive down to 40 F is my guess, it's pretty common but for good reason...it's easy to grow and gets a Inflorescence almost 3' long! it's a very nice onc hybrid in my opinon
