Introducing Odontocidium Golden Mirth 'Filini's Gold Dust' – a stunning warm-growing oncidium hybrid that will mesmerize you with its vibrant yellow and red speckled flowers. This intergeneric hybrid between Odontoglossum and Oncidium brings together the best of both worlds, resulting in sprays of magnificent brick-red flowers with lips adorned in a complex pattern of orange and yellow.

'Filini's Gold Dust' is not only a sight to behold, but it is also an ideal choice for orchid enthusiasts of all skill levels. Whether you're a seasoned orchid grower or a novice in the world of orchid cultivation, this variety makes the perfect addition to any orchid collection.

Cultivating 'Filini's Gold Dust' is a delightful experience, as it thrives in warm-growing conditions. Providing it with a temperature range of 65-80°F (18-27°C) during the day and slightly cooler temperatures at night will ensure optimal growth and blooming. This hybrid also appreciates a moderate humidity level of around 50-70%, which can be achieved by placing a tray of water nearby or using a humidifier.

Lighting is crucial for the success of any orchid, and 'Filini's Gold Dust' is no exception. It prefers bright, indirect light that mimics the dappled sunlight found in its natural habitat. A location near an east or west-facing window, where it receives filtered sunlight throughout the day, is ideal. Avoid exposing the plant to direct sunlight, as it may lead to leaf burn.

When it comes to watering, 'Filini's Gold Dust' appreciates a regular watering routine. Water the plant thoroughly when the top inch of the potting medium feels dry, ensuring that excess water drains out completely. Avoid overwatering or allowing the roots to sit in standing water, as this can lead to root rot.

For optimal growth, provide 'Filini's Gold Dust' with a well-draining orchid mix. A blend of bark, sphagnum moss, and perlite works well to provide the right balance of moisture and aeration for the roots. Repotting every one to two years, preferably in spring, will help refresh the growing medium and promote healthy growth.

Feeding your 'Filini's Gold Dust' orchid is essential to support its growth and encourage abundant blooms. Use a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half-strength and apply it every two weeks during the growing season. During the dormant period, reduce feeding to once a month to allow the plant to rest.

This is a blooming size in a 4" pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, Limited!

With its stunning flowers and easy-to-grow nature, Odontocidium Golden Mirth 'Filini's Gold Dust' is sure to captivate orchid enthusiasts and novices alike. Add this exquisite hybrid to your collection and enjoy the beauty it brings to your home or garden.
