Howeara Lava Burst ‘Puanani’

This complex hybrid oncidium is an extremely reliable grower and bloomer.  Every year, I get five or six spikes, which give a first bloom, then branch and keep on blooming for at least a couple of months.  As far as oncidium intergenerics go, it’s a miniature, so it’s perfect for windowsill growing.  It doesn’t need water that often, although like any other oncidium, the leaves will “accordion” if you let it go too long without water.  It’s probably a good choice for beginning orchid growers, since it’s fairly idiot-proof.
