Caring for your Oncidioda Copper Scarab 'Brass Brethren' is a rewarding experience. As an Oncidium type orchid, it thrives in environments similar to its natural habitat. Most species in the Oncidium genus are epiphytes, although some are lithophytes or terrestrials, making them versatile and adaptable to various growing conditions. Originating from regions spanning from northern Mexico to South America, these orchids are accustomed to seasonally dry areas, requiring occasional watering and a well-draining medium to flourish.

Here are some essential cultivating tips to ensure your Oncidioda Copper Scarab 'Brass Brethren' thrives:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light for optimal growth. Avoid direct sunlight, as it may scorch the delicate foliage.
  2. Temperature: Maintain temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C) during the day and slightly cooler at night to mimic its natural habitat.
  3. Watering: Water thoroughly when the top inch of the potting mix feels dry, allowing excess water to drain freely. Avoid waterlogging, as it can lead to root rot.
  4. Humidity: Maintain moderate to high humidity levels, especially during the growing season, by misting the foliage or using a humidity tray.
  5. Fertilization: Feed your orchid regularly with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength during the growing season to support healthy growth and abundant blooms.
  6. Repotting: Repot your orchid every 1-2 years or when the potting mix breaks down, using a well-draining orchid mix suitable for epiphytic orchids.

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